"Would I like to be the next president? Oh, that sounds like fun."

Sarcasm, from George Clooney, who once said "Who would ever want to live like that?"

Who would want it? That's a reasonable question in today's uncivil society. Mr Trump and Mr Obama are both thin-skinned, albeit with different styles. In recent memory Dubya was perhaps the most suited to the job by temperament. How many times was he portrayed as an ape by political cartoonists? But he never whined.

Someone would call a President Clooney at 3:00 and say the North Koreans have launched a nuclear missile towards San Francisco, and President Clooney would say ...

"Quick! Where's my script?"

As a general rule, I question the sanity of anyone who actually wants the job. In fact, I think wanting the job should probably be a disqualification. You get 4/8 years of being held responsible for every bad thing that happens in the world, while having to kiss the asses of people you wouldn't leave alone with your kids just to get things done. It takes a special kind of narcissist to think they can handle that kind of thing and come out on top.

Clooney would be the dumbest president in history. We don't need that.

tcrosse said...

Selection of the President has become a casting decision for a show-biz besotted public.

William said...

He's good looking, charming, and can ad lib witty lines. What more do you want in a President? Plus he's probably never had a single politically incorrect thought in his entire life. Enter Galahad, stage left.

Because we all know George Clooney is the Democrats' main source of analysis and news. Sad truth! But who cares what ol' George thinks? We want to hear from his wife, Anal. We love Anal. More Anal. Hahahaha! http://bit.ly/2wzMZmw

Isn't Amal associated w/ Assange?

On this, he is right.

Sort of like checking into a white collar prison as though it were a hotel.

Clowney is a disaster. He spends a few days a year in the USA, and tries to bullshit everyone with his Hollywood disease.

His whole shtick is that Hollywood and Democrats understand people better than Republicans, and having separated these schmucks from their money, can easily preach to them the wrath of a wealthy emigrant.

Fuck him, Fuck Italy.

We need a wealthy actor. No! we need a black senator with no qualifications. No! we need a billionaire with media control. No! we need Hillary again and again till we get this right.

No! you need to stop hating Americans and start getting them jobs.

George Clooney is a condescending schmuck.

About the only thing worthwhile in Hollywood is Clint Eastwood.

holdfast said...

This may be the only intelligent thing Clooneynhas said. At least since his apology for Batman & Robin.

Clooney plays pretend for a living, he'd fit right in with the Commie-pinko wing of the democrat party.

MayBee said...

I don't know.
I look at the Obamas's lifestyle before the presidency, and their lifestyle now, and it looks to me like they upgraded substantially.

Matthew Sablan said...

As a prerequisite for any actor becoming a politician, we really should require them to either stepping stones up like Reagan, or be in a Predator movie like Ventura/Schwarzenegger.

William said...

You'd prefer Elizabeth Warren?

narciso said...

The Indian from predator, sonny landham, a onetime libertarian candidate for gov, passed
Last week.

So its another heavy handed message film, this time with the cone bros unlike last time with sodebergh

Hence pat Fitzgerald subsequently steered away from pointing Obama or high officials in the Daly administration

LilyBart said...

Well, Vogue would write all sorts of fawning articles about Amal's high heeled shoes, I'm sure! All her weird outfits (and they ARE mostly weird) would be lauded.

Deb said...

If he ran, he'd probably win. Scary thought.

Bill said...

George and Amal Clooney are top-drawer versions of John Legend and Chrissy Teigen.

The Toothless Revolutionary said...

He's making fun of the idiotic, eternal ingenue - Trump.

tim in vermont said...

I like stretching a word as much as anybody, but "ingenue"? Don't you mean naive simpleton or something?

tcrosse said...

Maybe the Juvenile Lead.

bagoh20 said...

The kind of people that liberals and conservatives fantasize about as president are so different.

The Toothless Revolutionary said...

In Trump's case, absolutely. The only thing he's experienced in is conning people. But the word I used would probably piss him off more.

donald said...

I'm not the biggest Trump fan, trust me, but unlike ritmo he has built massive buildings all over the world, has banged world class pooner, and raised three decent kids, as opposed to being an internet dick sucker. Like Ritmo. Maybe he got lucky and sucked Clooney's dick. Unlike his beard "wife".

donald said...

As in maybe Ritmo sucked Clooney's dick, when he's not being ass fucked in his Brazilian hovel for the odd dollar or two.
