Musician John Legend and his ex-model wife Chrissy Teigen have announced a new spin to the celebrity class vow from 2016 to leave America if Donald Trump won. Now, Legend has upped the ante by saying all Americans must consider leaving the United States if Trump wins in 2020. Well, that’s when they got torched by patriotic Americans. You’ll love this.

It looks like singer John Legend and his wife Chrissy Teigen got their feelings hurt by President Donald Trump, and now they are urging Americans to leave the United States if he wins re-election.

Legend and his wife Chrissy Teigen recently gave an interview to Cosmopolitan Magazine to air their personal grievances against Trump which date to 2019.

That’s when the leftwing singer refused to credit the president for passing a major criminal justice reform bill that even former Obama administration official Van Jones praised.

The president made clear in 2019 what he thought about the Trump-hating couple’s antics:

“A man named @VanJones68, and many others, were profusely grateful (at that time!). I SIGNED IT INTO LAW, no one else did, & Republicans deserve much credit. But now that it is passed, people that had virtually nothing to do with it are taking the praise.”

“Guys like boring musician @johnlegend, and his filthy-mouthed wife, are talking now about how great it is – but I didn’t see them around when we needed help getting it passed. Anchor@LesterHoltNBC doesn’t even bring up the subject of President Trump or the Republicans when talking about.”

Teigen had previously stated she had been a Trump-hater “for years” saying she would engage the billionaire businessman on Twitter with comments like: “You’re the f*cking worst.”

However, when Trump set the record straight with those above tweets, the former model proved the president right about her “filthy-mouth” by posting: “lol what a p*ssy ass b*tch. tagged everyone but me. an honor, mister president.”

That brings us to John Legend’s latest accusations against Trump.

 “At some point, if that project [to destroy democracy] was to be in any way successful, you’d have to think about going somewhere that is a true democracy, that has respect for the rule of law and human rights,” Legend said this month in an interview with Cosmopolitan. 

“If America chooses to be that place then people will have to start thinking about going somewhere else. It is truly disturbing and concerning,” he added. “I’m not nervous. I strongly believe America is exhausted from three and a half years of Donald Trump. Exhausted from the daily efforts to destroy democracy and the free press.”

Americans blasted the leftwing couple’s idea of leaving America if Trump wins.

“What did I tell you! After he just moved into his multi-million Beverly Hills digs. Who gets your house, Johnny?” tweeted Bo Snerdly, who is a producer for Rush Limbaugh’s radio show.

“Bye Felisha- I’m still waiting for you a**holes to leave from 2016!” tweeted Twitter user “Karli.”

“These pronouncements are always so disappointing because none of them ever actually leave,” tweeted Emily Zanotti, a reporter for the Daily Wire. 

“God… PLEASE DO LEAVE! I love my freedom and if you hate it just f*cking go. PLEASE!” tweeted “Xel’crin.”

“Name three celebs that promised, and delivered on their promise, to leave the U.S. after November 2016 because of the election,” tweeted Chris Woodward.

“Promises, promises. Get a headstart and just leave now,” tweeted Howie Wodes.

John Legend and Chrissy Teigen are what you call low information voters. 

This couple has gobbled up every leftwing conspiracy against the president and regurgitated it to their massive followings on social media. That’s what makes them dangerous. Between the two of them, they have 26 million followers on Twitter alone.

Maybe someone should tell John Legend that America is not a democracy, but a Republic. In fact, Trump is president precisely because we are a Republic that values individual’s rights over mob rule. The Electoral College is an example of that.

Sure, many times the popular vote matches the winner of the Electoral College. However, if America were a direct democracy, the “mob” on the West and East Coast would be deciding who the president is every single election leaving out what we call “flyover country” in the Mid-West from having a say at all.

No one believes Legend and his foul mouth wife will leave the United States. They are once again just grandstanding hoping to sway other low information voters just like them.
