Speaking at the Cannes Film Festival, George Clooney criticizes US presidential candidate Donald Trump, saying he will never take the country’s top job because Americans will not let fear “drive” them. (May 12)
Actress Julia Roberts sat expressionless as George Clooney said, “There’s not going to be a President Donald Trump.” The actor, who has starred in several movies that have peddled fear and suspense, apparently does not see a connection between Americans attracted to entertainment content with fear and suspense, and Americans that might perceive fear and suspense in their everyday lives. The audience at a Cannes film festival press conference for Money Monster elicited a meager applause when Clooney said Trump’s not going to happen.
Money Monster’s strong cast and solidly written story ride a timely wave of socioeconomic anger that’s powerful enough to overcome an occasionally muddled approach to its worthy themes.
— Rotten Tomatoes
Clooney stars as a financial TV personality — possibly with characteristics comparable to some of Trump’s TV reality characteristics and charisma — who is held hostage by a TV viewer who lost all of his money following stock advice he applied to his family’s finances.
Apparently George Clooney is envious of Donald Trump’s attention-drawing spotlight and his perception of Trump’s overtaking of the fear-driven populace.
