It’s mirrored shitting! It would be easy to take a dump on George Clooney’s “man of the people” claim considering he gets to boink one of the world’s top humanitarian lawyers in a palatial Lake Como estate while he awaits that up to $1 billion Casamigos payment to get divvied up. But you shouldn’t! The Daily Beast landed an interview with Ocean sans the 11, and he’s here to tell Donald Trump and his cronies to back the F up on telling “coastal elites” to shut up. They’re the elite ones!
The very lengthy interview starts out in regard to George’s latest movie as a director, Suburbicon. The film is all the more timely since part of the plot is about how a middle-class African American family isn’t exactly received well in an otherwise all-white neighborhood, and, well, even football games these days are somehow managing to ignite the angry white mafia. George’s first swing at the right wing piñata goes to Steve Bannon, who he claims:
“Steve Bannon is a pussy. Steve Bannon is a little wannabe writer who would do anything in the world to have had a script made in Hollywood. He wrote one of the worst scripts I’ve ever read—and I’ve read it.”
George also had words for why Hillary didn’t win and why Democrats need to get in on the hat game:
“Here’s what I see from Hillary. Hillary, for years and years and years, has been the presumptive nominee, and quite honestly, she was incredibly qualified for the job. But being qualified for the job does not necessarily mean you’re the right person to be president. Here’s what I mean. She was more qualified than even her husband was when he was elected president, but she’s not as good at communicating things. That’s simply true. When she got up and gave a speech, it didn’t soar…
I think that she wasn’t particularly good at articulating the things that she wanted to do, and unfortunately we live at a time right now where articulating what you want to do is more potent in the electorate than the other way around, obviously, when Trump only said he was going to ‘Make America Great Again.’ Don’t you think the next Democrat who runs should just run with a blue hat that says, ‘Make America Great Again?'”
Tell us how you really feel, George. He adds some Hollywood type should have fallen on the sword and picked up Steve’s script, a rap musical about the L.A. race riots, just to keep him employed and busy instead of driven to stir the shit soup that is Breitbart. Breitbart and Donald love to talk about how Hollywood is so out-of-touch, and George is here to shit on that claim since the latter of the two takes his dumps in a golden toilet – literally:
“Here’s the thing: I grew up in Kentucky. I sold insurance door-to-door. I sold ladies’ shoes. I worked at an all-night liquor store. I would buy suits that were too big and too long and cut the bottom of the pants off to make ties so I’d have a tie to go on job interviews. I grew up understanding what it was like to not have health insurance for eight years. So this idea that I’m somehow the “Hollywood elite” and this guy who takes a shit in a gold toilet is somehow the man of the people is laughable.”
All-night liquor store?! Why would you ever leave a dream job like that?? George notes most people in Hollywood came from the Midwest and “Flyover Country,” and Donald should STFU since he has a star on Hollywood Boulevard and George doesn’t. George then put on a Bobby Brown accent and said, “I’ve been to jail before. THAT’s American.” No he didn’t, but until either of them can claim that, I think they’re both elites!
