Hollywood might have more cases of Trump Derangement Syndrome than COVID-19.
Celebrities incessantly rail against the president with one slanderous remark after another.
But one Trump-deranged actor made a surprising comment about the 2020 election.
George Clooney is one of the most outspoken liberals in Hollywood.
He champions every Democrat cause while slamming Republicans any chance he gets.
His anti-Republicans only intensified during the Trump administration.
Clooney teamed up with Barack Obama to fundraise for Joe Biden in the 2020 election, but Clooney said something eye-opening about the election.
During an interview with The New York Times, Clooney said Trump would have won the election had he worn a mask.
“Had Trump come out at the very beginning and said, ‘We’re all going to wear masks because it’s the right thing to do and it’s going to save a lot of lives,’ the whole country would have gotten behind him and he would have been re-elected. But he thought it would affect his economy, so he chose to say it didn’t exist. And now we’re going to have 350,000 people dead.”
First, putting the blame of 350,000 dead on Trump is asinine.
Nearly 1.8 million people around the world are dead.
The entire globe has been touched by COVID, and the United States is already one of the most maks-compliant countries.
Western Europe, which locked down hard, has experienced death rates on par with or worse than the United States.
There are also multiple studies that challenge the efficacy of masks.
But Clooney’s statement is an admission that Biden was a weak candidate.
He couldn’t run against Trump’s record, so he had to run on panic and fear about the virus.
But it was the left who ripped Trump for banning travel from China at the outset of the pandemic.
Democrats ridiculed him for trying to sensationalize the virus and deflect from the stories being written about the sham impeachment.
Even Dr. Anthony Fauci said the virus was on par with the seasonal flu back in February.
The cult of masks is all about compliance, and not about science.
However, Clooney is still forgetting that the media would’ve found another reason to attack Trump.
If Trump had been pro-mask and pro-lockdown, the press would’ve called him an authoritarian who was using the virus to seize more power.
The so-called mainstream media would’ve attacked Trump for shutting down the economy and exacerbating other health issues.
The Democrats and their media allies reflexively take the opposite issue of Trump.
The situation would not have been any different had the issue of masks been off the table.
The Democrats will do anything for power, so flip-flopping is just a small price to pay.
But at least Clooney admitted Trump was likely on the path to victory before a once-in-a-lifetime pandemic hit.
