George Clooney to Trump: ‘Aren’t you supposed to be running the country?’

First of all, these are some photos of George and Amal Clooney last night in London, at a Netflix screening at The White Helmets, a documentary which Clooney produced about the Syrian volunteers who look for survivors after bombs fall. Considering the serious subject matter, I do feel like a tool for saying this, but I’m still going to say it: bump much??? We heard a rumor last week that Amal is expecting twins. I’m pretty sure I spy a bump underneath that loose dress.

Meanwhile, George spoke to media outlets at the screening, and of course he was asked about Meryl Streep and Donald Trump.

George Clooney is weighing in on President-elect Donald Trump’s comments about Meryl Streep following her politically charged speech at the Golden Globes. Trump lashed out at the actress via Twitter on Monday after she criticized him in her passionate Golden Globes speech about empathy Sunday night. In response, Trump called her “one of the most overrated actresses in Hollywood.”

“I’ve always said that about Meryl,” Clooney told PEOPLE sarcastically. “She’s maybe the most overrated actress of all-time. She and I worked together on Fantastic Mr. Fox as husband and wife and I will tell you even as a fox, a female fox, she’s overrated,” he said with a smile.

“Aren’t you supposed to be running the country?” he asked Trump rhetorically. “I didn’t vote for him, I don’t support him, I don’t think he’s the right choice. At this moment in our lives we have to hope that he doesn’t destroy everything. The reality is you have to hope he will do a decent job because if the United States fails, really terrible things happen, so you have to hope that he can.” But he added: “I don’t see any signs of it.”

[From People & The Guardian]

Regarding Meryl specifically, George also said, “I support her right forever” to speak out. He also said “we’re going to be a little unlucky now” that President Baby Fists is around, just like we were unlucky with George W. Bush. As for what he says about hoping Baby Fists doesn’t “destroy everything” – isn’t it fascinating and terrible that’s how low the bar is set? Like, I think that way too. If we get out of this without nuclear war, we’ll be okay, maybe.

    I think her face looks different, too, a little fuller (good look for her!) so, yes, pregnant.

  2. boredblond says:

    Nope, that’s the hired help’s job.

  3. Nicole says:

    Well put. The only thing is that he doesn’t sell us down the river to Russia and that China doesn’t bomb the crap out of us.
    I’m hoping the Dems resolves to get down and dirty because playing nice with the GOP clearly has not worked in the last 8 years. Time to start using their playbook. I’m not here for people like Sanders asking us to play nice with the well meaning politicians trying to destroy all my rights.

    • SM says:

      Guys, you are looking at it all wrong. It is not only the question of “is anyone going to bomb US”, here in Europe we are on the brink of another world conflict. The Russians are just waiting for their chance, escalating the far right, nationalist movements in Europe appealing to some sort of conservative – religious state as opposed to the Godless, spineless liberals in the West. Putin interfered in the election not because he is planning to go against US (not in upcoming four years for sure), but because that adds to the deconstruction of the liberal democracies here in Europe. His target for the nearest future – to add to the global chaos (and there is no better way to do that than though Trump in the seat of the most powerful president on earth) and reclaiming the post Soviet space. Since some of the European countries belonging to Russia’s circle of influence (according to Kremlin) are in NATO and NATO presence at the Western border of Russia basically is defended by US, you guys will have to be involved in a mayor world conflict in the near future. Unless the Trump acts firm on his first day and makes Russia understand that if they do go there US won;t herisatate to respond with force. But it looks like he is more interested in making friends with Putin.

      • JulP says:

        This exactly. Russia’s latest target is Angela Merkel. The problem is that Trump has made it clear he is not going to oppose Putin (and likely will be working to advance Putin’s interests in order to repay the ~$500 million he owes to the Bayrock group). And if Germany and France both elect nationalist leaders, there will be no one left to stop Putin.

