Emily SmokeABlunt is married to an American, her kid is American and she lives in America, so she decided to become an American citizen. Even though Emily is an (in the voice of Laura Jeanne Poon) AMERICAN CITIZEN now, she hasn’t lost her British sense of humor, which is drier than the chapped b-holes of the Fox & Friends hosts who didn’t like her joke about the Republican presidential debate, among other things.
Emily was whoring out one of her new movies at the Toronto International Film Festival a few days ago and The Hollywood Reporter asked her and some other actors about Donald Trump becoming president. It was meant to be a stupid, fluffy segment (click here to watch it). Emily said this about that:
“I became an American citizen recently, and that night, we watched the Republican debate and I thought, ‘This was a terrible mistake. What have I done?'”
Emily, who also kept her British citizenship, also talked about becoming a US citizen with Jimmy Kimmel. Emily said that the whole ceremony was weird, because she was doing it with Matthew McConaughey’s wife and the Texas T-Rex was dressed like he was going to safari. It was also a little sad for her, because she likes being a Brit.
“I’m not sure I’m entirely thrilled about it. People ask me about the whole day. They were like, ‘Oh, it must have been so emotional.’ I was like, ‘It wasn’t! It was sad!’ I like being British.”

Well, Steve Doocy, Brian Kilmeade and Anna Kooiman of Fox & Friends didn’t like Emily’s “jokes.” Steve won’t be surprised if in a few years Emily Blunt is on the cover of Entertainment Weekly with her naked body covered with words like “ANTI-AMERICAN TRASH,” because he thinks she just Dixie Chicked herself. And Anna thinks that if Emily hates being an American so much, she needs to quit taking roles from Americans and leave Hollywood, California. via UsWeekly
Fox & Friends co-host Anna Kooiman took offense to the joke, declaring, “You know what, then why don’t you leave Hollywood, California, and let some American women take on the roles that you’re getting? Because Americans are watching your movies and lining your pockets.”
Her fellow Fox News channel stars continued the rant, with Steve Doocy noting, “She just Dixie Chicked herself. She has alienated half the country that now will think twice about going to one of her movies.”
Here’s the video of them declaring Emily Blunt no friend of Fox & Friends:
So, they want an American citizen to stop taking roles from American citizens, which she is, and to leave America for exercising her right to free speech? That is anti-American! And Emily was on Ellen where she was scared by a dude in an Uncle Sam costume while singing “Yankee Doodle Dandy” in Statue of Liberty drag. There’s nothing more patriotic than that.
What more we do they want?!
