George Clooney Slams Donald Trump, Calls Him 'A Hollywood Elitist'

George Clooney has some harsh words for President Donald Trump.

In a recent interview with Canal+, the 55-year-old actor called out Trump for being a part of the Hollywood elite and claimed that he benefits from his membership of the Screen Actors Guild.

Trump collects $120,000 a year in his Screen Actors Guild pension fund. He is a Hollywood elitist,” George said.

Trump has made several appearances on the big and small screen from cameos in Home Alone 2, The Fresh Prince of Bel Air, and The Apprentice – making him eligible for a pension from SAG.

George didn’t stop there. He then went on to call out Trump‘s chief strategist Steve Bannon for his failing career in Hollywood.

Steve Bannon is a failed film writer and director,” George said. “That’s the truth, that’s what he’s done. He wrote a Shakespearean rap musical about the LA riots that he couldn’t get made. He made a lot of money off of Seinfeld. He’s elitist Hollywood, I mean, that’s the reality.”

    Yet people still whine about celebrities talking about politics, having a celebrity in the white house. Idiots.

  • MadameMidlifeCrisis

    AHAHAHAHAHAHA. Pot meet kettle.

  • DEADP00L

    Why is the pot yelling at the kettle?

    This guy hosted a dinner for Hillary Clinton that cost how much again just for ONE placement?

    How many MANSIONS does he have? How many shady BUSINESSES in SUDAN does he have?

    How many under those businesses making 15 dollars a day I wonder… probably not even a dollar.

    You BOTH are elitists THAT is the actual truth. We have a humble man and you DEMOCRATS threw him under a bus. Bernie Sanders TO THIS DAY is loved by everybody. He was even getting Republicans and real conservatives on his side voting and you did that to him.

    I can’t stand Trump but I can’t stand Neo-Liberalism. You guys destroyed an ENTIRE region, FLINT STILL HAS NO WATER, among other horrific legacies you all left behind ( deporting the most immigrants being another, renewing the Patriot Act installing the NDAA, militarizing our police, squashing occupy wallstreet) while spending PENNIES on your ‘humanitarian’ works.

    Obama let them ALL off, every single banker and people responsible for the crash and crisis are now in the Trump administration – how did that happen Democrats? Hmmm? If you did your jobs and put them in prison they wouldn’t be in power now would they?!

    Sorry George, but like Sudan which YOU helped to destroy – you help to destroy yourselves. Thats what evil does, eventually it finds its way back home.

    Now stew in your GROSS hypocrisy. Deadly even. When was the last time you EVER stuck your neck out for citizens or people in oil rich repressive regimes?

    The ONLY difference between you and Trump is that he is making EVERYBODY miserable and you guys pick and choose – but to the rest of us misery is misery.

    You wore a human mask. Trump is the true fugly face of a creature you still want to pretend isnt your actual reflection.

  • Nightwish

    Trump has appeared in a few films over the last few decades so he’s ‘elitist’ hollywood?

    Steve Bannon is a failed producer, and that makes him elitist hollywood?

    Clooney throws the term around like its perjorative, yet HE is elitist hollywood. NOT TOO BRIGHT.

  • Michael Peterson

    HAHA……..why is clooney talking about himself …..again ?!

    Clooney exposed as fraud

  • Loather

    Pot saying kettle black. It is incomprehensible envy when he as a “”"CIA asset”"” received one billion dollars from CIA! :)))) Let’s guffaw, people!

  • Utope

    So a Hollywood elitist is calling out another Hollywood elitist? I have no love for Trump but some Hollywood elites, like George Clooney, need to look to their own status and wealth before making comments like that.

  • suzybel

    George, you are a self entitled twat.

    Idiot wind
    Blowing every time you move your mouth
    Blowing down the back roads headin’ south
    Idiot wind
    Blowing every time you move your teeth
    You’re an idiot, babe
    It’s a wonder that you still know how to breathe

  • Visitor

    Truth hurts.

  • Cheryl

    Are you kidding?
    George Cooney is the most ostentatious, elitist on the planet. His wife all but wears the price tags on her clothes. What a joke.

  • Cheryl

    Irrelevant filth. Sorry. You have absolutely nothing of substance to add and your poem is a sign of an idiot.

  • Cheryl

    LOSER,

  • Visitor

    Not a fan of Bob Dylan? Of course #tonedeaf #clueless. #trumptard

  • Cheryl

    George Clooney is now the most pathetic has been in show business. And your PR put him there.

