If George Clooney wants to run for public office, then he should do it already. Yet, he’s still in the acting biz. Sure, his dad was a politician, but that doesn’t make Clooney a public servant by default.
Still, the media seems to think we care to hear what Clooney thinks in the realm of politics. We don’t. We just want to be entertained, is it really that difficult for Hollywood to figure out? They’ve become so self-absorbed, so surrounded by Yes men, so used to lying that they still believe the lies they spew.
Speaking in London on Monday, Clooney said the United States got a “little unlucky” with President-elect Donald Trump. Except, Trump was selected by Americans who can think for themselves, thank you very much. Clooney then added:
When we first needed a president, we had George Washington. We had Jefferson, Adams. When we had the Civil War, we had Lincoln. I think we’re going to be a little unlucky now. I can only hope for the best.
It was just last May when Clooney declared this at a conference:
There’s not going to be a President Donald Trump. That’s not going to happen. It’s not going to happen because… fear is not going to be something that drives our country. We’re not going to be scared of Muslims, or immigrants, or women. We’re not actually afraid of anything.
During a reception for his upcoming feature film documentary about Syrian rescue workers, “The White Helmets,” Clooney continued:
We have to hope that [Trump] can do a decent job, because when the president of the United States fails, really terrible things happen.
Really? As in what’s happening right now in Syria because Obama failed to follow through on his “Red Line” remark?
Clooney, you’re rich, famous and you have a relatively young wife–stick to that.
