After Hillary Clinton and Obama, Democrats are scrambling to find the next “up and coming” star to worship. They need someone that can compete on Trump’s popularity level with the same TV stardom and name recognition. They may be looking at the Ocean’s 11 star, George Clooney.
The latest odds have him at 100 to 1 to run in 2020. He seems to have even gotten better odds since his marriage to 38-year-old Amal Alamuddin, who represented WikiLeaks’ Julian Assange, and is one of the world’s leading human rights specialists.
Clooney’s been a dear friend of Obama’s. He’s a typical Hollywood liberal fanatic and has been a strong supporter and fundraiser for both Obama and Hillary Clinton. He’s supported their liberal policies including their policy on illegal immigration. However, with the recent influx of thousands of immigrants into Clooney’s quiet, little, romantic “getaway” town of Lake Como, Italy, he might still be thinking – “too close for comfort”. His neighbors sure are. Here’s a blast from the past:
Lake Como has long been a destination favored by the powerful and wealthy, many of whom are attracted by its stunning lakeside villas built in Roman times.
H/T The Sun:
Roberto Bernasconi, from a local Catholic charity, said: “We are helping them with food, clothing and we are also mounting showers.
“But it is very difficult, we do not know how to welcome all these people. In the Como diocese we have over 2,000 migrants in the facilities – there is no room.”
“I do not know how much longer we can bear the brunt of this mass of people who would like to cross the border but who are not willing to leave Como.”
The groups of migrants arrive in the area having likely travelled up Italy after landing in the south having crossed the Mediterranean by boat.
Just yesterday nearly 1,000 migrants were saved in six separate rescue operations on the Med.
All six boats – including four rubber dinghies – are believed to have set off from Libya, where criminal gangs charge people thousands to be lead on the perilous crossing.
Many of the thousands of illegal immigrants are coming to Italy from Africa and Europe. They’re camping out until they can afford to pay “smugglers” to head north. It seems those nice, old, quaint, brick streets of Como are beginning to get overrun by Asian men who are hawking umbrellas, flowers, and what not. These same immigrants are sleeping on the streets, in the parks and overrunning the community. Locals are not happy and are protesting, especially against plans to set up camps with tattered tents on the boundaries of Lake Como.
Eh! Clooney is probably thinking – What’s a few tattered tents, right?
Afterall, Clooney’s for big government and believes government should take care of everyone else’s problems.
Did I mention what nice things George had to say about Hillary?
“…I was very, very, very glad that she was secretary of state and that she was an informed, responsible, smart person,”…
Not surprised, since I did start this article by saying George is a liberal and a dear friend of Obama’s and Hillary’s. They ALL welcome more immigrants – even if it means losing jobs, resources, and the character of our own nation.
Once again, George, I hope you are enjoying your view during the holidays!
