That noted political expert, Robin Leach, visited Fox News to opine on that important political topic: British actress Sienna Miller's threat to leave the country if Donald Trump wins election.
In case you’re wondering, Variety reported the following comments from Miller recently:
“I don’t know if I can stay if it goes the wrong way, so I’m really hoping that Hillary comes through,” she said.
Miller said that is slowly dawned on her that Trump’s candidacy was legitimate, and that her fears grew as the billionaire developer and former reality TV star’s campaign gathered momentum.
“It was really funny initially until I realized it wasn’t a joke,” said Miller. “I’m really horrified. I’ve never been here for an election. I’ve never felt as invested in the outcome as I do now.”
Fox News deemed that significant enough to consult Leach on the matter. He said, “I’d give her the airfare. I’d buy her a ticket.”
Leach called all the celebrities who have said such things “hypocrites.” He explained, “They take all of our money, and then they bad mouth the country.”
Leach then seemed to say he wasn’t a fan of either presidential candidate. “It’s come down to two people who, literally, you wouldn’t vote for either.” He said he was in Italy for the summer “and that’s all people could say was, what has happened to America?”
“Why can’t we produce legitimate, honest statespeople who can help take not only America out of the troubles it has but also lead the world out of the mess we’re in?” Leach asked.
But Leach also defended Trump from the multiple accusations of sexual assault that have come out lately.
LEACH: I’ve known Donald Trump for many years since the 1980’s when he first surfaced. All of this stuff is just a pack of lies. I’ve been out with him socially. He never, ever - you could talk to his wives. There’s not the slightest bit of impropriety. When I was running Lifestyles, my staff of 19 field producers, I think 18 of them were women. Many of whom interacted with him on interviews and scouting locations and shooting B-roll in different places. Nobody, nobody, not one person ever came back and said Donald Trump was a bad boy.”
I don’t believe any of it. Dirty Chicago politics at its finest. You can buy certain kind of people to make the most outrageous claims in the world, and it’s terrible that the future of America and the future of the world has come down to one team slugfesting with slime, lies, to justify him not getting elected.
But there has been a barrage of different women coming forward. Watch ABC News’ October 14 report on the subject and compare and contrast it with this Your World discussion on October 18, 2016.
I visited Costa Rica in 2014. Fairly impressed and reasonably affordable I understand for retirees. My [now retired] boss spends a lot of time there and is seriously thinking of retiring there. However, my significant other is thinking eastern Gulf Coast so I’m not sure I can convince her of following me to South America though we visited it together and she really loved it. She’s more into Italy and probably will spend many months there living with a relative when she retires (leaving me working here – the nerve!!! ;^0 ).
The good news it doesn’t look like Trump will win so I won’t have to escape America. ;^)
‘Our’ money, Robin???
You are one very confused and desperate creature.
The core practical problem? Despite all the Fox News right-wing vomit of Canadians flooding into America to escape socialized medicine, the real truth is so many Americans have flooded into Canada to become citizens the property values in Victoria are sky high (according to a Canadian I talked to while visiting there) and the Canadian government has set a very high bar for Americans to become citizens. They’ve radically changed their website since I last visited but it appears based on my personal profile I’d have to invest $2,000,000 in Canada to retire there. Figure the odds, folks!
Should I start a GoFundMe request? ;^)
I’ve also briefly investigated retiring to Italy’s east coast or Costa Rica’s west cost but I wouldn’t change my citizenship. Which begs the question how would I explain to the natives there I’m an American in an era of Trump neo-Nazi rule? Please, Canada, take me! ;^)
Do I hate America? Hardly. Would neo-Nazi Trump becoming President make me thoroughly embarrassed of America and being an American? Most definitely.
If you’ve read my long spew, you’re probably wondering why I’m not pointing out the most obvious fallacy of Lynch’s silly editorial. So here it comes. Celebrities criticizing America and talking leaving over Trump are to be smeared. Fox News’ daily vomit criticizing an America with any Democrats in positions of political power is flag-waving patriotism. Fair and balanced!