      • Nicole says:

        I don’t doubt it. I was just in Europe for the holidays and heard the same sentiment. That they hope the US doesn’t escalate the entire world into WWIII. I was also in Berlin and well we are living in pre-WWII conditions now. To a tee.

      • Tourmaline says:

        Thanks for this context.
        Unfortunately, many Trump supporters just don’t care what happens to anyone in Europe, or actually anyone except themselves and their own kind. See the recent NY Times article with many quotes from those who voted for him saying they are pleased as punch if Putin influenced the election.

      • NotSoSocialButterfly says:

        tRump is placing a few generals in his cabinet, so there is hope that they will rein in his desire to be Putin’s lap dog.

      • Macscore says:

        Yes, I absolutely agree with you, @SM. Here in Austria we’re feeling extreme relief that we “dodged a bullet” by _NOT_ electing the hideous, far-right Hofer (who is _far worse_ than he tried to appear); although our President does not have anywhere near the powers of POTUS, the election of Van der Bellen was – correctly – perceived as sending a strong message that far-right populism is NOT where we want to go. The cracks in the fabric of the EU are getting wider, and it’s no secret that Putin and his cronies are doing everything they can to undermine and destroy that fabric. The fact that the Orange Twitterhead is playing *right* into his hands is too terrifying for words. And, don’t forget, Twitterhead has gone on record as announcing that it’s not a done deal that the US would honour its NATO treaties and defend/support countries coming under the Russian sphere of influence: “I dunno, we’d have to see how much they’ve paid in…” or some such ignorant ramblings. G*d help us all.

      • Lightpurple says:

        The US will be going to war with China. That way, both countries will be out of Putin’s way.

      • Cran says:

        THIS THIS THIS!!!!

        Europe is in great real time danger and must be protected. The world at large is on a fence and can be easily tipped in one direction or another. Putin is in no less a precarious position but he is extremely dangerous and powerful politically and financially. He has been tightening his inner circle and as such appears to be painting himself into a corner. Sanctions are hurting the Russian populace and he uses that pain redirecting it outward and westward.

        He is increasingly being cornered and reacts as a wounded dangerous animal.

      • lavins says:

        I think that’s exactly what Putin is up to, but I also think he wanted to WEAKEN America, by getting Trump in. When Hillary said Putin wants a Puppet, that’s why he wants Trump, imo she called it clearly, She was correct.
        I also think Putin will have no problem trying to pull up a war ship along one of the US neighbors off of Florida in the Caribbean to try to test Trump’s reaction.
        TRUMPS stupidity is thinking that Putin is his friend, thinking that Putin wants to work with him. Putin is no one’s friend. He will make a complete fool of Donald.

      • sarah says:

        And Bannon is working with far right nationalists to destablize the German voting.

      • detta says:

        Okay, first: which “nationalist leader” for Germany are you talking about here? The far right would have to get at least 50% of the votes in order to be leading party with chancellor. Germany is not a two party state and on a nationwide basis has had coalitions for many, many years (made up of conservatives, social democrats and liberals in varying mixes).
        Second: I, too, have recently been to Berlin, my brother lives there. I have been twice within the last four month actually. To say Berlin is in a state of pre WWII condition is wildly off the mark.
        Do I think Putin has an agenda, yes. Surely he wants to gain back lost influence, but does that mean he wants to wage war? Russia is highly reliable on doing business with Europe and other countries (e.g. gas exports) so his wishes for chaos probably only go so far.
        Not that we – all of us everywhere – need not be vigilant and on our toes. But exaggeration and just pointing fingers isn’t very constructive, there has to be ongoing communication on all political and diplomatic levels. Getting hysterical and seeing Russia kick off WWIII in Europe tomorrow isn’t helpful at all.

    • Cannibell says:

      My biggest fear (among so many others) is that he’s going to provoke North Korea.

