The celebrities who promised us they'd leave the country if Trump won have changed their minds [sic] and now vow to stay so they can help us see the error of our ways. Please, please don't stay on my account.
The comedian [Chelsea] Handler, who said in May that she had bought a house “in another country just in case,” reversed course Thursday, explaining that she plans to stick around for the good of the nation.
“Yesterday my staff reminded me that voices and platforms like mine are needed more than ever; leaving the country is quitting #keepfightin,” said Ms. Handler on Twitter.
In an interview six months ago on “Live with Kelly and Michael,” however, Ms. Handler said, “So all these people that threaten to leave the country and then don’t—I really will leave that country.”
Meanwhile, the comedian Schumer dismissed Tuesday her pre-election comment on BBC about moving to Europe, saying it was made “in jest,” and blasted those calling for her to take a hike.
There's some small irony in being lectured on white privilege and oppression of women by a white female entertainer who refers to "my staff", but I'll let that pass, if she'll just do her hectoring from outside our borders.
