Hollywood liberal George Clooney slams ‘carnival barker’ Trump and rips Republicans who have stood by him
HOLLYWOOD liberal George Clooney slammed "carnival barker" Donald Trump and ripped Republicans who have stood by him.
Clooney's remarks came during an interview with The New York Times, where he referred to Republican Ted Cruz as being a "yutz" for sticking by Trump after he insulted his wife and his father.
"I mean, Ted Cruz, think about what a yutz this guy is!" Clooney told the Times.
"I don't care what your political view is: If a guy said that my wife was ugly and my father killed Kennedy, there is no way in the world you could have me come back and say, 'I'll defend you.'"
The Hollywood star continued by ripping other GOP members, "Every single one of these guys have aspirations for bigger things – Marco Rubio, Ted Cruz, Mike Pence, all of them.
"They think people will travel with them because, 'I've stuck with you, Don,' but the truth is, they wont," Clooney said.
"They stay with Donald because Donald, for all of his immense problems as a human, is a charismatic carnival barker."
During the 2016 elections, Trump and Cruz's paths crossed on several occasions when they were competing against each other for the Republican nomination.
During one low moment, Cruz used a number of Melania Trump's old modelling photographs to criticize Trump in various campaign ads.
In response, Trump tweeted a side-by-side picture of his wife and Cruz's wife Heidi, with a caption reading, "No need to 'spill the beans," Trump wrote.
"The images are worth a thousand words."
“Donald, you’re a sniveling coward and leave Heidi the hell alone,” Cruz replied.
"Donald, real men don't attack women. Your wife is lovely, and Heidi is the love of my life."
That same year in a separate occasion, Trump accused Cruz's father, Rafael Cruz, of helping John F. Kennedy's assassin Lee Harvey Oswald murder the president.
“His father was with Lee Harvey Oswald prior to Oswald's being – you know, shot. I mean, the whole thing is ridiculous,” Trump told Fox News at the time.
“What is this, right prior to his being shot, and nobody even brings it up. They don't even talk about that. That was reported, and nobody talks about it.
“I mean, what was he doing – what was he doing with Lee Harvey Oswald shortly before the death? Before the shooting? “It’s horrible," Trump added.
