George Clooney, actor and outspoken liberal, recently tried to defend his Hollywood colleague Meryl Streep after she issued a politically-charged anti-Donald Trump speech at the Golden Globes.
Trump, as usual, took to social media to respond to the actress’s insults and called her “overrated,” which apparently offended Clooney, who in turn sarcastically asked Trump a rhetorical question, but he obviously forgot one important detail before doing so.
“Aren’t you supposed to be running the country?” Clooney said to Trump at a reception hosted by the Clooney Foundation for Justice on Monday, according to People magazine.
Actually, Mr. Clooney, President Barack Obama is still the one supposedly running the country. Trump doesn’t take office for several more days.

We’re ready for Obama’s term to be over, too, but that doesn’t change the fact that he is still in the White House and running the country … into the ground.
More disturbing was the fact that Clooney was actually considered one of the more intelligent figures in Hollywood, and despite his liberal leanings can generally hold a respectable conversation about politics.
For example, when asked about Trump’s victory and how to heal the country following a very divisive election season, the actor had some credible insight:
“We have to get back to talking and telling the truth, understanding that not everybody is an enemy, and that not all people who voted for Donald Trump are bigots — not even the overwhelming number of people who voted for Donald Trump,” Clooney said, according to Deadline.com. “They’re disenfranchised, they’re mad, they’re losing their jobs.”
However, in the midst of the liberal media’s quest to attack Trump any and every moment possible, Clooney, too, got caught up in the insanity and made a dumb mistake in his attempt to discredit the president-elect.
