Is Stephen Baldwin the First Actor to Threaten to Leave the Country If Obama Wins?


In the above clip, Stephen Baldwin announces that if Barack Obama is elected president, he will leave the country. The boast came in response to Fox News' Laura Ingraham's comment that Baldwin's brother Alec had long ago promised to flee the country rather than deal with Republicans in power.

"I just want to say right now that it's official, if Barack gets nominated, I'll be moving out of the country," he joked, crossing his fingers. (We assume by "nominated," he means "gets elected.") "Now watch all the media have fun with that!" They are having fun already! The Huffington Post and the Observer are already reporting his jest in earnest. Hey — joke or not, it's good publicity for his friend Laura Ingraham's new FNC show!
