Far-left actor trashes Trump in New York Times interview
Liberal actor George Clooney trashed President Donald Trump, calling him a “charismatic carnival barker.”
The actor was asked by The New York Times what he thought about a Joe Biden presidency and whether he could work with Republicans.
But Clooney insisted that the former Vice President could not work with the GOP, claiming Texas Sen. Ted Cuz as an example of why such efforts would implode.
“Every single one of these guys have aspirations for bigger things — Marco Rubio, Ted Cruz, Mike Pence, all of them,” Clooney told the Times.
“They think people will travel with them because, ‘I’ve stuck with you, Don,’ but the truth is, they won’t.”
“They stay with Donald because Donald, for all of his immense problems as a human being, is a charismatic carnival barker.”
Clooney also slammed the president for refusing to support a coronavirus mask mandate, which already exists in most states.
“The idea that we politicize things like this is crazy,” Clooney said, overlooking the left’s efforts over the very issue throughout Trump’s presidency.
“Had Trump come out at the very beginning and said, ‘We’re all going to wear masks because it’s the right thing to do and it’s going to save a lot of lives,’ the whole country would have gotten behind him, and he would have been re-elected.”
“But he thought it would affect his economy, so he chose to say it didn’t exist. And now we’re going to have 350,000 people dead.”
Clooney, who has donated millions to the Democrat Party, ended by denying any interest in running for office himself.
“That’d be fun, wouldn’t it? Gee, what a great way to spend the last third of my life, trying to make deals with people that have no intention of making deals,” he said.
The far-left actor said earlier this month that America’s “dark ages” are over as he gushed about a Biden Presidency.
Clooney took the opportunity to bash Trump and allege that the president’s leadership through the COVID-19 pandemic “left us feeling like there’s no hope.”
“We have faced an overwhelming threat that has affected people all over the world,” Clooney told the audience.
“But what I want to say to all of you is that we’re going to get through it.”
“This scourge that’s disrupted so many lives, it’s terrified us, wrecked our economy, left us feeling like there’s no hope,” said Clooney.
