    George Clooney slams ‘obscene’ sums of money in White House race

    Open borders activist and Hollywood actor George Clooney, who hosted big-money fundraisers for Hillary Clinton in California this weekend, has slammed the "obscene" sums of money in U.S. politics in an interview with NBC News, one day after he and his wife hosted a Hillary Clinton fundraiser with a price tag of up to $353,400 per couple.

    "We had some protesters last night when we pulled up in San Francisco and they're right to protest. They're absolutely right. It is an obscene amount of money," Clooney said.

    Bernie Sanders, a U.S. Senator from Vermont and Hillary Clinton's rival in the race for the Democratic nomination to run for the White House in the Nov. 8 election, criticized the former secretary of state over the big-ticket event.

    "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.

    The brave actor proceeded to blast the Republicans running for president, saying, "Trump and Cruz are making this a campaign of fear. We have to be afraid of everything. We have to be afraid of refugees. We have to be afraid of Muslims. We have to be afraid of minorities.”
