Amal Clooney Is 'Perplexed' by Donald Trump, Says Hillary Clinton Beating Him Would Send 'a Very Positive Mess
By John Boone
Amal Clooney has some harsh words for Donald Trump -- expressed elegantly, of course.
The human rights lawyer appeared on BBC News and admitted that she doesn't understand Donald Trump's popularity. "I'm probably as perplexed as you are," she said of the Republican frontrunner.
"He has a really high negative rating, and I don't think he's going to get much of the women's vote as a result of that," Amal explained, noting that it's still early in the election season.
"If at the end of all of this he gets beaten by the person who becomes the first female president of the United States, I think that would send a very positive message from the electorate back to him as to what they really think of those points of views," she added.
The 38-year-old activist went on to blast Trump's views on Mexican and Muslim immigrants, something her husband, George Clooney, also criticized when he called the GOP candidate a "xenophobic fascist."
"He kept saying 'they' only want jihad, 'they' don’t believe in our way of life, 'they' don't respect our system," Amal noted. "When he says 'they,' and you watch the media coverage afterward, people, I think, should have been saying, 'Do you mean the 1.5 billion people around the world who fit that description? Do you mean the people who are U.S. citizens who are members of your military, who are the vast majority of whom are not extremists or violent in any way?'"
The Clooneys have made no secret of their support for Hillary Clinton, even throwing a fundraiser for the Democratic frontrunner in their home -- something the 54-year-old actor was criticized for when presidential hopeful Bernie Sanders found out it cost $33,400 per person to attend.