  4. Jenny says:

    I spy a bump too. And she looks so happy. George doesn’t look as happy but I wouldn’t either if I was getting a baby or two for the first time in my fifties! Yikes! He’s probably way set in his chosen lifestyle and is old enough to know how having kids will disrupt everything. Good thing for him he can hire all the night nurses and nannies his heart desires…

  5. Esmom says:

    That was my question, too. As we discussed yesterday, nice he’s got the time to see the Globes but doesn’t have time for intelligence briefings. I’m queasy and enraged just typing that.

  6. Fa says:

    Definitely pregnant and people magazine get the cover story tomorrow or today

  7. Sarah says:

    So she’s really pregnant. Congrats!

  8. Jenns says:

    I want Trump to fail. I want him to fail “bigly”. I want him to fail at repealing the ACA. I want him to fail at getting a supreme court judge appointed. I want him to fail at getting his stupid wall built. I want his tax plan to fail. I want him to fail, fail, fail.

    *Zips up flame retardant suit*

    And if the county fails under his leadership, we deserve it. Because while he didn’t the popular vote, he did get enough votes to win the electoral college. This country put his stupid a** into power. And now we all have to deal with the consequences.

    But my sincere apology to the rest of the world.

    • jwoolman says:

      We just have to tell the rest of the world that we are all calling in sick for the next four years and the whole country is under quarantine. So please don’t expect anything useful from us…

      • Who ARE These People? says:

        Whatever happened to the concept of a general strike, because that may be the only thing that gets any attention.

      • Macscore says:

        @jwoolman – don’t know whether to laugh or cry at your great comment – the country under quarantine…. I really really feel so, so bad for all my fabulous, intelligent, liberal friends – and in fact everyone who didn’t vote for Twitterhead. I’ve lived in the states for more than half my life, and my heart feels so, so torn. I cannot remember any election that divided the country to the degree that this one has. I feel as if the entire world is just in a vortex, spinning crazily out of control; the idea of a general strike (see comment below) is of course a great one, but after Jan 20th such an action would no doubt be met by jack-booted, club-wielding thugs representing the “authorities.”

    • sarah says:

      I want him to fail, too. He is a dementia-riddled narcissist who care more about an actress insulting him than he does about Russian hacking government agencies.

  9. milla says:

    he cannot do anything right. Obama is still the president.

    that dress for a documentary about refugees?

    worst famous couple. congrats on the kids!

  10. manda says:

    Re: your very last comment–I could not agree with you more! But a lot of people just don’t see it that way, so I honestly feel like I’m going crazy sometimes. Like, maybe I’m just “catastrophizing” a non-catastrophe? I wish I could stop worrying about this because I know that doesn’t help, but wow, I’m pretty worried

    • minx says:

      No, it really is that bad. I’m 64 and I have never been so frightened for this country.

      • sarah says:

        I’m 55, and I’m right with you. After hearing a montage of all the insulting things he said since last year, I’m stunned that 24% of eligible voters voted for him. And even though it’s the lowest on record, his 37% approval rating today is absurdly high for the Tweeting Toddler.

    • Nicole says:

      It’s only castastrophizing to people that are just waking up to how shit and racist this country is. For some of us this is just the cherry on top of the reality we’ve always known.

      It is this bad

    • JulP says:

      I wish I could convince more people how bad it’s going to be! Most of my friends and family keep telling me I’m exaggerating, just wait and see, it won’t be that bad (and they didn’t vote for Trump either). That’s why I like posting here, because people share my fears and concerns.

