    Default Don't Call President Obama an Asshole around George Clooney

    George Clooney stormed away during his fancy Vegas dinner with hotel tycoon Steve Wynn after Wynn called Prez Obama an asshole.

    It sounds like an epic dinner. According to Wynn ... Clooney got drunk on tequila shots and when Wynn attacked the President ... he says George hurled an F-bomb and left.

    Clooney says Wynn was railing over the Affordable Care Act. He says "I said that the President was my longtime friend and then he said, 'Your friend is an asshole.'" Clooney adds, "At that point I told Steve HE was an asshole and that I wasn't going to sit at his table while he was being such a jackass."

    Wynn told the Las Vegas Review-Journal, "When he's [George] drinking, he considers himself a close personal buddy of the President."

    Wynn passes a lot of it off to alcohol, saying, "Clooney's fun to be with when he's sober ... If you have a chance to drink with him, you want to get there early, and don't stay late."

    For Clooney's part he says there were 9 people at the dinner 2 weeks ago at Botero restaurant at Wynn's Encore hotel, adding, "It had nothing to do with politics and everything to do with character."

    For Wynn's part, he says, "Everybody who's in my business -- the casino business -- knows to take actors with a grain of salt."

    You know who's an asshole, Wynn? People who make their living taking money from people who don't have a proper grasp of probability and statistics.

    I love that story. Clooney is almost an untouchable but Wynn's comments remind me of the way The Rat Pack used to insult each other.

    Wait, so people who go to casinos and blow their rent money on nickel slot machines are a) innocent victims and b) brain damaged to such a degree that they think GAMBLING means short term investment? C'mon.

    The story is great. I'd like to see tequila soaked Clooney.

    People expecting to win over the long term are intellectually limited and being taken advantage of to some extent, yes. I mean, that's a mathematical fact.

    I guess Steve Wynn didn't get the memo: If you essentially ruin a $130 million Picasso, due to sheer buffoonery (whilst trying to earn your serious-art-aficionado-not-just-a-moneyed-douchenozzle-bona fides, no less), you NEVAH get to call another human being an asshole. NEVAH.

    Don't call President Obama an asshole around George Clooney. Can I call him an asshole if I am not around George Clooney?

    Loving Jackie goes beyond political parties. IMO Obama has proved to be disappointing.

    Default George Clooney Unloads on Casino Owner Steve Wynn

    Don't mess with George Clooney.

    The actor, who got into a heated argument with Steve Wynn in Las Vegas last month, has released a statement to PEOPLE responding to the casino mogul's latest comments, this time to Market Makers on Bloomberg.

    The war of words dates back to April 23, when Wynn allegedly called President Obama an "a------" at a group dinner attended by Clooney. It was amped up Friday when Wynn, among other things, denied doing so and then ripped stars like Clooney as "molly coddled" and suggested Clooney had been drinking too much at the dinner.

    Here's Clooney's detailed response:

    "Steve Wynn and I have met three times, two times for dinner. That is the extent of our knowledge of one another, so I will refrain from trying to categorize him based on the little time we've spent together, but I will not let his version of the truth go unchallenged.

    "He now says he didn't call the president an 'a------.' That is false. He bellowed 'I voted for the a------,' and then called him the same thing several more times as the dinner came to an abrupt end."

    "Again there were eight people at the table, eight witnesses. I did in turn, call him the same body part, and walked out. Again he can make up whatever story he wants, but these are the facts. He said I drank 16 shots of tequila. I didn't drink one shot of tequila, not one. We were drinking but it was early and we still had two events to attend."

    "He said I live in a bubble. More of a bubble than Las Vegas? Honestly? He says I'm 'molly coddled,' that I'm surrounded by people who coddle me. I would suggest that Mr. Wynn look to his left and right and find anyone in his sphere that says anything but 'yes' to him. Emphatically. I did not attend a private boys' school, I worked in tobacco fields and in stock rooms, and construction sites. I've been broke more of my life than I have been successful, and I understand the meaning of being an employee and how difficult it is to make ends meet.

    "Steve is one of the richest men in the world and he should be congratulated for it, but he needs to take off his red sparkly dinner jacket and roll up his sleeves every once in a while and understand what most of the country is actually dealing with ... or at least start with the fact that you can't make up stories when eight people who are not on your payroll are sitting around you as witnesses."
