George Clooney has just made yet another powerful stand against Donald Trump, and with no one to answer to and nothing to prove, Clooney isn’t holding back this time. “So many people since Trump was elected have really been pushing on me to get more involved in actual politics, specifically at the highest office,” he said, before admitting that, “I don’t have political aspirations.”
“I have always been involved in politics. My father ran for Congress. It’s been in our family for ever.”
“But, mostly, I can help in ways I actually know very well, like messaging [voters],” said Clooney, adding that what the Democratic party needs is a candidate “who lights up a room.”
Continued Clooney, “Trump, for all his terrible instincts, is very charismatic. A TV star. People didn’t vote for him because he accomplished anything. They knew him. And they were, like, he’s exciting. Democrats in general are very passive. In debates, the Republican will go, ‘That guy’s bad, and that guy’s good.’ And the Democrat will say, ‘Well, I understand what you’re saying, because your parents were alcoholics …’ And the reality is that you need people who go, ‘That’s good. That’s bad.’ ”
Clooney has been very outspoken about his opinion of Trump ever since he decided to run. Calling out Trump for his statements on the “Hollywood Elite”, to which Clooney mocked Trump for his hypocrisy.
George Clooney comes from an honest background, he grew up working class and worked very hard to the point he is at, Trump on the other hand had everything handed to him, so for him to judge Clooney for being a rich and powerful white man of privilege is absolutely insane.
