George Clooney gets backlash for meeting with Merkel; ‘10,000 refugees a year not enough’ for US

While being interviewed at the Berlin International Film Festival, actor George Clooney once again became President Obama’s mouthpiece and remarked that the United States should take in more Syrian refugees.

Clooney indicated that he and his wife, Amal Clooney, spoke with German Chancellor Angela Merkel to discuss the refugee problem earlier that day.

The enthusiasm Merkel once had for accepting refugees from the war-torn areas of the Middle East has since dimmed as financial and social problems associated with the program continue to escalate.

“We just wanted to ask her what we can do, what our involvement should be, what Hollywood’s involvement should be, and what the United States should be doing as well,” he said.

“The United States needs to do more, as we know,” Clooney said. “10,000 refugees a year is not enough, that’s clear.”

That’s all fine and dandy for A-listers Clooney and spouse, who have residences in Italy, Mexico and England. If the situation becomes as much a sticky wicket here as it is in Germany, they have their choice of homesteads.

Absent that, he can always hire additional armed security as he bemoans the Second Amendment, private gun ownership and middle America’s love affair with weaponry.

Watch the clip.

All in all, social media wasn’t amused — not only with Clooney’s suggestion of admitting more refugees, but also with his belief that he has the background to discuss affairs of state with heads of state.

    George Clooney has indicated that he hopes to run for president of the U.S. someday but there was no need now as Obama is the smartest person in the country. His marriage, at his late age, is also to assure he has a wife when he decides to run (even one much younger than himself) that he has been married to for awhile because that shows he is a ‘stable family man’. It always gets me that people who make their living pretending to be someone else think that makes them world experts on everything. Clooney use to be an excellent actor, now he is just another elitist hack.

    Should I choose to listen to an actor’s view on issues, I will choose Morgan Freeman who believes in keeping his talents honed, and has a realistic view on what is going on in the country.

    Given the fact, that all of his most recent movies have bombed, why is this guy still getting jobs?

    1. TAK1 says:

      He is already stinking rich. Best to just ignore him, he would hate that.

  3. MILAN68 says:

    he too believes if you’re nice to muslims they won’t kill you and it’ll defeat ISIS.. people like him is destroying our country and Europe..

      Maybe he can sacrifice his wife for a Rape Fest.

  4. roccolore says:

    Clooney is a hypocrite who doesn’t have to worry about ISIS apologists trying to kill him.

    1. Tiger says:

      He is an idiot who doesn’t have a clue about ISIS.

  5. tsigili says:

    Like the majority of Hollywood, Clooney is treasonous to America.

  6. TAK1 says:

    Why does America idolize America-hating hypocrites like Clooney, who make their fortune from the dimwits who watch their movies? Look at his oversize wealth and oversize view of himself. I speak not from jealousy but out of contempt for him and his greedy comrades in Hollywood.

  7. Tiger says:

    Here is what you can do. Understand the problem, Watch the video of the 75% men running rampant across all the countries. Have some insight into the situation or hey Clooney you and your wife take um in, work at the refugee camps and by the way give them your millions.

    Or shut up clown.
