These celebrities said they'd leave the US if Trump won. But will they actually emigrate?

Following the surprising, emotional conclusion to the presidential election, it's safe to say that at least half of America has all the feels. But is that sadness, fear, and apprehension enough to drive U.S. citizens out of the country? 

Prior to Election Day, some notable celebrities pledged to move to more progressive destinations if Donald Trump won. But now that it's actually happened, will any of them actually do what they said they'd do? And just how easy is it to move to another country?

Miley Cyrus didn't specify where she'd go, but she feels like the party in the USA is over.

Spain and Canada

Amy Schumer told "BBC Newsnight" that she would head to Spain in the case of a Trump win. In addition to needing to learn Spanish, Schumer will also need to obtain a visa. Luckily, the wikiHow guide on moving to Spain is full of helpful information.

Chelsea Handler also mentioned Spain. "I did buy a house in another country just in case," she said on “Live with Kelly and Michael.” But she also contemplated moving to Canada in an episode of "Chelsea" on Netflix. And speaking of Canada...

I know a lovely place in Vancouver, and I can get my work done from there.
Lena Dunham

During the Matrix Awards in April, Lena Dunham said that she "really will" move to Canada if Trump wins. "I love Canada," she told the audience. The actress was a vocal Clinton supporter throughout the election.

On "Fox and Friends," Trump responded to Dunham's vow with insults, calling her a "B-actor" with "no mojo."

Crashing Canada's website

Possibly joining Dunham in Canada? Raven-SymonéChloë Sevigny, Bryan Cranston, Stephen KingNeve CampbellKeegan-Michael Key, and Ne-Yo.

While Campbell is actually Canadian, the rest might need to brush up on the immigration process. And they aren't alone -- even as the election began swinging Trump's direction, Canada's immigration website crashed due to heavy traffic. The site now loads very slowly, so the first prerequisite to obtaining Canadian citizenship is patience.

How about a 'mental hospital'?

You might be able to find Samuel L. Jackson in South Africa, Natasha Lyonne in a "mental hospital," Ruth Bader Ginsburg in New Zealand and George Lopez in Mexico. Barbra Streisand is looking at both Canada and Australia as possibilities.

Like Cyrus, Amber Rose didn't disclose her ideal country, only her desire to flee if Trump won. She told US Weekly: "I can't even think about it! I'm moving, I'm out! I can't. And I am taking my son with me! I would be devastated, to be honest with you!"

Meanwhile, Cher  has set her sights on an even further destination: Jupiter. 

Some people, including notorious troll Martin Shkreli, are egging on those who made vows.