  • Cheryl

    And exactly what the Hell does Bob Dylan have to do with YOUR comment?

  • Phil the Donahue

    There is no pot calling kettle black babe, Clooney ain’t in d.c. They are. People seem to forget that.

  • Phil the Donahue

    Pretty decent poem and Dylan just won the Nobel. U know what that is, right? Clooney is right, they are wannabes using the White House to garner fame and subsequently ruin the country.

  • Cheryl

    Maybe George Clooney can pretend to be president in his next movie.

  • Cheryl

    AGAIN; What does Bob Dylan’s lyric have to do with YOUR comment?

  • Phil the Donahue

    Lol. He’s done more humanitarian work than almost anyone. You? Have u even volunteered at the shut-ins for you church group. Sorry ur parents beat u and left u with brain damage.

  • Cheryl

    His reputation is trashed. No one cares what this actor says. He can’t even string a sentence together without a script.

  • Phil the Donahue

    Um, trump is in the White House and Clooney does a shit ton of humanitarian work. Those are two different things. Duh. His status isn’t douche in the White House wanting to be famous at any cost and ruining the country.

  • Phil the Donahue

    NO, one is in the White House. U people do not have critical thinking skills at all. Y’all must have had the sense beat out of u by your crappy parents.

  • Phil the Donahue

    Omg again, one is in the White House and one has a gold plated apartmented and hasn’t done crap for charity. Seriously? His wife is a lawyer. Trumps wife is a high paid hooker.

  • Cheryl

    Spare me. George Clooney; massive hypocrite calling Trump or anyone else an elitist is ridiculous.

  • Visitor

    Clooney is still 4 steps above Trump in class, intelligence, looks and everything else. Now, push off and go climb back into Trump’s orange AN6S.

    Said the semi literate, paid troll.
    (Bye. Enjoy your day 25cents a post day).

  • Visitor

    #laugh How’s the view in Trump’s orange SUNA?

  • Whiteley

    Who? You? Yes, I agree, Cheryl!

  • plez

    U people do not have critical thinking skills at all.
    ———————————-
    Sadly I’m thinking this is spreading outside of Trump’s followers.

  • DEADP00L

    He is very much in DC or are you unaware of his meetings with POTUS, sectary Kerry and his dealings with war lords and war profiteers in Africa?

  • DEADP00L

    You didnt address a single point because you can’t. Typical liberal GARBAGE.

  • Do Tell

    Now THAT I have to disagree with. George Clooney is still A-list as far as Hollywood goes. And I think that him marrying Amal and now facing fatherhood for the first time is a good thing. I admire him more right now than I ever did… and I wish him well.

    Btw, I’m not a Hollywood insider, etc. Just somewhat of a more recent fan.

  • Do Tell

    One thing I noticed about blogs… and this is for anyone… folks blogging at home from “who knows where” and watching politics on TV seem to think only THEY are in the know. Well, many movie stars, etc are just as passionate about the topic and they have more connections and what not to learn things that ppl at home don’t. George Clooney may have actually met our president and may therefore know more about him personally.

  • Do Tell

    Definitely in looks and GC is no spring chicken anymore. He’s showing age, but he presents himself in a good way.

    I thought Trump, with all his high standards, would have at least taken better care of his appearance. For a billionaire, he’s a bit sloppy & careless. He’s overweight and he just doesn’t look as attractive as I would expect him to look at 70… esp being married to a younger beautiful woman.

    DT holds other people to very high standards.

  • Visitor

    Didn’t make any points. He/she tossed in the same TIRED trite nonsensical alt-reality talking points, Snowflake. You are a joke. Nothing to take seriously. #wasteoftime

  • DEADP00L

    The only snow flake here is you and your masters. You cant

  • DEADP00L

    Bare the idea that people are ntsickos easily bought and paid for.

    Congrats on your DNC pick you DESERVE him. Trump is getting 8 years now I cant wait to drink your tears.

  • Visitor

    Drink my tears? You made your bed and you will lie in it. I hope while Trump is there HE sells the whole thing (Russia alreadys owns it). I hope he and his kids raze the whole thing to the ground, and the RESISTANCE will continue, and in the end, it will spell the end of Amerikkka once and for all.
    So yeah, cheers to the end of America.
