The wife of prominent ABC news anchor George Stephanopoulos, Ali Wentworth, has claimed the couple will leave the country should Donald Trump become president of the United States.
Talking to The Hollywood Reporter, Wentworth said that “If Trump wins, we’ll start looking at real estate in Sydney, Australia. No crime, no guns.”
The couple’s plans pour further scorn over Stephanopoulos’s supposed “objectivity” given his role as a prominent interviewer for ABC, having interviewed Donald Trump twice over the election cycle.
Yeah, right, sure they will. Mr Stephanopoulos has a $105 million contract with ABC News, and he isn’t about to walk away from that.
Other public figures, who have promised to leave America should Trump be elected president next Tuesday, include self-proclaimed comedienne Amy Schumer, actress Lena Dunham, and pop star Miley Cyrus.
It would almost be worth voting for Mr Trump, just to see all of these blowhards hit the road; we’d even help them pack!
But, we wouldn’t really have to help them pack, because we already know: the vast majority of them are lying through their scummy teeth.
Well, I’m an American, through and through, born here, born of parents who were both Americans; on my mother’s side, I have an ancestor who arrived on the Mayflower. As much as I despise Hillary Clinton, as bad as I believe her policies, and the policies of President Obama, are, as much damage as I believe that they have and will continue to do to this country, I’m not being run off, I’m not leaving, I’m staying what I am: an American. It doesn’t matter who wins tomorrow: I’m staying.
I’ll admit it: it pisses me off to see wealthy Americans, people who have gotten rich by being Americans, saying that they’re going to leave if a Republican wins the presidency, when everybody knows that they won’t. It would be karmic justice to see these [insert plural slang term for the rectum here] have to eat their words, and admit that they’re staying, because, wealthy as they are, they would lose money by leaving, and they’re a heck of a lot better off here than anywhere else.
