“George Clooney hasn’t shied away criticizing President Donald Trump since the shock victor took office in January.
“The actor and filmmaker called Trump a “Hollywood elitist” in February for reaping financial benefits from his work in television and film, and recently said that the president was “in over his head” and incapable of fulfilling his duties.
“And on Saturday, Clooney jokingly threw his hat in the ring to succeed Trump while promoting his new film Suburbicon at the Venice Film Festival.
“’Would I like to be the next president? Oh, that sounds like fun,’” said Clooney in response to a question at a press conference, Variety reported.”
