Suburbicon: George Clooney's Latest Film Insults All Trump Supporters

• DC Closthesline

George Clooney may be a talented actor be he's also an insufferable and arrogant narcissist.

How else can you explain his decision to paint everyone who voted for Donald Trump, or supports a different vision of America's future, as an angry racist?

In an interview with the Daily Beast Clooney talks about the possibility of running for political office while openly hoping that "anyone" besides Trump be our next President.

He also discussed his upcoming movie "Suburbicon" which depicts a mob of white suburbanites angrily protesting as a black family moves into their neighborhood.

The film looks back at race relations in suburban 1950's America and tells the true story of the first black family to move into Levittown, Pennsylvania.

It's a sad reminder of what race relations in our nation used to look like, but listen to how Clooney explains how he came up with the idea for such an ugly film…

"The genesis of the screenplay [came when] I was watching a lot of [Trump] speeches on the campaign trail about building fences and scapegoating minorities, and I started looking around at other times in our history when we've unfortunately fallen back into these things, and I found this story that happened in Levittown, Pennsylvania…

When you talk about 'Making America Great Again,' America being great everyone assumed was the Eisenhower '50s, and it was great if you were a white, straight male, but other than that it probably wasn't so great. It's fun to lift up that curtain and look underneath that thin veneer and see some of the real problems that this country has yet to completely come to terms with."
