George Clooney is getting political and taking aim at none other than the polarizing Donald Trump in a new interview with the Guardian.
In a timely article that hits two days after Hillary Clinton and Trump’s big wins on Super Tuesday and minutes within U.S. Republican Mitt Romney’s scathing comments about the businessman-turned-politician, Clooney doesn’t mince his words when he calls the billionaire a “fascist,” and an “opportunist.”
The blow came after Clooney recalled his first meeting with the Republican candidate, which included a lengthy chat that later followed by a quick jab from Trump. “I met Donald once. I was sitting in a booth and we talked for a while,” the Clinton supporter said. “Then he did Larry King, and he said I was very short. And I was like: ‘I was sitting down the whole time, Donald!'”
Now it seems the Hail Caesar star is finally getting his revenge. “He’s just an opportunist. Now he’s a fascist; a xenophobic fascist,” the Clinton supporter explained. “You can count on Americans to do the right thing after they’ve exhausted all the other possibilities.”
Clooney continued his attack on the political star by slamming one of the most controversial proposals of his campaign. “Let’s put things into perspective. You know, the truth of the matter is, in election season, things go crazy, and the loudest voices are the furthest and most extreme. So you hear a massively stupid idea, like we’re going to ban Muslims from the country. Now, we’re not ever going to do that,” he added. “It says in the Statue of Liberty, bring us your huddled masses. It’s not what’s going to happen.”
