Imagine all the people: John Lennon's son Sean Ono Lennon asks about moving to New Zealand

The son of Beatles legend John Lennon and Yoko Ono has tweeted a suggestion he's keen on moving to Aotearoa.

Sean Ono Lennon is one of a huge number of Americans who have apparently been investigating migrating due to various issues facing people living in the US.

"How hard is it to get New Zealand citizenship? Asking for a friend," he tweeted.

The message was posted after the first 2020 US presidential debate between Donald Trump and Joe Biden, which was widely criticised for its lack of decorum as the 74-year-old and 77-year-old men bickered.

In other tweets Sean sent around the time of the debate, he criticised both Trump and Biden.

About the current President he asked: "Why dodge the 'condemn white supremacists' moment? Gee wiz. Insane."

About the former Vice President he noted: "Mr B needs to look at T when he talks, it comes across like he's terrified to make eye contact whereas Mr T is always with the hard stare."

He also said the Democrats "looked weird" for "pretending" there are no problems with mail-in ballots and criticised "the left" for never praising anything Trump has done about the COVID-19 pandemic.

"It's weird the left refuse to even acknowledge they fought the flight ban and called it xenophobic and that it was likely helpful anyway. Mr T maybe made many mistakes but by not acknowledging the good things they make their criticisms weaker."

On the same day Biden and Trump's debate was broadcast, New Zealand's Jacinda Ardern and Judith Collins also took part in a debate hosted by Newshub ahead of the general election on October 17.

Many international commentators pointed out the differences between the two contests, leading to yet more social media posts from people wanting to move to Aotearoa.