      I truly think American democracy is dead (and, really, it has been dying since Citizens United, but Trump’s election and his cabinet full of oligarchs are the final nails in the coffin) and, as SM noted above, we’re also facing another world war in Europe. Except this time, there won’t be anyone to “come to the rescue,” so to speak. I’ve been so depressed and hopeless since the election, and every day it just gets worse (because everything Trump and his minions are doing is far worse than I ever could have imagined). And I am just so, so angry at everyone who voted for Trump. My mother and father in law voted for them and I refused to visit them on Christmas. I’ll never forgive them or anyone else who voted for Trump. Ugh. Sorry, rant over :/

      • Macscore says:

        @JulP – oh, I’m so sorry that this crisis has highlighted a division in your family (or caused it – who knows)… – I wish those of us on this site who feel the same way could all meet up for a massive brain-storming, elbow-bending, primal-screaming *coven*. I feel very isolated where I live (Europe) – I have a few US friends, and they’re all scared shitless/bursting blood vessels with anger, too, but most of my European friends just don’t really get it – they’re sure that Twitterhead is a total idiot, but don’t really see the danger he poses, and are (somewhat superciliously) convinced that *they* would never be so stupid as to be presented with a candidate like him….

      • sarah says:

        My mother and mother-in-law voted for him. They are both in their 80s, have illnesses, and if the Repubs have their way, they will lose Medicare and get some kind of voucher for medical care. I can just imagine them trying to buy health insurance at their age!!! It’s crazy!! And these are both white women who have paid off homes, money in the bank, yet feel we need to Make America Great Again?

        I didn’t go to my mother’s house for Christmas. I let her make her own damn turkey.

      • funfactor says:

        I feel exactly the same, JulP. A lot of friends and family are sick to death of my “hysterical crepe-hanging.” My good friend in Australia finally refused to discuss politics at all. When I confided that as I live in Texas, the gun capitol of the country, I need to buy a gun and learn how to shoot in case of a civil war (at worst), he labeled me “a bit ridiculous.” I find it surreal and horrifying that no one seems to be effectively trying to stop Trump in his tracks. Too little, too late. But considering all the nasty elements we’re dealing with, it is not an exaggeration to fear utter disaster for us all.

    • mayamae says:

      The only positive I can think of is for investigative journalism. There are some modern Woodwards and Bernsteins that will hopefully bring him down – if all the political journalists aren’t jailed.

      • Who ARE These People? says:

        And if someone will publish their work and promote it widely. Though even then, there doesn’t seem to be anything bad enough to motivate the Republicans to stop this madness. True power lust.

      • SusanneToo says:

        Looking for a silver lining, some of the greatest films were made during the dire days of Vietnam/Nixon/Watergate, so there’s that.

      • Clare says:

        Trouble is WHO will believe the journalists? Trump has very cleverly introduced a narrative that anyone who criticizes him is a) a liar (the lying media) and/or b) part of the ‘liberal elite’. I fear that journalists will find stuff, but they won’t be taken seriously.

      • JulP says:

        @Clare, yup! Yesterday I saw Trumpers denying that he mocked a disabled reporter when it’s ON CAMERA! There is actual video of it and they still don’t believe it! They believe everything he tells them, even when there is evidence that directly contradicts his lies. So I have little hope that investigative journalism will save us.

      • Really? says:

        But does investigative journalism really matter anymore? Even with lawsuits against him for fraud (Trump Uni), rape, ect., he was still elected President. Prior to this election, those accusations would have sunk any candidate for political office. If he murdered someone, no one would care. He told the Russians to hack the DNC, which is exactly what happened. Watergate impeached a President for basically the same thing except the Republicans physically broke into the DNC. Trump could probably murder someone, and his supporters would excuse his behavior because he is “making America great again.” He is currently negotiating deals with foreign countries to enrich himself and his family, has major conflicts of interests as the defacto head of his Trump businesses, has appointed family members as political advisors– all of these things would have previously been impeachable offenses for corruption. Now everyone just shrugs like this is the new normal.

    • Kitten says:

      This is my struggle everyday, manda.

      I’m constantly asking myself if I’m overreacting and telling myself maybe it won’t be that bad. Then I read something else about his administration or some shady shit that Trump did (money laundering for Russian mafia anyone?) and I lose my mind all over again. The stuff with Kushner being hired to work in the White House, Jeff Sessions going after legalization of recreational marijuana….I don’t know. It’s just one bad thing after another. Maybe if I could just get ONE tiny bit of good news about this administration and I could calm down but so far….NADA.

