George Clooney's Glowing Endorsement for Hillary Clinton: She's the 'Only Grown-Up in the Room'
Hillary Clinton is "a candidate who's spent a lifetime fighting for the rights of the less fortunate," George Clooney writes in an email to Clinton supporters
The actor, who along with wife Amal Clooney will host a fundraiser for Hillary Clinton next month, sent supporters of the former secretary of state the following email explaining why Clinton is the candidate for him.
If you listen to the loudest voices out there today, you’d think we’re a country that hates Mexicans, hates Muslims, and thinks that committing war crimes is the best way to make America great again.
The truth is that the only thing that would prevent America from being great would be to empower these voices.
In all of this clutter, there’s been one consistent voice. A voice of tolerance and experience, from a candidate who’s spent a lifetime fighting for the rights of the less fortunate. A candidate who knows firsthand the complexity of our international relationships.
That candidate is Hillary Clinton.
As this primary process continues, Hillary could soon have an insurmountable delegate lead and with that, the Democratic nomination. That would then make her the only grown-up in the room. And if ever there was a time for a grown-up, that time is now.”
Clooney also invited Clinton backers to enter a contest to join him, Amal and Clinton for dinner and drinks at the Clooneys’ Los Angeles home on April 16. Supporters can enter by donating $10 or whatever amount they can, or just by signing up.
“The good news,” Clooney says, “is I’m not cooking.”
