Bernie Sanders blasts George Clooney/Hillary Clinton fundraiser as ‘obscene’

Bernie Sanders is calling out Hollywood’s liberal elite over their undue influence on American politics. Specifically, he’s calling out Hollywood liberals who aren’t supporting him.

Sanders recently blasted George Clooney, aka the worst Batman in movie history, for charging Clinton supporters big bucks for admission to fundraisers he is holding for the potential Deleter-In-Chief. Yahoo News reports:

“It is obscene that Secretary Clinton keeps going to big-money people to fund her campaign,” Sanders said in an interview on CNN’s “State of the Union” Sunday.

Clinton is asking donors for $353,400 for two seats at the head table with herself, Clooney and his wife, Amal, at the April 15 event in San Francisco. The next night, the Clooneys will host a $33,400 per person fundraiser for Clinton at the couple’s Los Angeles home.

“I have a lot of respect for George Clooney. He’s a great actor. I like him,” Sanders said. “But this is the problem with American politics … Big money is dominating our political system. And [my supporters and I] are trying to move as far away from that as we can.”

Now, Sanders may be a socialist, but we have to give him credit on this one. He’s no hypocrite on the issue: attending one of his fundraisers costs, on average, between $15 to $50 to attend.