  11. TyrantDestroyed says:

    I read: “Aren’t you supposed to be ruining the country?” :P I guess is basically the same context.
    Amal looks pregnant to me, so congrats to both.

  12. Clare says:

    The thing is, hollywood mega stars saying negative things about Trump is not having any real impact – other than giving *HIM* more ammunition agaisnt the ‘liberal eleite’ and ‘lying media’. They are playing into his hands and further HIS narrative. Even though I almost completely agree with what Streep and Clooney have said – I really think those that oppose Trump need to come up with another strategy, because A-listers criticizing him doesn’t seem to be getting us anywhere…

    I am mindful, though, that ANYONE speaking out against Trump is a good thing – we just need to figure out how to leverage this better. Trump may be stupid as F about many things, but he is a master manipulator.

    • Nic919 says:

      But it probably bothers him more than anything when Hollywood stars attack him because it reminds him that he is not as cool as he thinks he is. And that will drive him up the wall. So I say continue Hollywood stars. Remind him that he will never be a part of the cool club.

      Why placate this jackass? He is not going to act any nicer. His pettiness will never fade.

    • Jenns says:

      I disagree. Trump cares very much what the Hollywood elite think of him. He cares way more about what Meryl Streep thinks about him than actually being the president. He is not a master manipulator. He’s a dumb bully who wants to run with the cool crowd. I guarantee you that is someone pulled Trump into a room and gave him the option of 1. Being president or 2. Being accepted into the Hollywood world where he could host Celebrity Apprentice, have star-studded golf outings and parties at Mar Lago, he would for sure take option #2.

    • MellyMel says:

      “because A-listers criticizing him doesn’t seem to be getting us anywhere…” I don’t think so. He wishes he was an A-Lister Hollywood big-shot and it kills him that he’s not. He wants everyone to love him and praise him so whenever anyone calls him out for being the asshat that he is it drives him insane…and I love it. It might not get him out of the White House, but it’ll make him uncomfortable for the next four years and that’s something.

    • Who ARE These People? says:

      I hope they step it up. They give voice to a lot of fears and angers, and many are quite articulate. Everyone’s entitled to speak their minds and it keeps him busy.

      • Clare says:

        I hope you guys are right.

        I just can’t see this kind of criticism having any kind of impact (other than annoying him, which, while fun, isn’t getting us anywhere) outside of furthering the narrative he has introduced where those who disagree with him are a) liars b) dumb c)liberal elites d) overrated.

        I guess my point is – while there is merit in A-listers criticizing him (annoying him, giving a voice to the rest of us), how the hell do we get through to those who SUPPORT him to change THEIR minds?

      • Kitten says:

        @ Clare-you DON’T get through to them, you just don’t. I keep telling people to not waste their time. Save your energy for fighting and resisting.

      • Jenns says:

        Some of them are already changing their minds. Especially when Trump tweets about A-List celebs.

        https://twitter.com/molly_knight/status/818173249175465984

      • Kitten says:

        So two semi-rational people out of how many…?

        By and large, the response from Trump-supporters that I see is a digging in of heels, justification, deflection, “But Hillary” and “This is Why Trump Won” etc.

        I have yet to see even one person in my FB feed or other forms of social media express remorse for voting for this guy. The closest thing I’ve seen to any expression of trepidation are some Trumpsters cautioning others to “Wait and see what he does….”.
        That’s FAR from an admission of regret or remorse.

        Sorry to be so pessimistic but I’m just stating my observations. I would love it more than anything if we could get through to these people, but I simply don’t see that happening.

      • Jenns says:

        There are more than two people who told him to stop tweet in, but it wasn’t showing up on the embedded tweet. However, that doesn’t matter and I do see your point. Of course, we can’t go by FB either.

