Another dumb right-wing website that has no understanding of facts.

Following the sale of immigration activist George Clooney’ s tequila company for a whopping $1 billion, a number of thoughtful Twitter users have come up with a splendid suggestion; why not use some of that money to care for refugees?
According to The New York Times, Casamigos – the tequila company Clooney founded with two of his friends in 2013 – has sold to Diageo for $700 million in cash up front and $300 million should the brand perform well over the next 10 years.
“The transaction makes Mr. Clooney one of the most successful celebrity investors around,” the outlet states.
This, of course, places George Clooney in a prime position to support the Syrian refugees he and his wife, immigration lawyer Amal Clooney, have been so vocal about.
As Breitbart reported in February of 2016, the Clooneys visited German Chancellor Angela Merkel and praised her stance on immigration.
“You know, in the United States we aren’t doing enough,” George Clooney said following the meeting. “We are a little less involved than we should be.”
Clooney has also described Trump as a “xenophobic fascist” while his wife Amal has claimed Trump’s desire to tighten immigration regulations as unrepresentative of “U.S. values.”
Luckily for Amal and George, the massive sale of Casamigos – which will net them about $233 million – means they can do a great deal to take care of the refugees they love so much, as a number of Twitter users are currently pointing out.[size][ltr]

Quoting Breitbart is a dead giveaway of their politics. Typical snark from people who wouldn't lift a finger to help anyone different from themselves. They'd get off their high horse in a second if George offered some of that money to them.

Well it's pretty ironic ... considering that the man who they support in the White House has barely lifted a finger to support any worthy cause in his lifetime and has even lied and been called out by The Washington Post and The New York Times about his charitable giving!
