For the second time in recent history, the trash is promising to take itself out.
In an appearance on “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert,” Barbara Streisand claimed she would leave the United States if Donald Trump is elected president in 2024.
“How do you feel about the specter of a second Trump administration?” Colbert asked Streisand, who replied,
“I will move. I can’t live in this country if he became president.”
When Colbert then asked her where she would go, Streisand said “England, I like England.”
This isn’t the first time Streisand has promised to leave the country.
In 2016, she claimed she would move to Canada if Trump became president. When he did become president, she stayed in the United States.
Streisand isn’t the only one. Whoopi Goldberg, Raven-Symoné, Miley Cyrus, Brian Cranston, Lena Dunham, Amy Schumer, and Chelsea Handler have all made similar promises in the past, but none of them followed through.
“Obviously this country would be a lot better if the people who claimed that they were going to leave it after Trump’s 2016 victory actually would have left, but they didn’t,” Blaze Media digital strategist Logan Hall says.
Hall believes these celebrities “don’t really have a lot of loyalty to America.”
“They don’t really feel like they’re American. They can just go and pack their bags and release all these horrible policies on the rest of us of lesser means who could not leave,” he adds.
Blaze Media editor in chief Matt Peterson notes that these celebrities’ opinions couldn’t matter less, not just because they’re awful at staying true to their word.
“This is an 81-year-old actress. I have no idea why I should give two you know whats about what Barbara Streisand thinks about politics or anything else,” Peterson says.
