Donald Trump has a message for celebrities who say they’ll leave the country if he’s elected president: Pack your bags.
The Republican presidential front-runner said Tuesday on ‘Fox & Friends’ that purging the United States of Rosie O’Donnell, Whoopi Goldberg and Lena Dunham would be a pot sweetener if he wins the White House.
‘We’ll get rid of Rosie? Oh, I love it. Now I have to get elected!’ he said during an early morning phone-in interview.
‘Now I have to get elected because I’ll be doing a great service to our country.’
He certainly would be. But they won’t do it. These whimpering asswipes always threaten the same thing every election cycle that has a Republican running in it; I’ve been mocking them here for it since the Dubya days, and not one of them has ever actually followed through on it, more’s the pity.
Another ‘View’ co-host, 30-year-old Raven Symone, boasted in February that she already had her escape route to Canada planned if the presidential election doesn’t end the way she wants it to.
‘My confession for this election is if any Republican gets nominated, I’m gonna move to Canada with my entire family,’ she said in February.
Bold added, by me, to highlight that the fascist moron slipped up and inadvertently told the truth there: these people talk about Trump being another Hitler, but the fact is they’d much prefer it if Republicans were simply prohibited from running for office, or speaking out, or even holding beliefs they disagree with; if they had their way about it, every conservative would be rounded up and herded into one of the gulags their ideological ilk are so justly infamous for. Tell me, who’s the Nazi again, now?
Donald Trump Jr., the real estate titan’s son, said in late February that he would fund the exit of any famous people who want to abandon the country in a Trump administration.
‘I’ll buy them their airfare,’ said Donald Jr. ‘Those are endorsements for Trump.’
The candidate later said he would ‘join with my boys and bank for it.’
Cher, Eddie Griffin, Barry Diller, Al Sharpton, Jon Stewart, Samuel L. Jackson and Omari Hardwick have all publicly discussed moving outside the U.S. if Trump wins.
And good riddance to every last one of you Marxist mouthbreathers. Any citizenry that prefers liberty to slavery would be way better off without you infesting and undermining it. Stop talking about it and just do it already, like Johnny Depp. At least he has the courage of his idiotic convictions, you can say that for him.
It is high time for me to put an end to your sitting in this place,
which you have dishonored by your contempt of all virtue, and defiled by your practice of every vice.
Ye are a factious crew, and enemies to all good government.
Ye are a pack of mercenary wretches, and would like Esau sell your country for a mess of pottage, and like Judas betray your God for a few pieces of money.
Is there a single virtue now remaining amongst you? Is there one vice you do not possess?
I command ye therefore, upon the peril of your lives, to depart immediately out of this place.
Go, get you out! Make haste! Ye venal slaves be gone! So! Take away that shining bauble there, and lock up the doors.
In the name of God, go!
Actually, Cromwell’s famous speech could be addressed to our own iniquitous Congress, too. In truth, it ought to be posted on the wall we’ll eventually end up having to build around Mordor on the Potomac. And Hollywood too, I guess.
