It’s hard to believe why so many celebrities are ready to leave the country now that Donald Trump has been elected. It’s as if they feel that liberals will be hunted down and shot in the streets, or that all of a sudden the San Andreas Fault will open up and swallow the country whole.
Independent Journal Review reported that Chelsea Handler, in her latest show with Barbara Boxer (D-CA), broke into tears over Hillary Clinton’s loss. She repeatedly said how she wanted to move to Spain and to move there right now.
Boxer, in a rare moment of wisdom for Chelsea admonished her that she had to stay and fight and use her voice to affect change. That seemed to placate the comedian and host who months ago announced that she had already bought a home in Spain in the event that Trump won the election.
She even went so far as to say the she’s not “like these people that threaten to leave the country and then don’t.”
Whether or not she moves is really of little consequence to society and the nation as a whole. But, she and her fellow liberals who want to take their ball and go home, seem to think that by leaving they are teaching the rest of us a valuable lesson. It’s as if they are saying, “I’m leaving, you’ll see that you can’t get along without me, and then you’ll be begging me to come back.”
This is a free country and if you are unhappy, and think that this so terrible a place that you have to leave, then by all means do. That is your right. But, only by sticking together, talking about and resolving our differences, can we ever expect this country to heal and become even greater than it already is.
