PRANKSTER TONY KENNON.
Butthurt liberals don’t get that the GoFundMe is a joke.
An Alabama mayor has a message for celebrities who pledged to leave the U.S. if Donald Trump was elected president: Don’t let the screen door hit you on the way out.
Orange Beach Mayor Tony Kennon posted a message on his Facebook page announcing the creation of a GoFundMe page to raise money to purchase bus tickets for “celebrities, athletes and other high-minded elitists who are traumatized by the new Trump era.”
The tickets will take the protesting celebrities to Tijuana, Mexico, and not Canada, a destination mentioned by many, Kennon said. Even before the election, celebrities ranging from Miley Cyrus and Cher to Barbra Streisand and director Spike Lee said they’d exit the US if the Republican nominee defeated Hillary Clinton.
Kennon’s GoFundMe page is appropriately titled “Don’t Let the Screen Door Hit You.” Fourteen donors have contributed $230 – a far cry from Kennon’s $10 million goal – in the past two days.
“Let us not forget those who promised to leave the country if Trump won,” Kennon said on his Facebook page. “For us loving and sensitive Trump supporters, it is imperative that we help those downtrodden, multi-millionaire Hillary supporters find a better quality of life in Mexico or any other third world country for that matter and in the process help them gain a little perspective of reality instead of their worthless hyperbole.”
While some people are appreciative of Kennon’s efforts – “please allow some help to go to the poor souls at Berkeley and elsewhere who never worked a day in their life and want to relocate,” one $10 donor said – others aren’t laughing.
“New Movement. #Boycott Orange Beach,” a GoFundMe commenter said.
