During an upcoming episode of KCRW's The Business weekly podcast, George Clooney commented briefly on the recent riots that took place at U.S. Capitol Hill in Washington D.C.
Referencing the way that pro-Trump supporters conducted themselves at the scene, Clooney told podcast host Kim Masters — who is The Hollywood Reporter's Editor-at-Large —"It's devastating to watch the people's house being desecrated in that way."
The Midnight Sky actor and director added, "But it is also a tremendous overreach in a way — everybody kept waiting for, what's the one thing, the straw that breaks the camel's back and it just seemed like that line just kept getting moved and moved and moved and outrage didn't even matter anymore, even to the point of calling the Secretary of State in Georgia and pressuring him. None of that seemed to matter. This mattered."







The actor went on to emphasize, "This puts Donald Trump, Donald Trump Jr. Ivanka, all of them, into the dustbin of history. That name will now forever be associated with insurrection." He then referenced how former White House Chief of Staff General Kelly said recently that if he was in the cabinet he would have voted for the 25th Amendment to remove Trump from office. "This is a big,  big difference," said Clooney. "If this is what it takes to set us on the right path, I think that, not that it's worth it, it's not worth it in any shape or form, but at least we should find something hopeful to come out of some of this disaster."
As the incident was taking place at the Capitol on Wednesday, Hollywood stars such as Sacha Baron Cohen, Ben Stiller, Sarah Silverman, Josh Gad and Cynthia Nixon took to social media to weigh in and call for immediate action to be taken. Tech companies including Facebook, Twitter and Twitch responded by temporarily freezing his accounts in the wake of the chaos.
On Thursday, former First Lady Michelle Obama released a lengthy statement, in which she expressed concern for the state of extremism and security in the U.S. "Now is the time for those who voted for this president to see the reality of what they’ve supported — and publicly and forcefully rebuke him and the actions of that mob," said Obama.


The full episode of KCRW's The Business with Clooney will post on Jan. 15.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, he told host Kim Masters that it is 'devastating to watch the people's house being desecrated in that way'.
During the podcast he noted former White House Chief of Staff General Kelly's admission that he would vote for the 25th Amendment if he were in the cabinet as a 'big difference'. 


While Clooney, whose wife Amal is a human rights lawyer, acknowledged none of the events which took place were 'worth it' he claimed it was a step in the right direction. 
He is of a number of celebrities who have spoken out against the actions of Trump supporters earlier this week.

The actor claimed the President's family name, including his son Donald Trump Jr. and daughter Ivanka, will 'forever be associated with insurrection'
Leading the messages on social media was Captain America actor Chris Evans, who penned: 'I'm speechless. Just think of the carnage had they not been white. So many people enabled this.'
Along with Chris, many others questioned the effectiveness of authorities on hand, stating that the response would have been significantly different if the rioters were black. Filmmaker Ava DuVernay shared a clip from the day's events, writing: 'The language of white supremacy is a language of cowardice disguised as dominance.'
A number of celebrities urged politicians to invoke the 25th amendment - which legislates for the Vice President to take control if the Commander-in-Chief is 'unable to discharge the powers and duties of his office' - and end the former Apprentice star's term two weeks earlier than planned.
Actor Armie Hammer wrote: 'Reported shots fired inside the house chambers. This is why we can't have nice things, you f***ing mouth breathers who stormed the capital ... It's a good thing this wasn't a BLM rally or else these a******s would have actual riot police to deal with.'

Other celebs called for the impeachment and removal of Trump, whose Twitter account was suspended in an unprecedented move, amid a series of tweets.
Sarah Jessica Parker tweeted: 'Unimaginable. Disgraceful. Shocking. But no surprise. So many to hold responsible. You know who you are. You dismissed the violent, divisive, cruel rhetoric. You made excuses. Cowards He/you are not leaders. We will try to re-build. You will try to live with yourselves.'
Chloë Grace Moretz blasted Senator Ted Cruz, tweeting: 'Look what you incentivized.'
