George Clooney Talks Politics on 'FOX News Sunday'

George Clooney sits down for an interview for FOX News Sunday airing on Sunday, September 18.

The 55-year-old actor opened up about the 2016 Election and the corruption in South Sudan, among other things.

On what he makes of politics today: “You know that’s a good question. I think it’s frustrating. You know, I grew up as a Democrat in Kentucky in the 70’s, so, you know, I grew up in a place — I was a minority, you know, in that world. I didn’t move to Hollywood and become a Democrat. But it wasn’t as contentious and there wasn’t the idea that once, one party got power that nothing was going to happen from the other side, that they were going to just stop things cold. I worry about that. I think that’s dangerous. It’s a very funny thing, odd for me to be on the same side of an issue as Bill Kristol and Charles Krauthammer and George Will and people like that. And usually we’re not on the same side.”

On how he views Americans moving forward: “I feel as if we need to get away from the divisiveness that we’re stuck in right now and the fear that we’re playing off of. You know, I think it was [Edward R.] Murrow that said, ‘we cannot be driven by fear into an age of unreason if we look deep in our history and remember that we are not the descendants of fearful people.’ I think that’s an important part of us and I think that’s important to remember as we go forward.”

On the corruption in South Sudan: “It’s a fairly rich country in a strange way. They have a lot of oil. They have mineral rights. They have a lot of things that they – there’s some gold. The people aren’t getting any of that money, you know. There’s so much of this money that’s going out of the country and not to the people, the people who deserve it.”

Tune into George‘s full interview on Sunday, September 18 on Fox News Sunday.

    that may be the aim of the big guns who make these decisions. Power elite…Bohemian Grove… whatever you want to call them…
    Presidential candidates are selected on the basis of appealing to the masses, serving an agenda, & ability to act. That’s how the last few decades have been.
    Unfortunately for George, he doesn’t have the guiding force to succeed at even pretending…
    He is an actor with no formal education playing a role. A stooge who believes his own media hype.
    A controlling, insecure man who lost perspective long ago. Despises his public persona to the point he is miserable.
    He has no idea.
    However, there’s a lot of money to be made eben just running for office….mayor…governor…
    His father Nick Clooney gave it a shot….Lost…
    George wants to for sure. His favourite roles are those of a political crusader…
    Money…prestige…power….his true loves…
    But he’ll fail because….. Just a token stooge.

    That became clear when he got married.

  • Gina

    Yep.

    I think he’s waiting for Hillary to get elected. I think he has major plans for that – for himself. I think that’s why he’s gone way overboard to cozy up to her and raise tons of money for her.

    He isn’t married.

    George Clooney isn’t married? I bet his wife would be very surprised to know that.

  • lurkerette

    He doesn’t have a wife.

  • Levi Steinbeck

    Staged PR stunt with no filed marriage licence.
