Amy Schumer says vow to leave country was a joke

Comedian Amy Schumer says she was joking when she said she would move to London if Donald Trump was elected president.

“The interview where I said I would move was in London and was said in jest,” Schumer said in the caption of an Instagram post, which showed a picture of Trump and a debunked quote of the president-elect calling Republicans the “dumbest group of voters in the country.”

“Not that anyone needs more than a headline to count something as official news. Anyone saying pack your bags is just as disgusting as anyone who voted for this racist homophobic openly disrespectful woman abuser.”

First of all the interview where I said I would move was in London and was said in jest. Not that anyone needs more than a headline to count something as official news. Anyone saying pack your bags is just as disgusting as anyone who voted for this racist homophobic openly disrespectful woman abuser. Like the rest of us I am grieving today. My heart is in a million pieces. My heart breaks for my niece and my friends who are pregnant bringing children into the world right now. Like everyone else I am horrified that people believed these bumper sticker slogans filled with hate he spewed. People who voted for him you are weak. You are not just misinformed. You didn't even attempt information. You say lock her up and you know something about the word email but what was in the emails? You have no clue. Well I'll tell you if you were able to read this far through the holes in your sheet. They said nothing incriminating. Nothing. She dedicated her entire life to public service and got our children Heath care and education without discrimination. he didn't pay his workers. Started a fake college. Ripped people off. Never paid his taxes and sexually assaulted women and on and on She would have taken care of us. I personally would have had to pay higher taxes. All the celebrities backing her would have. People asked how much I was paid to stand with her. Nothing. None of us were paid a dollar. We would have had to pay a lot more because we are fortunate enough to make a high income. But we all wanted to do it to take care of the people in need. She was fighting to take care of you kicking and screaming babies. Yelling about emails you know nothing about and not liking her clothes or her hair she wanted to protect you even you. Well you've gotten what you asked for and now you can watch the sky open up. Literally. I am furious. I cry for her and for all the smart people I love who know what's right and I cry for you people who fell for shiny hats and reality catch phrases. She would have protected you. Today we grieve tomorrow we begin again. Yes this quote is fake but it doesn't matter

{mosads}Schumer, a supporter of Democrat Hillary Clinton, wrote of how upset she was about Trump being elected to the White House. She said she is grieving and that her heart is “in a million pieces.”

“Like everyone else I am horrified that people believed these bumper sticker slogans filled with hate he spewed,” she said.

“People who voted for him you are weak. You are not just misinformed. You didn’t even attempt information.”

Schumer slammed those Trump supporters who shouted “lock her up” at the candidate’s rallies — referring to Clinton — saying they didn’t know anything about what Clinton’s emails contained.

“You have no clue. Well I’ll tell you if you were able to read this far through the holes in your sheet,” she said.

“They said nothing incriminating. Nothing.”

Schumer commended the Democratic nominee for dedicating her life to public service and helping children. She strongly rebuked Trump, saying he didn’t pay his workers, started a fake college, didn’t pay his taxes and sexually assaulted women.

“She would have taken care of us. I personally would have had to pay higher taxes. All the celebrities backing her would have,” she said.

People asked her how much she was paid to stand with Clinton, Schumer said.

“Nothing. None of us were paid a dollar. We would have had to pay a lot more because we are fortunate enough to make a high income. But we all wanted to do it to take care of the people in need,” she said.

“She was fighting to take care of you kicking and screaming babies. Yelling about emails you know nothing about and not liking her clothes or her hair she wanted to protect you even you.”

“I cry for her and for all the smart people I love who know what’s right and I cry for you people who fell for shiny hats and reality catch phrases,” she said.

“She would have protected you. Today we grieve tomorrow we begin again. Yes this quote is fake but it doesn’t matter.”

Before the election, several celebrities vowed to leave the country if Trump was elected.
