Ohio Sheriff Offers to Help Celebrities Leave the U.S. if Trump is Reelected

'Maybe you can make a better life there in that country...'

An Ohio sheriff went viral this week for offering to help Hollywood celebrities leave the U.S. if President Donald Trump is reelected.

Butler County Sheriff Richard Jones posted a video this week responding to celebrities who have threatened to move if Trump wins in November.

Instead of blasting them, Jones offered to pay for their flights out.

“Hell, I’ll even help them pack,” he said.

Jones pointed out that these celebrities are “mostly the same people who don’t like police, that don’t like first responders.”

“I hope you do leave,” he said. “Maybe you can make a better life there in that country.”

The Butler County Sheriff’s Department backed Jones’s statement and reminded residents that celebrities made similar statements in 2016, and “it is believed not one celebrity left then, and it appears the same threats are being made this election year.”

Just last week, Bruce Springsteen vowed to leave the country if Trump is reelected.

“If Trump is re-elected—which he will not be; I’m predicting right now he’s gonna lose—if by some happenstance he should be, I’ll see you on the next plane,” Springsteen said.

Earlier in September, Jones also took a stand against radical Black Lives Matter protesters and warned them that if they came to his county, he would take action.

“I won’t tolerate it, period,” he said. “You shoot at the police, expect us to shoot back. I will not allow my deputies or any law enforcement officer in Butler County to take the abuse I have seen over the past several months. If you come to this county expecting a free pass to harm one of my men or women in uniform keep in mind, nothing in life is free.”
