George Clooney Defended Obama’s Honor In A Boozy Argument In Las Vegas

  • After some tequila shots, George Clooney and casino mogul Steve Wynn got into a drunken argument about politics in Las Vegas after Wynn was “pushing and pushing” and “provoking George” by criticizing the current government. Clooney kept his cool until Wynn called the president an “asshole,” at which point Clooney said, “President Obama is my friend. Don’t talk about him like that.” Then Wynn replied, “Your friend is an asshole” and Clooney responded, “No! You are an asshole” and got up and left. I’m with Clooney on this one (and everything).
