During the presidential campaign, there was no shortage of liberal celebrities who threatened to leave the United States and move to Canada should Donald Trump win. Unfortunately, that promise of a mass exodus never happened as celebrities are more about the hype than the point and would never want to give up what they have going here in America to become all but forgotten. However, that threat didn’t just resurface again this week, one Hollywood star might actually make good on it and all it took was the repeal of the American Health Care Act as the final straw.
The country could become a better place after Friday morning when the announcement that one particular singer is over the edge irate about the passing of this recent healthcare bill. It’s only a matter of time now before she packs up her belongings and hightails it to the land of socialized medicine in Canada as she previously promised to do. Of course, her concern is that people are going to die here in America now that the House passed a revised health care bill, but not her since she has healthcare, She says that she’s just worried for others who have a condition she has. It doesn’t matter that there are still several hurdles to jump if and when “Trumpcare” becomes a reality, but this celebrity has had it with the Republican-run nation.
Singer Cher hasn’t been silent about her hate for Trump and exaggerated fears for our country under his leadership and now she’s using her asthma as ammunition. Who knew such a windbag like her who wastes her breath making so many ridiculous points suffered from a condition that makes her short on air…but I digress.
Cher took to Twitter on Friday morning to basically say her farewells to the country that made her famous and “blast AHCA saying its passage threatens to cut funding to treat her asthma,” according to Fox News.
Speaking in a mix of all capital letters and emojis, the 70-year-old singer sent out a fury of Tweets expressing her frustration with healthcare that doesn’t directly affect her, since she has other coverage. She said that because Trumpcare doesn’t help people with asthma or battered women, she’s worried about what’s going to happen to everyone in the U.S. Hopefully, this means she finds refuge in Canada as she said she would if he were elected. Now he is our president and according to her, her worst nightmares of his leadership seem to be coming true.

It’s really hard to hear millionaire celebrities complain about their grievances with a healthcare bill that has no affect on them. Cher isn’t the only one, as Trump-hater Jimmy Kimmel, with a net worth of $35 million, has plenty to say in support of socialized medicine as well.
Cher could really save herself a lot of angst and fake fear for others, who she uses and her pawns to make a point, by actually moving to Canada like she promised. According to her, she could breath easier up there knowing there’s not someone like Trump in charge. Plus, they already have socialized medicine for the common people so she would find it really comforting to not have to worry about other people’s asthma.
She shouldn’t have gotten our hopes up that she was going to move, only to decide to stay here and incessantly complain about everything Trump and his administration do. As long as liberals like Cher are going to have bleeding hearts for people, it should be directed at the hardworking Middle Class who suffered the most under Obamacare. Where was her outrage then? It’s no surprise that she saved her tirade for now since it was Trump who made this change and not Obama who literally forced his plan down Americans’ throats and penalized them when they choked.
With her resources and reach she could really benefit other people but only uses it to deepen the divide in the country. If Cher really wants to make a statement, she should actually move like she said she would and hopefully others would follow her lead.
