Here is the text:
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.
