“Yes. I think it’s an obscene amount of money,” Clooney agreed.
Clooney mentioned that protesters turned up in San Francisco, some of them reportedly throwing dollar bills at Clooney when he arrived at the fundraiser.
“And they’re right to protest,” the actor said. “They’re absolutely right. It is an obscene amount of money. The Sanders campaign, when they talk about it, is absolutely right. It’s ridiculous that we should have this kind of money in politics. I agree completely.”
Clooney said he walked over to talk to the protesters, and one called him a “corporate shill,” which is “one of the funnier things you could say about me,” he told Chuck Todd.
“And then he just said, ‘You sucked as Batman,’ and I was like, ‘Well, you kind of got me on that one.’ And then I walked away.””
