Darn! Lena Dunham Not Going Anywhere
Last April at the Matrix Awards, part-time actor, full-time celebrity Lena Dunham said that she was absolutely serious about moving to Canada if Donald Trump won the presidency. "I know a lot of people have been threatening to do this, but I really will. I know a lovely place in Vancouver,” she told award ceremony host Andy Cohen.
Milo Yiannopoulos announced Wednesday that he had asked his travel agent to arrange a first-class ticket to Canada for Ms. Dunham. So with everything in place and the stars aligned, you would think Dunham would jump at the chance to make good on her pledge.
Add Lena Dunham to the list of anti-Trump celebrities who won’t be moving to Canada after all.
Miss Dunham, star of the HBO comedy series “Girls,” took to Instagram to slam those calling for her to make good on her promise to leave the country if Republican Donald Trump won the presidency.
“And for those demanding I move to Canada based on something I said when this man seemed like a steak salesman with a long shot at the presidency: stay busy reveling in your new regime,” she said in a Friday post.
“I will go many places during my lifetime, surrounded by kindreds on a mission to spread justice and light. I can’t wait for all of this, and for the change to come, as we use what we’ve been given to protect those who can’t protect themselves,” she added. “What are you living for?”
So basically the reason she's not leaving is that when she said she was, Trump didn't have a chance to win -- except he did win and now she's welshing on her word.
Why should it matter if Trump had no chance to win when she made the pledge? You're either going to go or not -- electoral chances shouldn't play any part in her decision.
