Haven't we heard it time and time again. Hollywood "Stars" shooting their mouths off about leaving the country if certain politicians win election. We heard it when Bush ran, when Romney ran, and again, believing there was no chance in hell they'd actually have to back it up, laughingly shot their mouths off during the months leading to Trump's victory. What we haven't heard is a whole lot of the wealthy pretenders and self-appointed moral superiors announcing they're following through on their threats. We lookin' at you Whoopie.......
Enter Matt Damon, the anti-gun star of the gun-wheeling Jason Bourne movies who announced that he would "move to Mars" if Trump won. The line was a kinda-sorta word play on his then-recent "The Martian." Now we're learning that while he's not going to mars for real with Elon Musk, he is making good on his promise to leave.
According to Page Six, Damon is so fed up with Trump and people like you, that he's moving to the beautiful gun-less paradise of Australia, where he reportedly has purchased a property in Byron Bay, New South Wales.
“Matt’s telling friends and colleagues in Hollywood that he’s moving the family to Australia” because the activist actor disagrees with Trump’s policies. The president’s frequently butted heads with liberal Hollywood A-listers including Meryl Streep. He’s also telling friends he wants to have a safe place to raise his kids."It also gives Damon a chance to escape the shit pile he stepped in with his not so well received comments about the wave of sexual assault allegations shaking Hollywood.
The hollywood hypocrite is a staunch proponent of gun control and gun bans. As he told an Australian crowd in 2016, he wants to ban all firearms in "one fell swoop"...just like Australia:
“You guys did it here in one fell swoop [in 1996] and I wish that could happen in my country, but it’s such a personal issue for people that we cannot talk about it sensibly,” Mr. Damon said during a promotional engagement in Sydney for the movie "Jason Bourne."We'd like to bid Matt Damon a Fond addio, Au revoir, Tot ziens. We hope he cleans up his Harvey Weinstein mess one day, and we do thank him for sticking to his