        You are never going to get through to all of his supporters. Republicans like Sean Hannity will always support the Republican politician no matter what. As Trump said himself, he could shoot someone and still get votes.

        But, reading and hearing from the people who voted for him in many outlets, some of them are very clear that they didn’t love Trump. They just disliked Hillary more. Trump isn’t walking into office as a popular nominee. He only has a 40-something percent approval rating, which is much lower than what Obama and Bush had. Trump is going to have to do something BIGLY to get keep these unsure supporters. And he’ll need to do something that directly affects them. So if their jobs don’t come back, the wall isn’t built, they lose their insurance and the swamp isn’t drain, I see him losing support fast.

      • Christin says:

        Some just voted against HC, or their fundamentalist leaning to GOP. Now a few of the less advantaged voters are waking up to the reality of how THEY personally could be impacted by program cuts.

        For those folks, it’s going to be like slowly coming out from anaesthesia and realize you thought you were getting a facelift, but a limb has been amputated.

      • Kitten says:

        Hey I’d love to be wrong..

        The thing is, saying “Trump shouldn’t be tweeting” doesn’t equal the amount of outrage that is needed to affect any real change. We would need an uprising of epic proportions to reverse this train.
        Because all the Trumpgrets in the world can’t stop the cabinet picks that will inevitably create irrevocable damage over the next four years.

        Eh. I guess I’m just at the point where I don’t give a f*ck about people who voted for Trump. I don’t care enough to change their minds nor do I care if they feel regret or not. The damage will be done because nobody says no to Trump–we’ve seen that. The Trumpsters hired an unqualified-reality-tv-show-host-turned-demagogue and to me that’s unforgivable.

      • sarah says:

        I agree with you. Only 24% of eligible voters voted for him. We need to get every eligible voter out to vote, because many of them were in cities, and many had their voting rights curtailed, so we need to work on that, too.

        And many Trump voters who didn’t believe he would repeal the ACA are now having buyers’ remorse: that woman in the NY Times story whose husband is on a liver transplant list, coal miners in WV with black lung, many others.

        And the more Trump is up all night waiting for 6:30AM so he can tweet a nasty tweet at an actress, the less time and attention he will have to destroy the world. We MUST resist. I go on Twitter and insult him every day. 90% of the responses to him are mocking him. He pays attention to this. When in NYC, I am going to stand out at Trump tower with a big sign that says “Not My President.” We cannot give in because we are scared of angering him. He is already a lunatic. He is going to do himself in with his craziness, and the more we can antagonize him, the better.

      • Jaime says:

        Following that Twitter link, I happened across a similar site you guys may also enjoy. I know i laughed (and cried). It’s “areyousorryyet.com” (hope it makes it past moderation)

  14. Nancy says:

    I listened to that wretched Kellyanne Conway defending her money maker. Make her go away. Meryl isn’t just an actress, she is a strong woman who has been married forty years and is a concerned citizen of the United States like the rest of us. She spent three or four minutes making a statement about a man with disabilities being ridiculed publically. That sociopath had a sixteen minute predawn twitter rant on what an overrated an actress she is. Why is this happening. On topic, George is just preaching to the choir.

  15. detritus says:

    I would take Clooney for pres over Cheeto.

    Clooney for Pres, who gets to be his running mate? Michael Shannon? Meryl Streep?
    Scratch that. Meryl for president, Clooney can be her Biden.

  16. Eric says:

    I can’t recall there being any evidence that Il Douche watched the GG. I’m sure someone alerted him right away to the Meryl rip session later (due to his relatively late response to it).
    Of course, Emperor Zero’s tweets re Meryl is deflecting confirmation hearings this week and his announcement that his SIL will hold a key senior advisory role in the WH.
    Orange Julius Caesar is unfortunately doing a splendid job of making everyone look the other way whilst creating a damaging cabinet for America. I’m pretty sure Bannon is pulling those strings for him.

