I find it rather ironic that George & Amal Cloony, who have been among the most vocal and active celebrity advocates for open borders and the free flow of refugees are moving back to his mansion in Studio City, California, after deeming his 17th century mansion in Sonning, England not safe for his expanded family (twins born in June), hat-tip Breitbart.com. Clooney in fact, hired former secret service agents to assess security at all of his several properties and the California property was deemed the most secure.
England has been rocked by terrorist attacks in recent months (22 people killed at the Ariana Grande concert last month) and the British government as recently as May disclosed that 23,000 known jihadi terrorists are believed to be residing in Britain. I know for a fact that Clooney has had to curtail visits to Lake Como after a huge migrant camp was established next to his €9M (9 million Euro) home in Italy after the Swiss closed off their border to refugees.
But as recently as February of last year Clooney met privately with German Chancellor Angela Merkel, and praised the German leader’s acceptance of refugees from Syria and other countries. Whoops, that’s kind of back-fired for everyone involved.
Naturally George has been an outspoken critic of Trump, telling The Guardian in a March 2016 interview that he believes Trump to be a “xenophobic fascist” and an “opportunist.” He previously described Trump’s immigration policy proposals as “idiotic” and “intolerant.” What say you now Georgie?
