Remember the months before the 2016 election when dozens of liberal celebrities said they would leave America if Trump won? Of course, none of them followed through and actually did it. Now, Barbara Streisand is making the same empty threat about the midterms.
The Washington Examiner reports:
Barbra Streisand ‘thinking’ about moving to Canada if GOP keeps control of House
Singer-songwriter Barbra Streisand said she’s considering a move to Canada if Democrats are unable to retake control of the House in next week’s midterm elections.
“I want to sleep nights, if we take the House I’ll be able to sleep a little bit better,” she told the New York Times.
If Democrats can’t retake the majority — they need to gain 23 seats to do so — she’s weighing a move.
“I’ve been thinking about, do I want to move to Canada? I don’t know. I’m just so saddened by this thing happening to our country. It’s making me fat,” she said.
People responded on Twitter:
Why not Mexico?

Will she actually do it if Republicans win? Probably not.
