Hasta la vista, Amy?
Comedian Amy Schumer has become the latest star to threaten to leave the country if an election doesn’t go her way, telling the BBC that she plans to “move to Spain or somewhere” if GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump wins the election this year.
Speaking to “BBC Newsnight,” the comedian reflected on her future should a President Trump become a reality in November.
Ask whether her comedy routine will undergo any changes should Trump prevail over her political rival Hillary Clinton, Schumer replied, “My act will change because I’ll need to learn to speak Spanish, because I will move to Spain or somewhere. It’s beyond my comprehension if Trump won. It’s too crazy.”
Schumer also had a mouthful to say about Clinton’s critics, claiming that their dislike of the candidate lacks substance.
“Those people aren’t informed. If you go, ‘Why don’t you like Hillary?’ they’ll go, ‘She lied about her emails; what else is she gonna lie about?’ People get one fact, and that’s what they latch onto about a candidate. “Well, Donald Trump has a fake college. Donald Trump doesn’t pay his workers. He won’t release his taxes.”
“I haven’t had a conversation with anyone who doesn’t like Hillary where they’ve had anything meaningful to say,” the comedian added.
