When it comes to politics, though… Not so much.
But still, I say kudos, Mister Clooney. Too many Hollywood-ites claim to want to save the rain forest or the children or grasshoppers, but they don’t actually do anything about it. You put your money where your mouth is and actually get involved in the politics and causes you say you care about. We need more celebrities like you who care about more than just their own wallets.
Back to politics. Everybody knows George Clooney is a liberal and supports liberals. He helped Obama raise $15 million in 2012. He’s solicited for the Clinton Foundation. He’s even rumored to want to run for a Senate seat or the Governor’s mansion in California. With both money and fame, Clooney would probably be a shoe-in if he did run in the taxed-up, water-less liberal paradise.
But for now, his political focus is singular: electing Hillary Clinton President. In an interview with Fusion set to run next week, Clooney makes several statements which show just how out of touch the left is with reality – celebrities or otherwise.
“Whatever she wants, whatever way I can help. I think that she’s a tremendous candidate,” Clooney said of Hillary. “I think that I would be very happy if she were president.” Whatever she wants? First off, imagine if any female movie star said that about Bill… but seriously, whatever she wants? C’mon, George. We know you have a brain – you’re better than this. No need to be a mindless robotic servant to your Clinton overlords. It’s borderline creepy.
Clooney went on to say that he knows Hillary and “thinks the world of her.” Hmmm. We weren’t exactly looking for more evidence that Hollywood’s in bed with liberal politicians, but there you have it.
Most shocking of this interview, however, was Clooney’s claim that people have tried to make a big deal out of things that shouldn’t be issues, simply because Hillary’s running for President. Benghazi, for example. According to Clooney, it’s no “great scandal.” Really, George? Four Americans died because your friend in the pants suit did nothing to help them. It’s great to help Sudan, but do you care about Americans? AMERICANS died because of Hillary. That’s kind of a big deal, George. A scandal, even…
Support Hillary, Mr. Clooney. We expect nothing less from you. But you really might want to take that Benghazi thing back. Stat.
