Offering her powerful voice unfortunately didn’t sway the voting population.

‘Planet’s gone bonkers’

Ahead of the 2016 elections, the Prince of Tides star told the Australian version of 60 Minutes, “He has no facts. I don’t know, I can’t believe it. I’m either coming to your country [Australia], if you’ll let me in, or Canada.”

But Streisand wasn’t the only A-list celebrity who claimed they would leave the U.S. if Trump took office.

The Wrap reports that comedian George Lopez joked that he’d go back to Mexico: “If [Trump] wins, he won’t have to worry about immigration, we’ll all go back.”

Chelsea Handler, who voiced her determination to leave, reversed her decision the day after Trump’s victory over Democrat Hillary Clinton. “Yesterday, my staff reminded me that platforms and voices like mine are needed more than ever; leaving the country is quitting.”

Meanwhile, other celebrities were more creative with their escape plans.

Comedian and talk show host Jon Stewart said, “I would consider getting in a rocket and going to another planet, because clearly this planet’s gone bonkers.”


Post Trump

After spending “four years in a dark hole,” the star of 1983’s Yentl told People of President Joe Biden “the country is certainly headed in the right direction.” The 2021 interview continues, “I love Biden. I love his compassion, his honesty, his integrity, his love of facts, not fiction.”

“Since 2016, we’ve been dragged down into the mud of Trump’s swamp. He has demolished our standing in the world with his laughable boasts and breathtaking ignorance,” she writes in an essay for Variety.

‘Restore nobility of truth’

Now, Streisand is voicing her concerns over the upcoming elections and Trump as the clear Republican frontrunner.

Appearing on an episode of The Late Show, the legendary singer and actor told the host Stephen Colbert, that she won’t tolerate living in a country ruled by the man she earlier called “so stupid” and “so ill-informed.”

“I can’t live in this country if he becomes president,” Streisand said, adding if she relocates, she’ll probably head to England because “I like England.

“Trump is a man who has never once taken responsibility for his own actions, preferring to blame others when he’s at fault. Even impeachment hasn’t humbled him, because thanks to his Republican enablers, he has escaped accountability once again,” she writes.

“We need a new America, without pollution, without obscenities, without insults, without revenge. We need to restore the nobility of truth…and only then will America be great again.”
