They are dropping like flies. Those liberal celebrities who said they were leaving the country if Donald Trump won appear to be completely full of shit. Amy Schumer has already backed out and now liberal buddy Chelsea Handler is doing the same. Her reasoning? She is just too damn important to this country to leave. I’m serious, she said this.
Chelsea started her prestigious NetFlix show in tears, complaining that the election didn’t go her way. She brought out some kind of gargoyle, later identified as Barbara Boxer, to help her deal with the reality that Hillary Clinton lost the election.
Before we get to her breaking her promise to leave the country if Trump won, here’s what she has said:
“I’m going to need to go to Canada if [Trump] gets elected. I don’t know what the rules are to move there but a lot of us are feeling that way. A lot of us are going to want to leave the country,” said Handler on a previous episode of her show.
“I did buy a house in another country just in case, so all of these people that threaten to leave the country and then don’t — I will leave the country,” she said in an interview.
She seems pretty serious about leaving the country if Trump won the election, which he did, so how are those moving plans coming along? In this weepy Barbara Boxer interview, Handler went back on her promise:
“It’s so easy to say throw in the towel and that we’re going to leave or I’m going to move to Spain, because I want to move to Spain. I really, really want to move to Spain right now,” said Handler.
But she ain’t going, because she is too important to leave:
“Everyone in my office is like, ‘You have a responsibility, you have a voice and you need to use it, and you have to be here,'” she said.
And Boxer was supportive of Handler’s decision to be full of shit:
“When you say, ‘I want to leave. I want to go,’ of course — it’s the flight syndrome. We fought now and we didn’t win so we’re going to fly away. That’s just what the people who gave this hateful message want us to do, and we’re not going to do it,” said Boxer.
Just to be clear, it wasn’t the “haters” who told Chelsea Handler to leave the country if Trump won, that was all her. She came up with this promise all on her own because she hates Trump and his supporters so much that she doesn’t want to live in the same country as them.
All of these liberal assholes that threatened to leave tried to use their celebrity status to influence the election the way they wanted it to go. It didn’t quite work out for them and now they all look like a bunch of babies and liars. The funny thing is, later in this interview Handler complained that America just elected a liar. It’s amazing how being liberal and lacking self-awareness go hand-in-hand, isn’t it?
