One of the problems with believing your own “PR” and letting your ego get carried away with your sense of importance is that at some point, life is going to call your bluff .’s a common problem with celebrities – major stars and even the lesser ones, who are convinced that the general public hangs on their every word and waits on their pronouncements about everything from legalizing marijuana to climate “change” and any number of subjects in between about which they have no more knowledge than the average citizen.So as the Hollywood elite raged against the idea that a brash, sometimes boorish billionaire from Queens could actually become the next president of the United States, the level of rhetoric and noise rose as they made one exaggerated threat – or promise after another.
No sooner had aging “Material Girl” Madonna promised sexual favors to strangers who could prove they had voted for Democrat Hillary Clinton, than a cast of characters began appearing on talk shows, in videos and in interviews vowing to leave the country if Trump was elected.
Evidently expecting a public outcry over the idea of Justin Bieber returning to Canada that would prompt “undecided” to rush to the polls to cast their vote for Hillary, big name stars swore they would rather give up their citizenship than simply abide by the decision of their fellow countrymen.
Early Wednesday morning, as Hillary Clinton’s campaign chairman was sent to dismiss her loyal supporters who had been standing and waiting for hours at a victory party that had faded to a wake, moving day dawned on Hollywood.
The list includes liberals like Jon Stewart, Amy Schumer and the inexplicably popular Lena Dunham who make their livings ridiculing and insulting anyone who disagrees with them – calling them “racist,” “sexist,” and “bigots.”Rosie O’Donnell, who famously engaged in a long-running, insult-hurling feud with Trump, also promised to leave if he became the president, possibly moving many to vote for him.
But among them are those who, frankly, could turn in their official citizen relinquishment papers on January 21, 2017 without doing any damage to America.In fact, the country might well be better off if Al Sharpton, Whoopi Goldberg, Spike Lee and Miley Cyrus relocated.And it’s hard to see how the loss of “big names” like Natasha Lyonne, Amber Rose and Omari Hardwick would impact life in the United States on any level.Many Americans might not even realize that oldsters like Cher and Barbra Streisand hadn’t already “moved on” – that’s how little relevance their threats or promises are to life in America.
