Scott Baio Has A Message For Celebs Crying Over The Election: ‘Sorry You Have To Move’ Now
Scott Baio gave celebrities like Lena Dunham and others who are crying over the election advice on moving to Canada and even suggested Mexico might be a better option for their new home.
On Tuesday, the 56-year-old actor held a Facebook Live event on his page to talk about the stunning upset by Donald Trump but promised that he wasn’t going to gloat. Wearing a Canada t-shirt, the actor told those in Hollywood who are upset about Hillary Clinton getting beat where they can pick up a similar shirt.

“I’m wearing my Canada shirt for all the celebrities that are moving to Canada, in honor of you guys,” Baio said. “And, by the way, what’s wrong with Mexico? The weather’s nicer in Mexico. They have beaches and stuff. Why don’t you guys go there? But, anyway, this is for Lena. Lena, goodbye. Goodbye. Sorry you have to move to Canada.” (RELATED: Scott Baio Claims His Starbucks Barista Refused To Say Donald Trump’s Name)
The actor also had advice for those have taken to the streets to protest the election results to simply “suck it up.”
“We, conservatives and Republicans, sucked it up, we took it on the chin, we ate it” when Obama won the presidency, Baio said. “We didn’t have cry-ins, we didn’t need dogs and puppies to hold, we didn’t need a safety-pin on somebody’s shirt to show they were a safe person. We didn’t need any of that.”
“If this were the other way around … if Hillary had won….and these were tea party people … you’d have been ripping them,” he added. “Ripping Donald Trump. You are hypocrites. You lost, we won.”
Baio was one of the few supporters from Hollywood that was willing to speak out in favor of Trump during the election. He was very ardent in his belief that Trump would win the election.
“I still think he’s going to win,” Baio told the Hollywood Reporter before the election. “I know he’s way ahead with Independents. I think the silent majority is about done with this crap.”
