“It’s that time of election year again,” wrote Butler County Sheriff Richard Jones on his office’s official Facebook account. “Celebrities threatening to leave the United States if the President is re-elected. This happened in 2016 and it is believed not one celebrity left then and it appears the same threats are being made this election year.”
According to the statement, the Ohio sheriff would “like to extend an invitation to put money towards a one-way ticket for any celebrity that would like to leave the country this time around if President Trump is re-elected.”

“Hell, I’ll even help them pack,” he also added.
Jones then reiterated his remarks in a live video.
“They’re going to leave this country, they’re embarrassed for their country, they’re ashamed of their country, and I thought that I would address those issues today, as your sheriff. These are mostly the same people who don’t like police, that don’t like first responders. I hope you do leave,” Jones also mentioned.
“If there’s any way that I can help, I’m not a rich person, but I would be willing to throw in $10 to help get you a flight or whatever it takes – a ship ride – to whatever country of your choice, and maybe you can make a better life there in that country.”
