George Clooney Bashes Donald Trump, Praises Hillary Clinton As ‘Only Grown Up’ Candidate
George Clooney sent out an email to supporters of U.S. presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton on Monday. The email was meant to bash Donald Trump, even though he did not identify him by name.Advertisement
The American actor, producer and director wrote to Clinton’s supporters. In the letter, Clooney wrote that because of words coming from a certain politician, everyone is likely to think that the majority of Americans are racist. Even though he did not name that “certain politician,” those who read the letter are unlikely to think of anyone else other than Trump.
“If you listen to the loudest voices out there today, you’d think we’re a nation that hates Mexicans, hates Muslims, and thinks that committing war crimes is the best way to make America great again,” he wrote in the letter that was first reported by CNN. “The truth is that, the only thing that would prevent U.S.A. from being great would be to empower these voices,” the letter further reads.
Clooney on the other hand is all praises for Clinton. He called the Democratic Presidential candidate “a voice of tolerance and experience … who’s spent a lifetime fighting for the rights of the less fortunate. A politician who knows firsthand the complexity of our international relationships.” He also wrote that Clinton is “the only grown-up in the room,” which makes her the best candidate. “If ever there was a time for a grown-up, that time is now,” Clooney wrote.
Page Six also reports that included in the the email is a ticket offered by the “Ocean’s Eleven” actor for supporters to attend a fundraiser at his home in Los Angeles. The said event is to be held on April 16. It will be hosted by Jeffrey Katzenberg (DreamWorks Animation CEO) and his wife along with director Steven Spielberg and wife Kate Capshaw.
Tickets for the event cost $33,400 per person. The proceeds will go directly to the Hillary Victory Fund – a collaboration between the Clinton campaign and the Democratic National Committee.
Just by signing up, the supporters of the former United States Secretary of State can join the contest for a free ticket and one for a guest. Clooney and his wife are only requesting for a $10 donation for those who will attend. As what the actor previously said, he’d do whatever Hillary wants and he’ll help whatever way he can.
