Wasn’t it amusing to hear about the rift between casino magnate Steve Wynn and actor/ Tequila salesman George Clooney in regard to his so-called “friend” President Barack Obama. Typically, like the high strung, naïve child actors are, George stormed off.
Sure the president is his good friend because of all the money he raises for the Obama agenda. And he, like other Hollywood stars, make unusually large sums of money manufacturing, for the most part, mediocre material. They like talking the talk( especially when someone else is writing the words for them, making them sound far more intelligent than they are). But how about walking the walk?
They seem to be at one with every liberal cause. They happily sit at fund-raising dinners sometimes for as much as $100,000 a ticket. Why not take a portion of these exorbitant dinner prices and help the poor and downtrodden at the local level and eliminate the middle men and women who spend most of the booty disseminating propaganda and consolidating power.
Prior to the heated exchange. Wynn, Clooney and partner Rande Gerber, was discussing future business opportunities supplying Wynn hotels and casinos with Casamigos Tequila, a company Clooney and Gerber are affiliated with.
Gerber intimates that the argument was not about politics, “it was about George standing up for a friend.” Everything about Obama is politics. If Mr. Wynn wished to express his displeasure with the Obama administration he has the right. I’m surprised Mr. Clooney didn’t go to DEFCON 1 and assert Mr. Wynn was a racist the default comment when anyone criticizes this woeful administration.
All politicians have two things in common they want power and they want legacy. In Obama’s case the subterfuge has reached critical mass. With his poll numbers dropping precipitously and his cache abroad diminishing, George has his work cut out for him if he wants to stand up for his friend.
In the meantime, Mr. Wynn should re-think serving Casamigos in his establishments. And taking a page out of the Rev. Sharpton playbook , we should all boycott George’s tequila.