    • Who ARE These People? says:

      I think he goes to bed early, then wakes up in the middle of night and catches up with things.

      • Macscore says:

        Good point, @Eric. Bannon’s probably pulling the strings, knowing that the country will be utterly distracted by the latest tweet from Twitterhead, and people just won’t notice, oh, I don’t know, just little things, like this:
        “According to an official within the Department of Energy, this past Friday, the President-elect’s team instructed the head of the National Nuclear Security Administration and his deputy to clean out their desks when Trump takes office on January 20th. The NNSA is the $12 billion-a-year agency that ‘maintains and enhances the safety, security and effectiveness of the U.S. nuclear weapons stockpile.’ … This is the first time since its creation the agency won’t have anyone in charge.” [Source: DailyKos, Mon. Jan 9th]
        Nothing to see here. Nothing at all. Move along.

      • SusanneToo says:

        Don’t worry, Macscore, I’m sure donald will be getting advice from Pooty Pooh on the nukes.

  17. Maya says:

    Can we expect the traitor to attack Clooney as well?

    But of course not because Trump is only afraid of strong intelligent women like Streep, Jolie, Hillary, Elizabeth Warren etc.

  18. MellyMel says:

    Homegirl is definitely preggo! Congrats to them! And I agree with him…I don’t support President Snow, never will and I don’t think he’ll do any good for this country but (and as much as I would love to rub it in his supporter’s faces) I hope he doesn’t destroy everything.

  19. jwoolman says:

    Her statements involving something Trump did (she didn’t even mention his name) was not partisan or political. It was not directed again Trump’s policies, whatever they are at a particular point in time (hard to tell, actually). It addressed a much bigger problem about the way we deal with one another and the role of the media, all relevant to the occasion. It is never inappropriate to remind us how important it is to play nice and tell the truth.

    The fact that so many people interpreted it as “political” shows us how serious the problem is today. Any plea for kindness and civility and truth-telling and protecting truth-tellers is interpreted as partisan politics. This is not normal. (My new catch phrase for the next four years, I’m afraid.)

    Amal does look like there might be a baby brewing beneath that lovely flowery fabric. Glad for them!

    About the potential change in world dynamics with p*ssygrabbing corrupt conman Trump … they are real and Putin is salivating waiting for comrade Trump’s reign. Destabilized democracies is what Olympic cheater Putin lives for so he can make Russia great again. Putin is more committed to Russia’s greatness than Trump is to America. I hope Trump is impeached for treason eventually.

      Thanks for the link. This is a complete travesty. It’s almost like a lack of experience, education and blatant conflicts of interest are the main prerequisites for an appointment in this administration. Wow.

        The trumpists are disgusting. As for ambassadorships – as a matter of form all ambassadors hand in resignations effective 1/20, but, in reality, usually only political apointees actually leave, while career ambassadors will stay for months or sometimes a few years. But, no, the trumpees have ordered ALL ambassadors to VACATE, to GTFO, effective noon, 1/20/17. Doesn’t matter if they have children in school(Melania/Barron, anyone?), doesn’t matter if there’s no replacement named, just vicious meanness. I thought that I hated Nixon, Reagan, Cheney, but I obviously didn’t know what hatred was in those halcyon days.

        @Susannetoo, the thing with the ambassadors is going to bite him when there is nobody officially running those places and there is no guarantee he’ll even have anyone in place at state.

        Although I will welcome the return of Caroline Kennedy to the JFK Library. The place has had a rough year or two and could do with her setting things right again.

    *rubs Hands like Birdman* OH YEAH BUDDY Mama’s finna get Off these Pregnant Haute Fashions! ( I for One Live!)

    George added to the Pile of Actors and such continually goading The Molester In Chief I see… People need to keep trolling his ass right and left into showing out in public, I NEED for the shortsighted, dumb, regressive morons that voted for him to continue to cringe until impeachment day

    Good for Clooney and Meryl. She is a citizen and had a right to take advantage of her celebrity platform the way Trump did during the entire campaign.

