Another electoral cycle. Another round of US citizens reflects on movements to other countries if the result does not move in their direction.
This time, it's entertainment legend Barbra Streisand, who told the New York Times that he has been fighting to uproot if Democrats do not gain control of the House on Tuesday.
"I've been thinking, do I want to move to Canada? I do not know," she told Maggie Haberman of the Times. "I am very sad about what is happening to our country, it is getting fatter. [President Trump] He said now, and now I have to go eat pancakes, and the pancakes get fat. "
Streisand, who lives in California, told the newspaper he could not think of anything positive that Trump has done and that the president "is trying to reverse the reality."
"The truth has always worked for me, so seeing the contaminated truth every day is very, very painful for me," he added. "I can only do what I can do."
Streisand has been promoting his next album, "Walls," which he said was an outlet through which he could channel his frustration and anger toward Trump.
His first single, titled "Do not lie to me," does not mention Trump explicitly, but Streisand has said that it is essentially his way of speaking directly with the president:
Why can not you tell me the truth?
Difficult to believe the things you say
Why can not you feel the tears I cry today?
Today I cried, I cried today
How do you win if we all lose?
Change the facts to justify.
Your lips move but your words get in the way.
On the road, on the road
Celebrities and other prominent figures who threaten to move to a foreign country before (and after) an election have become so common that they are almost a part of the American political cycle. In 2016, many of those people were Democrats, including Lena Dunham, Snoop Dogg, Chelsea Handler, Bryan Cranston, Neve Campbell and, yes, Streisand, who pledged to leave the United States if Trump won, according to The Guardian.
However, as the newspaper pointed out, all of them, including Streisand, have remained silent despite Trump's presidency, for now.
"Walls" will premiere on Friday.
