Hollywood star George Clooney and his humanitarian wife Amal are a liberal power couple who will stop at nothing to ensure Donald Trump will not be reelected in 2020. Amal showed this once again on Wednesday night when she hurled some truly nonsensical attacks at Trump while she spoke at the United Nations Correspondents Association Awards in New York.
Daily Mail reported that Amal blamed Trump for the fact that journalists are allegedly “under attack” in other nations all over the world.
“The U.S. President has given such regimes a green light and labeled the press in this country the ‘enemy of the people,'” Amal said. “And of course two months ago a Washington Post journalist, Jamal Khashoggi, walked into a consulate in Istanbul and was brutally tortured to death.”
Donald Trump did not kill Khashoggi
It’s truly ridiculous for Amal to blame Trump for what happens to journalists in other countries. If her good buddy Barack Obama were still in office, she undoubtedly would be arguing that he had nothing to with the death of Khashoggi. Trump has no control over what happens in oppressive regimes like Saudi Arabia and North Korea, and it’s laughable to suggest that these countries would care at all what the president of the United States says about American journalists.
The Clooney’s never blamed their friend Barack
It is also insane to compare the way Trump has treated the media in the U.S. to the torture of a journalist in Saudi Arabia. All Trump has done to the American media is rightfully point out that they are incredibly biased against him. Outlets like CNN and MSNBC have shown time and time again that they will stop at nothing to attack Trump to secure ratings for themselves, and he has simply defended himself by pointing this out. When Obama was in office, he often spoke out against Fox News for attacking him, yet the Clooneys seemed to have no issue with the president bashing the press when he did this.
This serves as a reminder that wealthy liberals like George and Amal Clooney have no shame when it comes to attacking Trump as they’re willing to go so far as accusing him of being responsible for a murder abroad just to potentially stop him from being reelected.
