Sir Patrick Stewart Is Applying For Citizenship So He Can Lead The Resistance Against Trump


Sir Patrick Stewart may be British — thus the knighthood — but he is looking to obtain citizenship in the United States for a very strange reason: to join the resistance against President Donald Trump. His views on Trump are pretty clear. His best friend, Sir Ian McKellen, made them obvious when he attended the Women's March in London with a sign featuring Star Trek’s Captain Picard face palming. He has also been very outspoken on Twitter about the policies, mannerisms, and decorum of the 45th Commander-in-Chief. And he figures if he becomes a citizen, he can better oppose him and even vote against him in the 2020 election. 

I wonder if he would renounce his citizenship in the U.K. or become a dual citizen? Also, being a British citizen didn't help Stewart defeat Brexit, which he opposes, so I'm not sure how he feels it will do any better in fighting American policies he opposes, but I digress...
