Leading up to election day, a number of celebrities insisted they would hightail it to Canada or elsewhere, should Donald Trump become the next President of the United States. Turns out, the American electorate didn’t really care whether these A-listers stuck around or not. Here’s a list of celebs who have hopefully already started packing!
1. Lena Dunham
At the 2016 Matrix Awards, Dunham told Andy Cohen that she would move to Canada if Trump wins the election. “I know a lot of people have been threatening to do this, but I really will,” Dunham said. “I know a lovely place in Vancouver and I can get my work done from there.”
2. Barbara Streisand
“He has no facts. I don’t know, I can’t believe it. I’m either coming to your country, if you’ll let me in, or Canada,” Streisand said about Trump in an interview on Australia’s “60 Minutes.”
3. Chelsea Handler
In more than one interview, talk show host Chelsea Handler said she would either move to Spain or Canada.
4. Neve Campbell
The “House of Cards” star Neve Campbell said her “biggest fear is that Trump will triumph.” When asked what she would if Trump won, she said, “Move back to Canada.”
5. Al Sharpton
Rev. Al Sharpton spoke at a Center for American Progress event in February. “If Donald Trump is the nominee … I’m also reserving my ticket to get out of here if he wins. Only because he’d probably have me deported anyhow,” Sharpton said.
Raven Symone, co-host of “The View”, said she would move her entire family to Canada if Trump won the GOP nomination.
Cher went even farther than just leaving the country. She’s ready to evacuate Earth.
8. Samuel L. Jackson
Jackson told Jimmy Kimmel, ““If that motherf—ker becomes president, I’m moving my black ass to South Africa.”
9. Miley Cyrus
10. George Lopez
The comedian and actor told TMZ, “If [Trump] wins, he won’t have to worry about immigration. We’ll all go back.”
11. Jon Stewart
“I would consider getting in a rocket and going to another planet, because clearly this planet’s gone bonkers,” Stewart told People Magazine at this year’s Emmy’s.
12. Spike Lee
Spike Lee told Vanity Fair be “moving back to the republic of Brooklyn, New York,” if Trump won.
Schumer told BBC “Newsnight” that if Trump won the election, “My act will change because I will need to learn to speak Spanish. Because I will move to Spain or somewhere. It’s beyond my comprehension if Trump won. It’s just too crazy.”
“Jesus Christ, I can’t even think about it!” Rose said. “I’m moving, I’m out! I can’t. And I am taking my son with me! I would be devastated, to be honest with you!”
Hopefully Hollywood, and America, will survive should all of these figures follow through with their vows.
