LOL! Georgie Clooney, who in my opinion, is one of THE Hollywood elitists has come out swinging; insisting that he’s not an elitist because he’s from Kentucky.
Remember that one awards speech where he basically gives credit for the Civil Rights Movement to Hollywood? No? Here ya go…
HAHA! I really don’t think he has a point to add. Hollywood was giving awards while what? While great men like Martin Luther King JR was out giving speeches, protesting peacefully? Come on… You nor Hollywood hold a candle to the Civil Rights Movement.
Speaking with reporters at the Toronto International Film Festival on Friday, Clooney reminded people that Hollywood is very much a part of the Trump White House.
“Hollywood is being quite well represented right now in the West Wing somehow,” he said, citing Trump’s star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame and Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin, who helped finance Wonder Woman.
“You know, they say I’m out of touch. You want to call me a Hollywood liberal? Come at me,” he continued. “I sold ladies shoes, I sold insurance door to door, I worked at an all-night liquor store, I cut tobacco for a living. I can change the fan belt on my car. I grew up in that world in Kentucky. I know every bit of that world, and I know my friends and what they believe.”
“And I know this is not a moment in our history that we’ll look back and be proud of,” Clooney said. “So if I’m not standing on the side I believe to be right, I’d be ashamed.”
Clooney misses the point: Trump supporters acknowledge that the President hails from the Manhattan elite and they just don’t care. He thinks that Americans want someone like them in public service, which is why he cites his pre-Hollywood past as some badge of pride, no different from out-of-touch politicians who try to “out poor” each other during presidential debates.
