George Clooney vs Trump

In a recent interview Clooney sat down to talk about his upcoming film. But as things tend to in this day and age, the interview quickly turned toward the political and President Trump, whom Clooney had some choice words for calling him on his tendency to manipulate and turn  “coastal elites” against “Middle America.”

“Here’s the thing: I grew up in Kentucky. I sold insurance door-to-door. I sold ladies’ shoes. I worked at an all-night liquor store. I would buy suits that were too big and too long and cut the bottom of the pants off to make ties so I’d have a tie to go on job interviews. I grew up understanding what it was like to not have health insurance for eight years. So this idea that I’m somehow the ‘Hollywood elite’ and this guy who takes a shit in a gold toilet is somehow the man of the people is laughable.

--

“People in Hollywood, for the most part, are people from the Midwest who moved to Hollywood to have a career. So this idea of ‘coastal elites’ living in a bubble is ridiculous. Who lives in a bigger bubble? He lives in a gold tower and has 12 people in his company. He doesn’t run a corporation of hundreds of thousands of people he employs and takes care of. He ran a company of twelve people! When you direct a film you have seven different unions all wanting different things, you have to find consensus with all of them, and you have to get them moving in the same direction.

He’s never had to do any of that kind of stuff. I just look at it and I laugh when I see him say ‘Hollywood elite.’ Hollywood elite? I don’t have a star on Hollywood Boulevard, Donald Trump has a star on Hollywood Boulevard! F–k you!” Clooney said.

It's a kind of cognitive dissonance, and people who tend to vote for people like trump, are just more prone to it. I just read an article about a study they did in Australia about people who opposed marriage equality, saying that they had lower cognitive impairment. I was like, I don't need a study to know that. Same with this, it's a combination of cognitive dissonance and probably lower cognitive function.

I honestly believe this - it's the only thing that makes sense and explains it.
