Oh, well. It’s all over. George Clooney says that Donald Trump can’t become President. And, we all know that Clooney is the most respected political analyst out there. In fact, all the Hollywood actors and actresses know a great deal more about what is good for this country than those of us who actually work for a living instead of those whose biggest contribution to America is reading scripts that someone has written for them.
Clooney, you will remember, and his trophy wife who is so beautiful it isn’t necessary for her to speak English, held the fund raiser for Hillary Clinton. And, for only $230,000 you could actually sit at the table with Hillary, whose integrity is beyond question. Actually, Clooney held two fund raisers for Hillary and I suppose all of the stupid people who voted in primaries for Trump should have just stayed home because Clooney has spoken and Trump cannot be President.
Well, I’ve never met George Clooney, and it won’t be a great handicap for me to skip his movies, but I did have an occasion to meet his mother, Rosemary Clooney. She was a competent singer with the big bands of the ‘40s and ‘50s and made a number of movies. She was in “White Christmas” with Bing Crosby and Danny Kaye in 1954. And she may have been the female with the foulest mouth that I’ve ever known. She was married to Jose Ferrer at the time and I heard her on the phone cussing out poor ol’ Jose for almost an hour. In those days AT&T owned long distance so the phone bill for that violent conversation from FL to CA must have been outrageous. But at least she didn’t raise money for socialist reactionary political candidates, that I know of.
So we can all go fishing next November. George Clooney has made it official, Trump can’t be President. We are so grateful to him for saving us a lot of time and effort.
