House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-CA) joked Monday that “we may all be moving to Canada soon” during George Washington University’s forum on “Social Media Disinformation and Election Interference,” which included Canadian Member of Parliament Dominic LeBlanc.
A number of celebrities said in 2016 just before and after the election that they would move to Canada if Donald Trump was elected president, including Lena Dunham and Barbara Streisand.
Unfortunately for America, however, most of the celebrities changed their minds after Trump was actually elected.
The moving to Canada comment was probably one of the least offensive comments Schiff made during the big tech forum, which discussed censorship by Google, Twitter and Facebook.
“I, until proven otherwise, have the sense with respect to Google-YouTube that their strategy is to avoid the scrutiny of the other platforms and disclose as little as possible,” Schiff said. “It’s not unlike the — although I’m sure they won’t appreciate this analogy — the president’s view that if you don’t test it, there is no virus.”
