Chelsea Handler has plans to relocate if Donald Trump gets elected and becomes President. The comedian, along with a growing group of celebrities such as Lena Dunham, recently announced her plans to exit the United States if Trump wins, noted the Hollywood Reporter.
With a new late night series on Netflix that just debuted Wednesday, Chelsea previously revealed that she has a backup plan for where she’ll live, which is a home in Spain. In case the election results don’t go the way she wants when it comes to who will move into the White House, Handler plans for a smooth getaway.
Talking on Live With Kelly and Michael, the woman known for her wicked sense of humor emphasized that in this case, she’s not joking.
“I did buy a house in another country just in case, so all of these people that threaten to leave the country and then don’t, I will leave the country,” stated Chelsea.
Handler also mocked the possibility that Trump could become president.
“After Barack Obama, I’m just going to blow my head up,” joked Chelsea about the potential for Trump to rule the country.
“Don’t do anything drastic,” warned Kelly Ripa.
Offering some insights into why she feels that Donald is dangerous, Handler described meeting him in person, admitting that she was nearly charmed by his presence.
“I met him once. He came up to me at a restaurant in Los Angeles,” she recalled. “And he’s very tall and I like tall men and I remember going, ‘You’re not nearly as disgusting as I thought you were.’ I almost was charmed. Almost. So he’s dangerous.”
But Chelsea contends that she believes Trump himself envisioned his campaign achieving the success that he has, opining that Donald had thought he would get more attention, not actually get to the point of a possible victory.
“I don’t think he was really ready to take the job. He just loves attention and he loves to talk about himself. Now I think he’s thinking ‘oh, whoa, we better get this under control.’…he can’t possibly be really trying to be elected to become president. That doesn’t make any sense.”
Handler also has provided her views on a Trump presidency on Instagram, pointed out People.
“Sometimes we swim above water and somethings we swim on the sea floor. I’ll meet you wherever you are,” wrote Chelsea for the caption of a photo showing herself topless.
“Trump Is A Butt Hole” was on her back.
In addition to Handler, some celebrities have been specific about why they are against Donald, while others have focused on making it clear that they dislike Trump, according to AM New York.
J.K. Rowling, the author of Harry Potter, feels that Trump is worse than Voldemort. Referring to an article contrasting Donald with her villainous character, she disagrees.
“Voldemort was nowhere near as bad,” proclaimed Rowling.
Actress Jennifer Lawrence offered up a scary prediction.
“If Donald Trump is president of the United States, it will be the end of the world,” said Lawrence.
Miley Cyrus is siding with those who plan to move out of the country if Trump is elected, with the hashtag #aintapartyindausaanymo (aint a party in da usa anymo), while Bette Midler tweeted a meme and a quote.

When Trump’s son, Donald Trump Jr. turned to Twitter to comment on the arguments between protesters and Trump supporters in Chicago, singer and songwriter John Legend responded by labeling Trump a “racist” in his own tweet.
“Ha 5 students when asked why they were protesting couldn’t even answer. The participation medal/micro aggression generation is pretty sad!” posted Trump Jr.
“.@DonaldJTrumpJr I think they were protesting your racist father. This isn’t complicated,” contended Legend.
The songwriter took the Twitter debate a step further.
“This is not controversial. This is not news. The sky is blue.”
Comedian Sarah Silverman and actor Jack Black also have spoken out against Trump, while actress Susan Sarandon described Donald as comparative to a “drunk uncle at a wedding.”
While Chelsea is headed to Spain if Trump wins, Cher is going a much longer distance. Referring to him as a “bigot,” Cher also announced that she would move to Jupiter if he got elected.
Rosie O’Donnell has termed Trump’s campaign a “nightmare.”
