A couple of weeks ago, which seems like an eternity in the current Presidential election news cycle, U.S. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg made a candid, off cuff comment when asked in a New York Times interview what she would do if Republican nominee Donald Trump were to be elected President in November. She jokingly replied that her late husband world tell her “Time to move to New Zealand!”. Not surprisingly, her sardonic comment was met with outrage from Trump and others in the GOP.
Shortly afterward, after briefly doubling down, she backed off, calling her own choice of words “ill advised”.
With the increasing possibility that Donald Trump could, in fact, pull out a win in November, some have looked into the very real notion of relocating, at least for the next four to eight years, to New Zealand, or some other welcoming oasis.
Hopefully, self-exile will no longer be an issue come November.
