Growing List Of Celebs Vow To Leave US If Trump Wins

| by Robert Fowler

A number of celebrities have gone on the record that if Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump wins the general election, they will be packing their bags and leaving the U.S.

The growing list of celebrities who have vowed to leave the country if Trump prevails include former “The View” host Rosie O’Donnell, actors Samuel L. Jackson and Omari Hardwick, comedian Eddie Griffin and businessman Barry Diller, according to Inquisitr.

Civil rights activist the Rev. Al Sharpton has stated that he’d depart from the U.S. if Trump wins, adding, “only because he’d probably have me deported anyway.”

Former “The Daily Show” host Jon Stewart, who has poked fun at the business mogul for years, claimed he would do something even more drastic than ditching the U.S.

“I would consider getting in a rocket and going to another planet, because clearly this planet’s gone bonkers,” Stewart said of a hypothetical President Trump, New York Daily News reports.

Musician Cher tweeted out that if a Trump presidency comes to pass, she’d move to Jupiter.

“The View” host Whoopi Goldberg has expressed that she wouldn’t recognize a Trump-led America while co-host Raven-Symone said, “I already have my ticket.”

“Key & Peele” co-creator Keegan-Michael Key, famous for playing President Barack Obama’s “anger translator” in skits, said he’d skip out to Canada because, “that’s where I’m from; my mom lives there. It’d make her happy, too.”

During a Feb. 29 appearance on Fox News’ “Fox and Friends,” Trump’s sons, Eric and Donald Trump Jr., laughed off the mass of celebrities threatening to leave the country if their father is elected president.

“I’ll buy them their airfare,” Donald Trump Jr. said. “I’m more than happy to chip in.”

While a Trump presidency could see a mass exodus of American celebrities, the business mogul is not without his own famous endorsers, according to Rolling Stone.

Trump fans include rock musician Ted Nugent, country singer Loretta Lynn, “Duck Dynasty” star Willie Robertson, former boxer Mike Tyson, former wrestler Hulk Hogan, former wrestler and Gov. Jesse Ventura of Minnesota, conservative pundit Ann Coulter, Las Vegas entertainer Wayne Newton and former Gov. Sarah Palin of Alaska.
