    Steve Bannon has called himself a “street fighter,” but George Clooney has another way to describe the controversial former advisor to President Donald Trump: a “failed f—ing screenwriter.”

    Speaking to journalists at the Toronto International Film Festival on Friday to promote his new film, the racially-charged Suburbicon, Clooney unloaded on Bannon, who will appear on Sunday’s 60 Minutes for his first televised interview since leaving the White House last month.

    “I like picking fights. I like that Breitbart News wants to have my head. I’d be ashamed 10 years from now if those weaselly little putzes, whose voices are getting a lot higher every week as this presidency starts to look worse and worse weren’t still [after me],” Clooney said. “Steve Bannon is a failed f—ing screenwriter, and if you’ve ever read [his] screenplay, it’s unbelievable. Now, if he’d somehow managed miraculously to get that thing produced, he’d still be in Hollywood, still making movies and licking my ass to get me to do one of his stupid-ass screenplays.”

    (Hell, maybe BANNON couldn't get in any other 'kind of action' with Weinstein and he's pissed about that)

    I keep repeating, you just can't make this shit up!

    "We are extremely honored to be in business with the new Weinstein Company,” Bannon told investors,
    according to a transcript obtained by the Associated Press.


    REVEALED: Steve Bannon was in business with Harvey Weinstein before slamming Democrats for taking donations

    Trump administration chief strategist Steve Bannon (Screen cap).
    DON'T MISS STORIES. FOLLOW RAW STORY!


    Former Trump adviser Steve Bannon reportedly profited from a business relationship with alleged sexual predator Harvey Weinstein before he slammed Democrats for taking donations from the movie mogul.

    The Associated Press reported on Thursday that Bannon participated in an “ill-fated joint venture” with Weinstein in 2005. Weinstein’s company owned 70 percent of Genius Products, a DVD distribution company, while Bannon served as chairman.

    The Associated Press pointed out that the Breitbart chief had recently criticized Democrats for connections to Weinstein.

    The ties to Weinstein open Bannon up to charges of hypocrisy given Breitbart’s intense focus on the scandal and its political fallout. In recent days the site has featured a blog with live updates on the story; headlines calling out Obama, Clinton and top Democrats for their ties to the producer; and stories attacking other news outlets for failing to cover the scandal with the same ferocity as Breitbart...

    Here's the difference.

    Hollywood knew what Weinstein was doing, bannon didn't.

    He would be defending Weinstein with enthusiasm if he were a Repiblican.

    We know George,his father, Nick and Aunt,Rosemary Clooney pretty well around here. Nick,,a long time TV personality,watched George grow up. Rosemary reach stardom with Bing Crosby.

    Both Clooney are long time Democratic backers. Both men are big on empathy.

    Yet he knew what Trump did and worked for him anyway, to get him elected by voters who knew what Trump did too.

    Bannon was part of the HOLLYWOOD that knew what Weinstein was doing, according to you.

    Bannon was not very astute was he? Since "Hollywood knew" what Weinstein was doing according to that poster.
