Actor George Clooney has endorsed Hillary Clinton calling her a “tremendous candidate.”
“If you listen to the loudest voices out there today, you’d think we’re a country that hates Mexicans, hates Muslims, and thinks that committing war crimes is the best way to make America great again,” said Clooney. “The truth is that the only thing that would prevent America from being great would be to empower these voices. In all of this clutter, there’s been one consistent voice. A voice of tolerance and experience, from a candidate who’s spent a lifetime fighting for the rights of the less fortunate. A candidate who knows firsthand the complexity of our international relationships. That candidate is Hillary Clinton.”
Clooney and his wife Amal will be hosting a fundraising dinner for Clinton at their Los Angeles home in April. Tickets go for $33,400 each. DreamWorks CEO Jeffrey Katzenberg, director Steven Spielberg and Kate Capshaw, and music mogul Haim Saban are all confirmed as co-hosts of the event.
