According to Variety, when Clooney was asked about becoming the next president, he said, “Oh, that sounds like fun.”
Matt Damon the interrupted by saying, “Can I just say that I’d like anybody to be the next president of the United States. Right away, please!”
Clooney has been known to slam Donald Trump and had a lot to say about his campaign trail as well as what he’s been doing as POTUS.
He said, “I was watching a lot of [Trump] speeches on the campaign trail about building fences and scapegoating minorities and I started looking around at other times in our history when we’ve unfortunately fallen back into these things.”
Clooney was at the festival to talk about his new film, “Suburbicon” in which a Black family moves into a certain territory and then attacked by an angry mob.
Many say this film was indirectly inspired by Trump, but Clooney quickly mentioned, “isn’t a movie about Trump. …This is a movie about our coming to terms constantly with the idea that we have never fully addressed our issues with race.”
