In the midst of award season, Hollywood's favorite liberal spokesperson Mr. George Clooney was missing from many of the posh events.
It turns out that Clooney has been living it up in France and talking to the French media about his elitist president. Thats right, Clooney who epitomizes Hollywood glamour and privilege compared President Trump to the "Hollywood elite" that he has worked with for decades.
"He is a Hollywood elite, and Steve Bannon is a failed film writer and director," said the Ocean's Eleven star.
Clooney went on to name Trump's many appearances in TV and film and insult Steve Bannon's financial success after purchasing royalties for the FOX hit, Seinfeld. Who is Clooney to judge? He's spent years and years profiting off of Hollywood, the very last thing he should be doing is pointing fingers.
The American people don't look down on Steve Bannon and Donald Trump for their wealth. In fact, they celebrate their successes. Many Trump supporters admire that Donald isn't a seasoned politician. Instead, he's become a leader in various sectors of business giving him an extensive knowledge of the global economy. At the end of the day, our country is the largest business in the world and our citizens want a businessman to make sure it succeeds.
Clooney also attended the French César awards where he stepped to the mic to deliver a rather anti-American and anti-Trump speech.
Joined with actor Jean Dujardin on stage, Clooney neglected to talk about the award show and went straight into a political rant where he blamed Donald Trump for exploiting fear. Pollfish.com recently published a survey where 25% of the people surveyed said that celebrities should not talk about politics at award shows. Unfortunately, Hollywood just can't keep their opinions out of Washington. Despite his war with the media, Donald rarely speaks out against celebrities. Celebrities should adopt his mentality and keep entertainment separate from politics.
Said George Clooney:
"We must not confuse dissent with disloyalty. We must not walk in fear of one another. We must not be driven by fear into an age of unreason. If we dig deep in our history and remember that we are not descendants from fearful people, we proclaim ourselves indeed as we are the defenders of freedom wherever it continues to exist in the world. But we cannot defend freedom abroad by deserting it at home.
The actions of this president have caused alarm and dismay amongst our allies abroad and given considerable comfort to our enemies. And whose fault is that? Not really his. He didn’t create this situation of fear, he merely exploited it—and rather successfully.
Cassius was right. “The fault, dear Brutus, is not in our stars, but in ourselves.” Good night, and good luck."
SHARE if you think Clooney should stick to movies and leave governing to Donald.
