I have to admit, the following is the only good reason I could give you to vote for the worst presidential candidate of my lifetime. But I just can’t do it. Not even to get rid of Lena Dunham.
Lena Dunham says if Donald Trump wins the presidency she’s moving to Canada…
“I know a lot people have been threatening to do this, but I really will,” she told Andy Cohen at the Matrix Awards Monday,” according to the Hollywood Reporter. “I know a lovely place in Vancouver and I can get my work done from there.”
Why wait? Go. Somehow we’ll muddle through without you.
And because Trump wants us to understand how presidential he’s not, he has to respond to every slight from every mediocre celebrity. Steve Guest reports:
Appearing on Fox News’s “Fox & Friends” on Tuesday, Trump reacted to Dunham’s claim insisting, “Well, she’s a B-actor. You know, she has no — you know, no mojo…”
“Now I have to get elected. Now I have to get elected because I’ll be doing a great service to our country. I have to. Now it’s much more important. In fact, I’ll immediately get off this call and start campaigning right now,” Trump continued.
Of course, none of these dumb celebrities are going anywhere. They say the same thing about the Republican frontrunner every four years, and this time Trump happens to be running as a Republican. If he were running as a Democrat, which would make more sense, they’d find reasons to support him. Just like so many “conservatives” are doing right now. It’s nothing more than tribalism.
And it doesn’t matter anyway, because if Trump gets the nomination, he’s headed for a humiliating loss in November. But at least it gives Steve Doocy something to talk about.
