Every now and then you hear from some Hollywood simpleton who dares to criticize Obama, MATT DAMON prominent among them, but it’s safe to say the overwhelming majority of entertainers will still blindly follow their hero, regardless of the damage he does to the country.
Case in point, celebutard George Clooney, who primary cause is Darfur. Now although Obama hasn’t lifted a finger to do anything about that situation, here he comes to chastise those who soured on his hero.
Though Damon’s remarks about the president have been the most pointed, other celebrities have expressed disappointment, or at least mild disillusionment.
“I love the president like most of us,” Sean “Diddy” Combs told Source magazine this year. “I just want the president to do better.”
And will.i.am, creator of that viral video that ended with the word “HOPE,” told The New York Times earlier this year: “I don’t want to hope anymore.” Asked if he was disappointed in Obama, he said: “I don’t feel disappointed. I feel like, Argggh! Speak louder! I feel like, Do something!”
What about core Obama celebrity supporters Clooney and Winfrey? Far from being disillusioned with Obama, Clooney said recently: “I’m disillusioned by the people who are disillusioned by Obama.”
“Democrats eat their own,” the actor said. “I’m a firm believer in sticking by and sticking up for the people whom you’ve elected.” He went on to list the accomplishments of the Obama administration, wondering why Democrats weren’t selling them better.
He listed Obama’s accomplishments? That shouldn’t have taken too long. Clooney sounds like a cult member who’d never dare challenge the cult leader. He’d be a natural fit in North Korea.
