The recent father of twins and husband to Amal Clooney discussed his upcoming directorial turn in the film Suburbicon, which explores racial tensions in 1950s suburbia. He compared the film's political landscape with that of the present day.
When it came to the subject of Trump, Clooney, who has been known to be active in Democratic politics, put it bluntly:
“It becomes increasingly clear how in over his head and incapable this man is of being president of the United States. The good news is that our other institutions — meaning press, finally, and judges and senators — have proven that the country works. There is a check and balance.”
