VIA| Earlier this week, Meryl Streep gave a ridiculous speech bashing Donald Trump during the Golden Globe Awards. Afterwards, Trump fired back by calling Streep one of the most overrated actresses of all time.
Now, A-list celebrity George Clooney has jumped in to defend Streep and attack Trump, but we’re betting that he wishes now that he’d just kept his mouth shut. Conservative 101 reported that Clooney addressed the Streep/Trump scandal while promoting his new film White Helmets, which is about Syrian rebels.
“I’ve always said that about Meryl. She’s maybe the most overrated actress of all-time. She and I worked together on Fantastic Mr. Fox as husband and wife and I will tell you even as a fox, a female fox, she’s overrated,” Clooney said sarcastically.
“Aren’t you supposed to be running the country?” Clooney said of Trump. “We have to hope that he can do a decent job, because when the president of the United States fails, really terrible things happen.”
“I think we’re going to be a little unlucky now. I can only hope for the best,” he added.
Unfortunately for Clooney, many took to Twitter to slam him for insulting our next president.
#george clooney – Clooney needs to stay with scripted lines – obviously he can't think on his feet.
