John Legend is the latest Liberal to get our hopes up.
He says he and people like him may think about leaving the country if Trump wins.
The singer failed to mention that he just purchased a multi-million dollar mansion, but I digress.
From The Hill:
Pop star John Legend says Americans might "have to start thinking about going somewhere else" if President Trump wins reelection.
"At some point, if that project [to destroy democracy] was to be in any way successful, you’d have to think about going somewhere that is a true democracy, that has respect for the rule of law and human rights," the "All of Me" singer said in an interview published this week with Cosmopolitan UK.
"If America chooses to be that place then people will have to start thinking about going somewhere else. It is truly disturbing and concerning," the musician, who's part of the EGOT club, said.
Legend, along with his cookbook-author wife Chrissy Teigen, have been outspoken critics of Trump. Legend, 41, performed at last month's Democratic National Convention and is a vocal supporter of Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden.
Trump has called Legend "boring," and referred to Teigen as the performer's "filthy-mouthed wife."
Legend said he's "not nervous" about the November election because he believes the country is "exhausted" by Trump's presidency and "the daily efforts to destroy democracy and the free press."
But, Legend says, he thinks about leaving the U.S. "every once in awhile" if Trump was to remain in office."
Unforunately these celeb types always get our hopes up.
Many threatened to leave in 2016, yet we still have the pleasure of their company in the good ol' USA.
I would hate to continue seeing him oppressed with millions of dollars and the absolute freedom to do whatever he wants.
Let's cross his fingers that he keeps his promises as well as President Trump on November 4th.
