Things got ugly a couple of weeks ago among the bubbled one-percent when fading movie star George Clooney and casino billionaire Steve Wynn engaged in a war of words over President Barack Obama.

I haven’t watched any of that asshat’s movies in decades...
Hey Clooney, go read someone else’s words.
Clooney was apparently very drunk and bragging about how Obama was one of his best friends. Clooney sounds like a real A-hole when he’s drunk.
Clooney just embarrasses himself by such ignorant and offensive conduct. But an accomplished man like Steve Wynn has no reason to pay any regard to anything Clooney might say, anyway. Water off a duck’s back...
What an ass .I think if Barack would leave Wynn the fk alone, Wynn wouldn’t say a word about him. That’s the problem Looney——gov won’t leave business people alone.
Would he rather we leave Mr. Obama with a lone a-hole, or a pair of a-holes? Hard to do when he is full of them.
Clooney was apparently very drunk and bragging about how Obama was one of his best friends.
If Obama ever leaves the White House ,I think he’ll want you to pay his bills there George
Did his face turn red and did he stamp his feet?
Yes, it's disturbing.
“...fading movie star George Clooney...”
Precise and accurate. This fading star is a good match for a fading empty suit president.
“Clooney was in Vegas promoting a tequila brand he’s involved with.”
Afterwards Clooney got down on his knees in the bathroom and was heard yelling “Barack ralph, barack ralph, ralph,” into the 0bama altar.
Frankly, if I was George I’d want to drunk off my keester as well. Being a useful-idiot-talentless actor is a tough reality to deal with.
Another Hollywood airhead heard from.
It’s my favorite gif. I (over)use it whenever I can. lol
That’s exactly the thought I had. Leave Barry alooooone...sob, sniffle, whaaa.
Just because I needed a laugh..
LEAVE BRITTANY ALONE!!!
Can anyone do a voice over “LEAVE CLOONEY ALONE!”??
Ahhh, George Clooney, the modern era’s Rock Hudson-————except that Rock had some class.
Well, it speaks volumes. :^)
The Adolescent President
The rhetorical excesses of Barack Obama.
By George Will
NATIONAL REVIEW ONLINE
APRIL 23, 2014
Recently, Barack Obama a Demosthenes determined to elevate our politics from coarseness to elegance, a Pericles sent to ameliorate our rhetorical impoverishment spoke at the University of Michigan. He came to that very friendly venue in 2012, he received 67 percent of the vote in Ann Arbors county after visiting a local sandwich shop, where a muse must have whispered in the presidential ear. Representative Paul Ryan (R., Wis.) had recently released his budget, so Obama expressed his disapproval by calling it, for the benefit of his academic audience, a meanwich and a stinkburger.
Try to imagine Franklin Roosevelt or Dwight Eisenhower or John Kennedy or Ronald Reagan talking like that. It is unimaginable that those grown-ups would resort to japes that fourth-graders would not consider sufficiently clever for use on a playground.
Anyone who has tried to engage a member of that age cohort in an argument probably recognizes the four basic teenage tropes, which also are the only arrows in Obamas overrated rhetorical quiver. They were all employed by him last week when he went to the White House briefing room to exclaim, as he is wont to do, about the excellence of the Affordable Care Act.
First came the invocation of a straw man. Celebrating the ACAs enrollment numbers, Obama, referring to Republicans, charged: They said nobody would sign up. Of course, no one said this. Obama often is what political philosopher Kenneth Minogue said of an adversary a pyromaniac in a field of straw men.
Adolescents also try to truncate arguments by saying that nothing remains of any arguments against their arguments.
Regarding the ACA, Obama said the debate is settled and over. Progressives also say the debate about catastrophic consequences of man-made climate change is over, so everyone should pipe down. And they say the debates about the efficacy of universal preschool, and the cost-benefit balance of a minimum-wage increase, are over. Declaring an argument over is so much more restful than engaging with evidence.
A third rhetorical move by argumentative adolescents is to declare that there is nothing to argue about because everything is going along swimmingly. Seven times Obama asserted that the ACA is working. That is, however, uninformative because it is ambiguous...
THE REST OF THE ARTICLE
What brand. Need to know which to avoid.
Found it - Casamigos. Good to know. Now I can avoid it.
Best Clooney movie was The American.
He didn’t talk much and people shot at him.
“Clooney sounds like a real A-hole when he’s drunk.”
He also sounds like an A-hole when he’s sober.
John Wayne drank Conmemorotivo Tequila. Stay away from that Casamigos swill.
I believe you meant to say,
“Best Worst Clooney movie....”
yes, also his “giving the finger” to all sorts of people he doesn’t agree with
and his refusal to deal with world (or economic) realities, preferring instead to attack straw targets or behave out of purely ideological agendas without respect for the consequences of his actions
I enjoyed Wynn’s comments about Clooney. Apparently when Clooney gets drunk, he considers himself a close personal friend of Barack.
Poooor widdle Obamy and Cloony,
Maybe they can help each other put on their big girl panties.
“Best Clooney movie was The American.
He didnt talk much and people shot at him.”
LOL! I heard “Monuments Men” sucked. It’s really too bad. The book is very good. Leave it to cLooney to #### it up. I did like “O Brother, Where Art Thou?” but he didn’t direct that (thank God)
clooney doesn’t have to be drunk to be a big a-hole.
It will get really ugly if Clooney’s uber smugness collides with Obama’s and the thousands of Prious drivers’ smugness.
Now Wynn is a big Reid ally is he not?
