George Clooney continues his charitable giving now half a million dollars to the March for Our Lives. He and wife Amal will make an appearance at the gun control rally. Clooney is an ardent supporter of civil rights in places like Sudan with the still-going Not On Our Watch (They are still giving hundreds of thousands of dollars there to protect the South Sudan). But this may signal a new political move by him by actual going to Washington DC on March 24t.
Oprah Winfrey has just tweeted that she will join the Clooneys in their donation.
Clooney thanks to the sale of his Casamigas Tequila company for $1 billion now has the money to put behind causes he and Amal believe in. So this is a big deal but not uncommon for an actor who is passionate about the right causes.They gave $1 million last year to the Southern Poverty Law Center. And theyve said that in total they will donate $21 million to various causes.
George and Amals appearance at March for Our Lives will be key to this movement. He wont be speaking, however: his rep says only kids will be speaking at this event, no adults.
Will Clooney run for president? Last fall when he was promoting Suburbicon, Clooney said this: Would I like to be the next president? Oh, that sounds like fun. Can I just say that Id like anybody to be the next president of the United States. Right away, please, he joked.
Clooney, by the way, took in an Iraqi refugee last September in Kentucky. The refugee is now a student at the University of Chicago. Clooney said at the time: He was on this bus to Mosul, and ISIS shot the two bus drivers and said, Anybody who wants to go to college, we will shoot them, says Clooney. He survived and came to America. He got through all the checks, and once he got through those, it was like, Listen, we got your back. You want to get an education? You want to move your life forward? This is something that we can do.
Heres the mission statement: March For Our Lives is created by, inspired by, and led by students across the country who will no longer risk their lives waiting for someone else to take action to stop the epidemic of mass school shootings that has become all too familiar. In the tragic wake of the seventeen lives brutally cut short in Florida, politicians are telling us that now is not the time to talk about guns. March For Our Lives believes the time is now.
The March For Our Lives statement from George Clooney
Amal and I are so inspired by the courage and eloquence of these young men and women from Stoneman Douglas High School.
Our family will be there on March 24 to stand side by side with this incredible generation of young people from all over the country, and in the name of our children Ella and Alexander, were donating 500,000 dollars to help pay for this groundbreaking event.
Our childrens lives depend on it.

George is a poo poo liberal of the smelliest variety.
What’s the tax angle on these gifts?
So George Clooney will no longer perform in any movie that promotes of uses firearms, weapons, or explosives ?
Now, that would be a political statement !
I think he can't afford to put his money where his mouth is with "crumbs"!
His career would go in the can !
His movie career is based on violence and firearms !
who gives as crop? Trump will eat that dumb ass alive.
George Clooney is making his move as we had discussed a few months ago. I still believe that he is the real threat to President Trump’s agenda from the Democrat Party.
What Clooney is doing now is paying his dues so he can enter into the upper echelons of the DNC and amplify efforts on destruction of the 2nd amendment. This is necessary to transform America into the Liberal Fascist Utopian totalitarian state.
We are seeing the Clooney campaign equivalent of Obamas “ Dreams of my Father.” The Clooney book will be next. He has Oprah on board as well.
Clooney really believes a certain brand of liberal bullshit and how he can use it to make the US better with it.
Wonder if George will forgo any royalties, and will return any salary/royalties, from movies he’s made/produced/directed, that use guns in any capacity.
Trump v. Clooney debate. Pay per view. It would be another boost to the economy thanks to President Trump.
George’s ego and naiveté will get him into politics.
He will get pummeled and his ego will then get him out of it shortly after
George Clooney Signaling Political Move and no one cares
I thought he was a resident of Italy
He will get pummeled and his ego will then get him out of it shortly after>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
Hope you are right and thet Clooney’s “me toos” are waiting in the wings.
...and he’ll be reminded of all of his drunken exploits ... like the time he flipped off a woman at a restaurant who was having her picture taken with Fabio at a nearby table, part of a charity event Fabio was doing for the 11-99 Foundation, which benefits the widows and children of officers killed in the line of duty.
Drunken Georgie thought,that she was trying to photograph HIM ...
... Fabio then got in his face and liddle Georgie backed down ... and RAN OUT OF THE RESTAURANT REAL fast ... see Fabio is a REAL man - though a pretty one ;>) and could have pinned Georgie with his pinky ...
Man it was FUNNY reading about that ... here it is, from 2007 - the first link in the story will show you the photo:
Clooney should stick to making movies that I will never see.
Not-a-Clueney put the MoonBat signal up on the wall?
He’s (allegedly) closeted with a Muslim wife. He might be able to get a congressional seat in CA but he’s never getting elected president.
I'm not familiar with the name "Amal." In "Amahl and the Night Visitors," Amahl is a boy's name.
This moron has nothing left.
Every recent movie he starred in bombed.
And his movie Suburbacon, which he directed bombed too.
He is way overpaid.
