Kudos to his well-paid agent: Libtard George Clooney makes $40M as Nespresso spokesman

For those who decry “income inequality,” know that Clooney ain’t your man.

For those who love the Hollyweird type, know that nepotism plays an important role in obtaining gigs, especially if your acting skills suck.

And for those who love Obama know that, “at a certain point you’ve made enough money.”

From Daily Mail: George and Amal Clooney saw their wealth grow by £10million last year after the Hollywood star was named as the world’s highest-paid actor.

The glamorous couple, who are friends with Prince Harry and his wife Meghan, have a joint marital fortune of £270million, according to the Sunday Times Rich List.

Mr. Clooney, 58, has been paid $40million (£31million) to appear in Nespresso coffee adverts around the world and made £173million from the sale of a tequila company he co-founded, Casamigos, in 2017.

Mrs. Clooney, 41, has made an estimated £2million from her incredibly successful career as a human rights barrister.

Mrs. Clooney gave birth to twins Ella and Alexander in 2017, and the couple have a Thameside home in Berkshire.

They were among a host of celebrities to appear in this year’s Rich List, led by composer Andrew Lloyd Webber, whose fortune totals £820million, and former Beatle Sir Paul McCartney at £750million.

You go first, de Blasio: “US needs a program for actual redistribution of wealth”

When you gonna start redistributing some of YOUR $1.5 MILLION net worth, Comrade? Because last time I looked, you and your commie wife gave only $350 to charity in 2017. Typical taxpayer, money-grabbing demorat…

As reported by NY Post: While exploring a run for president in Nevada, Mayor Bill de Blasio endorsed a committee to study reparations for descendants of slaves and then went further — saying that the country needs “a program of actual redistribution” of wealth.

A progressive activist asked the mayor his position on reparations at an event in Las Vegas Friday following the endorsement of the compensation plan by other presidential contenders like Elizabeth Warren.

“There’s no question that the issue of reparations has to be taken seriously,” said de Blasio, whose Vegas area barnstorming continues today, stating a clear, public position on the topic for the first time.

“I do believe the way to do it is to form a very public commission and say, ‘What is the way to address this problem once and for all?’”

But, he added, there needs to be a “bigger discussion about income inequality and oppression of other groups including Latinos, Native Americans, Asian and women,” he said at the event organized by the immigrant advocacy group Make the Road.

“I think we’re going to need something bigger even in a way, broader even in a way, then some of the ideas that have been put out there,” he said to the approximately 35 attendees.

“I think a program of actual redistribution which includes much heavier taxes on the wealthy,” he said. “The ultimate resolution has to be profoundly economic,” de Blasio said.

The redistribution comment went further than the message de Blasio has been honing since his state of the city speech in January—that “there’s plenty of money in this city, it’s just in the wrong hands.” During his out-of-city jaunts to early primary states de Blasio has swapped the word “city” for “world” and “country.”

His answer didn’t satisfy the activist who asked the question. “He did what a lot of candidates do, they, ‘All lives matter’ it. They try to broaden reparations for everyone,” Leslie Turner, 37, told The Post after the event.

“It’s actually ok to say, ‘This is actually for black people. We shouldn’t shy away from talking about what reparations specifically for black people could look like,” Turner said.

Other Democratic presidential candidates including Beto O’Rourke and Cory Booker support studying the matter.

Paging the socialist-loving Hollyweird folk: LA entertainment workers living out of their cars

The Hollywood Reporter reports that many entertainment workers are living out of their cars due to worsening income inequality. According to the Los Angeles Homeless Services Authority, 15,748 Angelenos currently live in his or her vehicle. Those in the entertainment industry make up a small – yet visible – population of homeless people living in their cars.

From the Hollywood Reporter:

“Though LAHSA does not survey professions in its annual Homeless Count, community engagement manager Jonathan Hans says entertainment-industry types are a familiar group: “Especially within our younger population, it’s not necessarily uncommon that a group of young kids came out [to L.A.] because somebody told them that they would get them a record deal and then they ended up living out of their van,” he says. Many now-well-known industry figures — Tiffany Haddish, Chris Pratt, Drew Carey, Kelly Clarkson — have said they lived in their car before rising to fame.”

Read the whole story about the homeless entertainment workers here.

Last week, libtard Chrissy Teigen invited democratic socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez to a Grammy party. Chrissy tweeted: “@AOC hello my hero, do you wanna come over and watch the grammys with us? there will be pizza”

Other Hollyweird libtards got in on the Twitter thread.

From Jesse Tyler Ferguson of Modern Family: “She can have my portion!”

Ellen Show producer Andy Lasser: “I’ll make cookies.”

The executive producer of the Big Bang Theory Bill Prady tweeted, “I will drive and wait in the car.”

I have a question for the socialist-loving proggies: If you truly believe in the principles of socialism, then why aren’t you sharing a portion of your wealth with those needy people who work so hard to help make you rich?

FYI: The net worth of these individuals: Chrissy Teigen: $26 million. Jesse Tyler Ferguson: $20 million. Andy Lasser: $12 million. Bill Prady: $150 million.

Hey Hollyweird: If you are going to support a socialist, then put your money where your Twitter mouth is and meet the public needs and help end poverty amongst your fellow co-workers. After all, it’s a shame that so few of you working in the entertainment industry should benefit from individual profit.
