Casino-man Steve Wynn may have nothing nice to say about top-gun actor George Clooney, of Team American fame, but we do. Clooney ROCKED in that movie and we won't let anybody say otherwise.
But as to Clooney's drunken behavior at a Wynn dinner, we'll let these Wynn comments float around the Internet for a while:
Wynn said Clooney “got drunk” from downing tequila shots and stormed off after delivering an F-bomb.At least we know there is one person out there that is still enamored with our dear leader.
[Clooney] “He called the president an asshole ... that is a fact ... I said the President was my longtime friend and then he said ‘your friend is an asshole.’ ... At that point I told Steve that HE was an asshole and I wasn’t going to sit at his table while he was being such a jackass.
“And I walked out. There were obviously quite a few more adjectives and adverbs used by both of us. Those are all the facts. It had nothing to do with politics and everything to do with character.”
Clooney took exception, Wynn said, when one of the CAA execs told a joke about former Soviet Union President Mikhail Gorbachev. “He stood up and threw a hissy fit” at the CAA guy, Wynn said in a telephone interview, his first comments on the dust-up.
“Then he sat down and started talking about the Affordable Care Act, and that’s when I spoke up,” said Wynn, a frequent critic of Obamacare. “He didn’t like that either. I think my discussion about the Affordable Care Act was the straw that broke the camel’s back.
“When he’s drinking, he considers himself a close personal buddy of the president."
“Clooney’s fun to be with when he’s sober,” Wynn added. “If you have a chance to drink with him, you want to get there early, and don’t stay late.
“Everybody who’s in my business, the casino business, knows to take actors with a grain of salt.”
