Madonna Moved Her Family to Portugal to Get Away from Trump—And Also for the Soccer

Madonna’s recent cover for Italian Vogue was shot in her new home country of Portugal. The pop icon revealed that she moved her family out of the country, in part, to get away from the Trump administration.

“I felt like we needed a change, and I wanted to get out of America for a minute―as you know, this is not America’s finest hour,” she said. “Not that leaving America makes anything different or changes anything. I’ve lived in other places; I lived in London for 10 years. I like to put myself in uncomfortable situations and take risks.”

Another reason for the family’s move overseas was Madonna’s 12-year-old son, David’s, interest in soccer. According to her, David has wanted to play soccer professionally “for years.”

“I’ve been desperate to get him into the best academies with the best coaches, but the level of football in America is much lower than the rest of the world,” she said. “I saw his frustration, and I also felt it was a good time.”

She revealed that she was between Barcelona, Turin, and Lisbon before she made her final decision. Sadly, the piece doesn’t reveal whether she’s already adopted any Portuguese inflections to her speech.
Good for her. As much as I may not agree with her, she at least is "putting her money where her mouth is", so to speak.

I do however, find the bold'd statement, "I like to put myself in uncomfortable situations and take risks" comical, as it kind of contradicted what drove her to leave the United States in the first place. But too each their own.

Now if the rest of Hollywood would follow her lead, this country would be a better place.

I believe that those that drone on about how terrible our country is, would do well to take advantage of the freedom that this country affords them and leave for greener pastures.

This would accomplish a couple of things. First, it would be that many more votes taken away from the Socialists that are intent upon removing the Freedoms we currently have in order to implement their agendas.

And the second benefit would be that they would no longer be relevant to spew their nonsensical banter that has no basis outside their world of make believe, while insulating themselves from the very policies that they wish to espouse. The masses of uneducated and mindless sycophants that hang on their every word, may then have to actually educate themselves on real world issues that effect their daily lives. However, that is mostly just wishful thinking.
