A bunch of celebs have spent months now attempting to make themselves relevant to the election by declaring they will leave the country and move somewhere else if Donald Trump were to win the presidency.
Now he has. So?
Will they really leave? And what is their response now that Trump has officially won?
Here’s the list and where they claim they’re going and the responses of those who aren’t still silenced by shock (in no particular order).
Cher claimed she would go to Jupiter if Trump was elected.
@gabeAlfassy IF HE WERE TO BE ELECTED,IM MOVING TO JUPITER 😖

But so far, we have seen no spaceship launched.
She did have this to say on Twitter:
IMBECILE GARY JOHNSON
BRINGS DOWN🌍BECAUSE OF
NARCISSISM & IGNORANCE ‼️JILL YOURE WORTHLESS ‼️WELD U COULD HAVE SAVED US,WHY DIDNT YOU😥

world will never be the same. I feel Sad for the young.🚽will never be more than the toilet, I’ve used as a symbol 4 Him.
U Can’t Polish 💩

2. Jon Stewart
Mr. Stewart also said he would move to another planet, commenting that, “I would consider getting in a rocket and going to another planet, because clearly this planet’s gone bonkers.”
Again, the spaceship hasn’t left yet…
She claimed she had already bought another house and was going to move to Spain, adding that while others threaten to leave the country, she was actually going to do it. No word yet on whether or not she’s done so, but her reaction on Twitter is puke-worthy.
My condolences to the President and First Lady. We will keep aiming high. We may not have you honored you this time, but we will honor you.

She can speak for herself on that one.
4. Miley Cyrus
The pop star took to Instagram threatening to move out of the country with, “My heart is broken into a 100000 pieces…I am moving if this is my president! I don’t say things I don’t mean!”
So, did she mean it? Is she actually leaving?
Not sure, but Miley actually cried because Hillary lost. As in, she recorded herself crying over Hillary losing. This actually happened.

Brainwashing. It’s powerful stuff.
Whoopi claimed it would be time for her to move if Trump won. She hasn’t come out to say if she’s still leaving, but in her latest Tweet, she at least admitted that she didn’t think everyone voting for Trump was racist… just that all the racists would be voting.
I do not think all those voting for Donald Trump are racist, but I do think ALL the racists will be voting.
— Whoopi Goldberg (@WhoopiGoldberg) November 8, 2016
The actress and vocal Hillary supporter claimed she would either move to Canada or Australia if Trump became president. No word yet on whether or not she’s packed.
At a Center for American Progress event, Sharpton said, “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.”
Here’s Sharpton on Morning Joe Wednesday morning. He hasn’t said anything about leaving, but he’s still spreading fear porn about how Trump ‘ran a campaign based on racial fears and division playing to the worst element’ and vowed ‘we are not going down without a fight and Donald needs to know that.’

8. Lena Dunham
Dunham claimed there is a 100% chance she will move to Vancouver, Canada.
The shock of Trump’s win must still be settling in because she hasn’t updated her Twitter or Instagram, although people have taken to the social media sites to offer to help her pack.
Not so much a celebrity, but famous nonetheless. Despite the fact that even Ginsburg’s fans criticized her for her public comments against Trump as highly inappropriate for a sitting justice, the “notorious RBG” told The New York Times, “I can’t imagine what this place would be ― I can’t imagine what the country would be ― with Donald Trump as our president. For the country, it could be four years. For the court, it could be ― I don’t even want to contemplate that,” adding she would move to New Zealand if Trump won.
No word on that, but WAPO has condemned her for making such comments and then failing to recuse herself on election-related litigation when she so clearly had a vested stake in Trump losing.
No matter. As our next president, Trump will likely be naming Ginsburg’s replacement.
After accusing Trump of running a “hate-filled campaign,” Jackson straight up told Jimmy Kimmel in a skit, “If that motherf*cker becomes president, I’m moving my black ass to South Africa.”
South Africa, it has been noted, is the whitest part of Africa.
No word yet on Jackson if he’s got his plane ticket handy, but apparently people are excitedly welcoming him to “the Mother Land” when he does.
11. Stephen King
The horror novelist, who referred to Trump as “Trumpie,” claimed “A Trump presidency scares me more than anything else. I’m terrified that he’ll become president.”
He has yet to respond to the “terror” on social media. Too soon?
The Cosby turned Disney actress claimed she already had tickets in hand for her and her entire family to move to Canada. Tuesday she retweeted this:

So far she may be the only one making good on her promise to vacate the country.
As previously reported, Amy Schumer sure the hell didn’t.
