George on Trump

George Clooney: Donald Trump's comments about Mexican immigrants were 'idiotic'


The film-maker, at the Toronto film festival promoting political comedy Our Brand is Crisis, says history will laugh at the Republican presidential hopeful

George Clooney has said that Republican presidential hopeful Donald Trump’s description of Mexican immigrants as “rapists” and “criminals” was “idiotic”.
“Anybody who says as intolerant words as those should be laughed at and that’s pretty much what history will do,” Clooney said.

Trump is currently the front runner for the Republican nomination according to a CNN/ORC poll published this week. During his campaign he has repeatedly demonised Mexican immigrants, suggesting that they are drug smugglers and carriers of disease. Rick Perry, who today became the first candidate to drop out of the race, called Trump “a cancer on conservatism” during his time on the stump.
Clooney, who said he was wary of airing his political views too explicitly, was speaking at the Toronto film festival press conference for his new film as producer, Our Brand is Crisis. Directed by David Gordon Green, the film is a political comedy starring Sandra Bullock as an American election strategist who is invited to Bolivia to help a senator win a presidential election. It is based on the 2015 documentary of the same name by Rachel Boynton, which focused on the campaign marketing that helped Gonzalo Sánchez de Lozada win the Bolivian presidency in 2002.

Bullock said the film was about “big business and how we as a people are manipulated”. “We need to take start to take ownership back and look at things for what they really are, rather than what we’re being sold,” she said.

Her character, a quick-witted depressive with an alcohol addiction, was originally male, before she requested that Clooney and his co-producer, Grant Heslov, switch the part’s gender. Bullock and her co-star, Zoe Kazan, said it was significant that the character had no overt desire for children, nor an on-screen romantic relationship, though Kazan suggested this might have been because she was originally written as a man. “That’s not a great sign,” she said.
“Women aren’t just child-bearers,” said Bullock. “We have excitement about life and dreams and work. Sometimes that includes children and sometimes that doesn’t.
“We’re complex, crazy little creatures. We deserve to have stories that reflect that. And normalise that instead of it being a rarity. ‘Oh she’s intelligent? She wants to travel the world and do things for herself? Well, that’s weird’. That’s the way it’s played out for so long”.
Bullock implied that one way for women to get access to richer, less stereotypical roles might be to ask studios to switch the gender of parts written for men.
“We’re going to make 12 Angry Women next,” Clooney joked.
“We’d all be on the same cycle,” Bullock replied.
Clooney was asked which of Bullock’s roles he would play, if he had the chance to re-write any of her characters as a man.
“We all know it would be Miss Congeniality,” he said.
“Have you seen his legs?!” Bullock asked.
Our Brand is Crisis was given three stars by the Guardian’s Benjamin Lee after it’s premiere in Toronto last night. In a review that praised Bullock’s “top form” performance, Lee said: “Her comic timing, wasted in lesser, plane-ready comedies, is on top form and she imbues her neurotic character with more than the thinly sketched quirks provided on the page”.

I just watched the video of the press conference from pan's link and really liked it. Just for everybody: The actual press conference starts after about ten minutes, before you just see the title: " tiff press conference our brand is crisis" and hear people talk.

Well, George sure looks in his element here. Happier...like life has been injected back in him. Makes a great couple with Sandra Bullock, just going by visual aspect alone.  Amazing chemistry...Probably intimate friends.  Wink 

Clooney's in full on promotional mode for this film he produced.  Generate maximum publicity for Out Brand Is Crisis.   Same formulae: Headlining controversy. Like the Trump offensive comment about Mexicans from June 2015.  Got Clooney positive coverage.... perfectly timed 3 months later. Just in time for his flm release.

I'm on the internet on and off nearly all day, and while I've seems tories about the film and Sandy, the first I heard about any comments he made re: Trump was here.  Pretty poor "strategy" if you ask me. Rolling Eyes

Anyone who has followed George for 20 plus years will
know that he and Sandy have been good friends,
as they said, for many years. 
Its been described by Sandy as a non sexual friendship.

The press conference was very enlightening regarding
the film, but I felt sorry for the young lady Zoe who
was almost ignored.

Maybe a generic Google search of the name "George Clooney" will give you that as a return.  
Got him abundant press.  Not just the gossip sites.

Clever strategy on the part of his PR handlers who possibly suggested /preselected this question about a comment Donald Trump made 3 months ago.
All perfectly co-ordinated with the presidential campaign trajectory...and the thematic content of the film....

Even a story like "Most Beautiful Woman of the Year Sandra Bullock stars in film by Sexiest Man of the Year (Twice!!)wouldn't have captured so much publicity as the Trump criticism.   http://www.people.com/people/package/article/0,,20913899_20915288,00.html

...
Yes, sure, George Clooney, who professed for years to guard his private life like a minotaur, would allow the public to know details about the level of intimacy of his interpersonal relationships.

Agree a bit, Jo. Same applies for Grant. 

Zoe Kazan is the granddaughter of Elia Kazan, famous director and producer and in her own right is a scriptwriter, playwright and Broadway actress too, and in one part of the conference Sandra Bullock was deferring to her about her experiences as a woman in these fields. 

And I guess everybody knows that at a short press conference the press will want to talk to the big players.............

(Edited link)


Lots of other media coverage of the press conference, including downplaying the trivia of Sandra Bullock's "roots" as a blonde. Or discussing social issues like gender roles...& politics & sardonic humor that the legendary Elia Kazan's granddaughter elaborated on...

http://exclaim.ca/Film/article/sandra_bullock_george_clooney_zoe_kazan_discuss_our_brand_is_crisis


But the Trump comment generated sensationalism. If there's a comeback by Trump, then even more of a highlight on the film...
