George Clooney told the Associated Press that it’s becoming more obvious that President Donald Trump is “incapable” of being president.
“It becomes increasingly clear how in over his head and incapable this man is of being president of the United States,” the 56-year-old actor told the Associated Press. (RELATED: What George Clooney Just Said About A Donald Trump Presidency Will Have Voters Fuming)
“The good news is that our other institutions — meaning press, finally, and judges and senators — have proven that the country works. There is a check and balance.”
Clooney said the new film he is directing, “Suburbicon” is relevant today under Trump as it deals with racial tensions.
“I last week screened it for my good friend Norman Lear,” Clooney explained. “When it was over, he looked over and said, ‘This is the angriest film I’ve ever seen.’ It’s a pretty angry film. There’s a lot of anger out there. I think that’s reflected in the film. The main idea of the film was to pick some fights and I always like picking fights.”
“I found it interesting to talk about building walls and scapegoating minorities,” he added, talking about the movie. “I think that’s always an interesting topic but particularly when I was hearing these conversations on the campaign trail. I thought: It’s always good to look back and remember that nothing really is new and every time we’re shocked, we forget that we’ve had this behavior time and time and time again.”
