Do not call President Obama an asshole in front of George Clooney, even if you’re a powerful hotel tycoon. Too bad Steve Wynn didn’t that memo before dinner with Clooney last night. The two got into a screaming match after Wynn called Obama an asshole.
TMZ reported that Clooney had become inebriated after taking shots of tequila when the two began talking about the Affordable Care Act. After Wynn gave his critical opinion of Obama Clooney began laying down the F-bomb repeatedly.
“I said that the President was my longtime friend and then he said, ‘Your friend is an asshole.’ At that point I told Steve HE was an asshole and that I wasn’t going to sit at his table while he was being such a jackass. It had nothing to do with politics and everything to do with character.”
“When he’s [George] drinking, he considers himself a close personal buddy of the President. Clooney’s fun to be with when he’s sober … If you have a chance to drink with him, you want to get there early, and don’t stay late.Everybody who’s in my business — the casino business — knows to take actors with a grain of salt.”
Let’s hear it for Team Clooney!
