The list of celebrities who threatened to leave the country if Donald Trump was elected president was quite long, but the actual number of celebrities following through on their word is remarkably shorter. That’s too bad, but at least one star has promised to follow through on his promise — and we couldn’t happier.
TMZ reporters caught up with the comedian George Lopez, who mentioned he was “already in escrow,” hinting that he was working on leaving the country.
When asked if he was willing to give Trump a chance, he said, “I’ll give him a chance to suck my a**.”
“Listen, man, I’m in escrow so don’t worry about my residential status,” the comedian said, “and I’m not going to tell you where I’m going to go because it will drive up real estate prices ’cause by the end of the year no one’s gonna wanna be here.”
Watch his reaction blow, but be aware it is filled with graphic language.
This is good news because the fewer people we have like Lopez in the country, the better off our country will be.
Lopez attacked Trump during his campaign with some very inflammatory posts to social media.

He even poked fun at Melania Trump.

Now the joke’s on him, and it’s time for him to leave.
It’s time celebrities wake up and realize that most thinking Americans don’t care what they think — especially about politics. Some celebrities like to go around believing they are more enlightened than everyone else, but that notion exists only in their heads.
