Playing Amy Schumer and Whoopi Goldberg Insist They're Staying in the US Despite Donald Trump Winning Election

Amy Schumer and Whoopi Goldberg might not be thrilled that Donald Trump was elected president over Hillary Clinton, but they're not packing up and shipping out just yet.

On Wednesday, Schumer shared a lengthy Instagram post -- which included a fake quote from Trump -- insisting that she would not moving out of the U.S. "First of all, the interview where I said I would move was in London and was said in jest," she wrote. "Anyone saying pack your bags is just as disgusting as anyone who voted for this racist, homophobic, openly disrespectful, woman abuser."

Schumer followed up that post with a more positive message that included a photo of a dog sitting on a horse. "Tomorrow we get back in the mother f**king saddle," the comedian captioned the pic. "Love to everyone hurting. #riseup #stillwithher"

Goldberg also felt misunderstood, and told viewers of The View on Thursday that she had been "incorrectly lumped in" with celebrities who had claimed they would leave if Trump was elected. "A lot of folks have said they were leaving over the course of these last couple of years if Trump got elected, and once again people assumed that’s what I did," she explained.

Goldberg said the misconception came from comments she made on a prior show. "The minute you start pointing and saying that person is a rapist and a murderer, it pisses me off because I’ve been part of that when they just use a blanket statement to talk about black people or when they use a blanket statement to talk about white people or women or any other group," the co-host said at the time. "I don’t think that’s America. I don’t want it to be America. Maybe it’s time for me to move.”

After reading the transcript, Goldberg further insisted that she was staying in the country. "I’m sorry to disillusion you, but I’m not leaving the country that I was born and raised in,” Goldberg continued. “My family spent years trying to get the vote and trying to do all the things that we as Americans are allowed to do. We’re allowed to protest. We’re allowed to stand up and say we disagree. You don’t get to tell me that I’m going. You don’t get to make that decision for me. I’m staying.”

A slew of celebrities have spoken out about Trump becoming president-elect, as well as the protests that followed in several cities on Wednesday night. Mark Ruffalo and Saturday Night Live alum Taran Killam even participated in the protest held on the streets of New York City.
