Yesterday, I bid good riddance to the traitors who threaten to abandon our nation if their candidate doesn’t happen to win the election this Tuesday. These miscreants need to go now. I just didn’t realize how many of them they are.
The Seattle Post-Intelligencer ran a story today about the many celebrities who have vowed to the flee the country if Donald Trump becomes president. That alone is more than enough reason to hope that Trump wins. We have too many celebrities here already, don’t you think? My bet is that Canada isn’t going to want them either.
Of course, not all of them plan on heading north of the border. Some have plans to decamp farther afield. A lot farther afield for a few. Like away from Planet Earth.
Let’s make a brief list of a few of the places that may be the new homes of those who are so proud to boast of their lack of commitment to the country that made their success possible:
Canada: Bryan Cranston (of “Breaking Bad”), Barbra Streisand (or Australia), Lena Dunham, Neve Campbell, Keegan-Michael Key, Raven-Symone, Chloë Sevigny, Amber Rose
Mexico: George Lopez
Spain: Amy Schumer, Chelsea Handler
Italy: Omari Hardwick
Australia (or maybe Canada): Barbra Streisand
New Zealand: Ruth Bader Ginsberg (or maybe not; but that’s what her late husband threatened)
South Africa: Samuel L. Jackson, Eddie Griffin
Parts Unknown: Whoopi Goldberg, Miley Cyrus (hopefully with her achy-breaky dad)
Another Planet: Jon Stewart, Cher (don’t you think the two of them would make a lovely couple?)
Now, Barbra Streisand has a lovely mausoleum all set to receive her dead body in the same cemetery in which my maternal grandparents are buried: Mount Hebron in Flushing Meadows, Queens. Perhaps she can pay to have it hauled off its foundation and onto a northbound flatbed.
What would be really unfair would be if Babs became a Canadian citizen and then had her dead body carted back to New York City for burial. Then again, I suppose there is some justice in having her spend eternity in the hometown of Donald Trump.
