#DontMoveVote: The internet brilliantly explains why you shouldn’t move to Canada and help instead
During the general election, celebrities lined up to talk about how they were ready to move if Donald Trump was elected. Raw Story even outlined some of the places Americans could move if Trump won. But others are urging Never Trumpers to consider this a wake-up call and to reset the clock.
Progressive champion Van Jones explained last night that there were many people going to sleep feeling real fear. Democratic consultants Hilary Rosen and Donny Deutsch also woke up feeling fear. MSNBC’s Tom Brokaw explained that his two teenage granddaughters were worried.
John Hodgman, unleashed a brilliant anti-Trump tweetstorm urging people to “look the bullies in the eye today.” He’s not the only one. Here are some people who have an entirely different message to consider.
The clock starts today. There are 727 days until the 2018 election and 1,091 days until the 2020 election.
Don’t move to Canada. Stay here and fight.