    Trump denies making fun of the reporter’s disability and media shows how he made similar gestures in regards to others. However, the “others” all happened AFTER he made fun of the reporter. He knew he did wrong and is trying to convince us that he is a fair and impartial insulter. Small matter but when media doesn’t make that simple observation about the timing, it makes you wonder about all the other tricks Trump gets away with that are more important. Media has to be like a fox not a rabbit.

    Guess I’m the only one not thinking she’s pregnant. She has looked like this before because of her bad posture. So that little bulge doesn’t convince me yet, only her fuller face might be an indication.

  25. Fa says:

    Why tabloids silent about this pregnancy is pretty obvious she is pregnant, normally when they see bumps they quick to report

  26. Jayna says:

    I’m not sure if she’s pregnant, but I’m happy for them if she is. Might there be a little Georgia or Georgina Clooney on the way?

  27. Miss V says:

    She definitely had a certain glow. She looks beautiful. Congrats to them!

  28. Sage says:

    if shes pregnant, congrats. I like her, but not him.

  29. Joannie says:

    So happy to see someone bringing attention to “The White Helmets”. They are truly amazing and so brave. They give me hope for humanity.

  30. Dlo says:

    Hey Clooney, aren’t you supposed to be acting?

  31. LaDiabla says:

    This is the most relaxed and content I’ve seen her look in a picture….so I do think she’s preggers. Happy for her if it’s true. It’s gonna be a major adjustment for ol’ George, but as one poster said above, he’s pulling a Cary Grant. I’m sure he’d be flattered by the comparison. Amal’s no dummy and would have negotiated for kids during that 45 minute proposal.

  32. Reece says:

    She’s so thin it could a baby or a couple burgers in the past week? *shrug*

    I realized the other day that there are less than 2 wks left to our decent into hell.

  33. april says:

    I say she’s pregnant. It just makes sense, they’ve been married long enough to now start a family and, of course, like most women, she would want to start a family. They’re not getting any younger. If it’s true, I’m very happy for them. Amal looks the happiest I’ve ever seen her look in photos. She looks very serene and almost angelic.

    • Jayna says:

      I never knew if she wanted kids or not, so I was a little surprised by this. I guess I was thinking if they did maybe a year from now. But they have been together over three years now. So if they want to have a child, considering their ages, it’s a good time to start.

      And, I agree, she does look serene. I almost posted earlier how content she looks, or peaceful. But “very serene” is an even better description.

      She wore that dress over a year ago, but she had a coat on. So it’s hard to tell if it made her look pregnant back then. I think she is, though.

  34. SusanneToo says:

    Haven’t commented on the couple yet, but Amal looks gorgeous and George looks a lot healthier than he has recently.

  35. Bliss51 says:

    I have to think the some 40% of the eligible electorate who did not vote will be flocking to the election booth in two and four years’ time. Crossing fingers.

  36. Achoo! says:

    One President at a time Mr Clooney, Trump isn’t supposed to be running the country for 10days. As for Meryl , great actress but a bit of a hypocrite considering she was more than happy to lead a standing ovation for a child rapist and now has the cheek to talk about empathy. That said good luck America , you will need all you can get, but cheer up , I have the feeling Trump won’t survive very long, one way or another. Back to George first it was ‘I’m never going to get married again’, then it was ‘I’m not going to have kids’ and thirdly, ‘I’ll never run for office’. I think he was expecting some kind of political appointment when Hillary got into office , now that’s on the back burner for another 4years he may just have to bite the bullet.

  37. Kat Matz says:

    I think she’s pregnant. She’s has the same look that Sophie Hunter(?) had with Benedict when he knocked her up (no disrespect). She is def with child! Congrats! Plus..she has a very content look on her face, she used to look starving, just saying.
