Clooney Hopes Trump Presidency Won't Spawn 'Terrible Things'

Monday, 09 January 2017 06:08 PM

LONDON (AP) — George Clooney didn't vote for Donald Trump and doesn't think he's the right choice to run the United States.

But he hopes Trump succeeds in office, because "when the president of the United States fails, really terrible things happen."

Clooney is one of the most politically outspoken actors in Hollywood, and he defended fellow star Meryl Streep on Monday after the president-elect slammed her for comments at the Golden Globe Awards.

Trump tweeted that Streep is "overrated" and a "flunky" of Hillary Clinton.

Clooney said that "I support her right forever" to speak out.

At reception in London for Syria rescue-workers documentary "The White Helmets," the actor said he has been active in politics since he was 12 — and has no intention of stopping just because he is famous.
