Sorry, Canada; Raven-Symonè is your problem now.
During Thursday’s episode of ABC’s daytime talk-fest “The View,” Raven-Symonè made a bold declaration — and a promise that we will hold her to.
“My confession for this election is if any Republican gets nominated I’m gonna move to Canada with my entire family,” she asserted.
Asked if she was joking, Raven-Symone declared, “I already have my ticket. I literally bought my ticket, I swear.”
And since it’s virtually assured that there will be a Republican nominee in this election, can we help you pack your bags, dear?
Elsewhere during the episode, Raven-Symone, Whoopi Goldberg and the crew discussed a recent poll that found 20 percent of Trump supporters don’t approve of the Emancipation Proclamation, the executive order signed by Abraham Lincoln which freed slaves in 10 states.
“How do they feel about feeding Christians to the lions?” Joy Behar quipped.
While insisting that she didn’t agree with that opinion, Candace Cameron Bure suggested that the poll was “tricky,” as the Emancipation Proclamation question was buried in a line of queries about presidents taking executive actions. However, Behar would have none of it.
“We fought a war over that. The North won the war. So what is this executive action?” Behar offered. “It was also a war to eliminate slavery. So these people don’t know what they’re talking about.”
“It’s meaningful,” Goldberg said of the poll result. “And yesterday he talked about how glad he was to talk to the under-educated folks. It kind of bothers me that this is what he’s saying is a good thing.”
