Remember back in 2015 when every week a new celebrity from Hollywood or the sports world threatened to pack their luxurious bags and leave the United States should then-candidate Donald Trump beat Hillary Clinton and become president?
Also, remember how literally not a single one of those liberal elitists made good on their offer to take up residence in a foreign country?
According to The New York Post, one cowboy-hat wearing Ohio sheriff decided to reach out to those celebrities, along with the latest round of Hollywood elites who’ve issued the same threat should Trump manage to beat Joe Biden and win a second term in the White House.
Butler County Sheriff Richard “Rick” Jones went viral this week after posting a video to his Facebook page in which he offered to help the celebrities — even by pitching in a few bucks to fund a one-way flight out of the United States — pack their stuff and get out.
You can watch Jones make his offer in the video below:
“Good for you. I hope you do leave and if there’s anyway I can help, I’m not a rich person, but I would be willing to throw in $10 to a special fund to help get you a flight or whatever it takes — a ship ride to whatever country of your choice — and maybe you can make a better life there,” Jones said.
He warned the celebs that there’s only one stipulation that they must abide by if they do choose to exit the very country that provided them their status of great fortune and fame.
“The rule is you can’t come back. You have to stay there and make a better life for yourself,” Jones added.
So, why did this otherwise no-nonsense sheriff feel compelled to give the anti-Trump elitist left a little nudge? Jones said that those kind of people typically aren’t the biggest fans of law enforcement. That was especially proven true over the summer when a long list of celebrities donated to various “bail-out” funds intended to help release violent BLM demonstrators from jail.
“These are mostly the same people who don’t like police, don’t like first responders, so I feel obligated to make a response to that,” Jones said.
The good sheriff made clear that his stance was not presidential or even political, rather, it was based on the fact that he loves his country, offering sage advice to spoiled, liberal brat celebrities who can’t appreciate what this country has done for them.
“I love my country,” he said. “Those of you who don’t like it — leave.”
I’d be shocked if any America-hating Hollywood types will take up the sheriff on his generous offer, but after Trump wins in a landslide victory on November 3, I can only cross my fingers with the hopes that some of them follow through on their promise.
