Bruce Springsteen & other celebs are being whiny teenagers, threatening to run away if Trump wins. If only they would
Liberal celebrities are once again promising to flee the US if Donald Trump wins reelection. But why wait? Instead of threatening us as if it really matters, Bruce Springsteen and others should just hit the road.
One of the more annoying aspects of the 2016 presidential election was the constant yapping from celebrities about leaving the country if the former host of ‘Celebrity Apprentice’ was elected president over their precious and not-at-all flawed pick, Hillary Clinton.
Lena Dunham, Amy Schumer, Snoop Dogg, Miley Cyrus… one after another doled out their empty promises, thinking they could hold Americans’ votes hostage simply by threatening to become expats.
Well, it’s that time of year again, folks, and we’ve already got celebrities doubling down on that winning strategy once more. Two of the biggest names to threaten us with the possibility of vacating the US are Bruce Springsteen and Motley Crue drummer Tommy Lee.
“If Trump is re-elected – which he will not be; I’m predicting right now he’s gonna lose – if by some happenstance he should be, I’ll see you on the next plane [to Australia],” Springsteen recently told the Daily Telegraph.
Springsteen might want to start booking that ticket, because he tried predicting the election in 2016 as well and, like most liberals unwilling to accept that anyone could vote for someone besides Clinton, he was wrong.
Tommy Lee also recently whined about a potential Trump reelection, saying he may be moving to Greece – where he was born when his father was in the military – if it happens.
Asked by the Big Issue what he would do if Trump beat Joe Biden, the drummer replied, “Dude, I swear to God if that happens then I’m coming over to visit the UK – I’m out of here. I’ll go back to my motherland, go back to Greece and get a house on one of the islands.”
Ironically, in another part of the rambling interview, Lee says we need to “stop voting for celebrities and get someone real to run the US.” So these “celebrities” aren’t good enough to run for office, but they should be the ones telling us who to vote for and threaten leaving the country if we happen to disagree?
