During a Wednesday taping of ABC network’s “The View,” an audience member interrupted the show to remind everyone that liberal co-host Whoopi Goldberg had claimed that she would be leaving the United States if Trump were elected as President.
Conservative Tribune reminds, “During the 2016 presidential election, Hollywood liberals threw a temper tantrum when they saw Trump’s growing popularity. Several acted out by threatening to leave the United States if Trump was elected. If only we were that lucky. After going on a rant about Trump in January, 2016, long before the billionaire had even won the Republican nomination, Goldberg hinted that the prospect of a Trump presidency was unbearable.”
“Maybe it’s time for me to move, you know,” she said at the time. “I can afford to go.”
Even though Trump did win the election, and wen are now two years into his presidency, Goldberg remains in the country, continuing to rake in the dough.
A Twitter user named Harry Cherry uploaded a video this week that was directed at Goldberg, reminding her of her promise to leave.

“You said that when President Trump was elected, you would move out of the United States,” Cherry stated. “Why haven’t you moved out of the United States?”
The liberal talk show host did not answer, but it’s pretty clear why she hasn’t left the country.
“There are no better alternatives to the United States, which has limitless opportunity, especially in entertainment and entrepreneurship. It’s ironic that liberals are unwilling to permanently live in countries run by liberal policies. Liberals aren’t rushing to live in the socialist utopia of Venezuela. Hollywood liberals wouldn’t even follow through with threats to move to Canada. The wealthy actors probably realized how ludicrous Canada’s taxes are,” Conservative Tribune explains.
On Tuesday, The Guardian released a list of celebrities who had threatened to move to Canada, but never actually follow through.
Rapper Snoop Dogg and actress Barbara Streisand were among those celebrities.
Take a look at a clip from an interview the Australian show “60 Minutes” conducted in August of 2016 with Streisand.
Actress Lena Dunham was also very vocal with her threats to leave the country.
“I know a lot of people have been threatening to do this, but I really will,” Dunham stated, according to a report published by The Hollywood Reporter in April of 2016.
