Alabama Mayor Launches GoFundMe Campaign to Send Anti-Trump Elites to Tijuana
Alabama mayor launches GoFundMe campaign to raise money to purchase bus tickets for Hollywood elites to leave the country as they promised. Mayor Tony Kennon is buying tickets to Tijuana, Mexico:
Our goal is to be able to fund an infinite number of bus tickets to Tijuana, Mexico so they might escape the new Trump era and start a new life for themselves in a third world country so that they might gain a little perspective.

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.
