The Brit press, in the form of their Daily Mail, tells us that Obama has a new advisor: George Clooney. I haven’t followed Clooney’s acting career, but he is a Hollywood actor who played a doctor on television and more recently was involved in a motorcycle accident.
The London tabloid gives us some specifics:
[H]e is also sharing with Obama his strong opinions on Iraq and the Middle East.
Sources say the actor has tried to hide the pair’s friendship for fear his Left-wing views and playboy image would hurt the Presidential hopeful’s bid for the White House.
But Democratic Party insiders have revealed that Clooney and Obama regularly send texts and emails to each other and speak by phone at least twice a week.
[ . . .]
‘George has been giving him advice on things such as presentation, public speaking and body language and he also emails him constantly about policy, especially the Middle East.
‘George is pushing him to be more “balanced” on issues such as US relations with Israel.
‘George is pro-Palestinian. And he is also urging Barack to withdraw unconditionally from Iraq if he wins.
So, Clooney is advising Obama several times a week to support the jihad and to surrender in Iraq, both standard Hollywood positions but not exactly pearls of wisdom.
How long until Clooney goes under the bus?
