Remember the rash of vows by American celebrities that they would leave the United States if Donald Trump won the election? With nearly a month-and-a-half to plan and execute their exodus, a total of none of them have left.
Social media buzzed about the masses of “regular” people who would leave as well. Canada was prepared to open the floodgates and take in the survivors of the American apocalypse with open arms. Since the election, a total of 28 Americans have applied for Trump-related refugee status. Unfortunately for these endangered liberals, their requests might not work even with so few of them.
According to Heat Street:
Of the 28 who applied, it’s possible none will be approved to relocate to America’s northern neighbor. The CBC found only two successful claims for asylum out of hundreds of cases filed from the U.S. since 2010. There was no successful claim out of the 170 filed in 2015.
The bad news for the rest of us is that the leftist Hollywood types have failed to follow through with their threats as well. According to The Blaze:
Among those who said they would leave are: Bryan Cranston, Rosie O’Donnell, Jon Stewart and Whoopi Goldberg, Miley Cyrus, Amy Schumer, Cher, Samuel Jackson, Lena Dunham, Barbara Streisand, Raven-Symone and others.
None of them have followed through and several have said following Trump’s election to the White House that they were simply “joking” when they made their vow.
Just when conservatives thought we’d have fewer progressives to deal with, they declined to follow through with their promises. This is just another case of how liberals are often all bark, no bite.
