Sanders supporters protest Clinton fundraiser hosted by George …


Clooney went on NBC’s Meet the Press Sunday and indeed used that very adjective – obscene – to describe to host Chuck Todd the amount of cash raised.Last summer, Trump’s campaign said the billionaire had given $100 million to charity in the past five years.US Senator and Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders would perform better than party front-runner Hillary Clinton in head-to-head matchups with their Republican opponents, according a new poll. “Yes, I think it’s an obscene amount of money”, he said.What’s more, upwards of 1,800 Sanders supporters have indicated on Facebook that they plan to protest outside Pishevar’s San Francisco home during the fundraiser.Sanders ripped into Bill Clinton on Twitter later Friday, tweeting, “We should be encouraging young people to get involved in politics, not disparaging them”. “I’ve known her, I respect her, but I have been disappointed in the kinds of attacks her campaign has levied against me”, Sanders said of Clinton.”The Sanders campaign, when they talk about it, is absolutely right”, he added.Clooney’s wife and global lawyer Amal was also present at the high-priced table.Clooney said he tried to engage with pro-Sanders protesters outside the event, but was called a “corporate shill”, an accusation he laughed off. “That’s one of the funnier things you could say about me”.The former president concluded, “You know, we all need to lighten up here, have a little sense of humor”.She reportedly hobnobbed there with the likes of movie directors Steven Spielberg, James Cameron and George Lucas.Sanders’ campaign, which does most of its fundraising online, has long looked to turn Clinton’s reliance on in-person fundraisers into a liability, charging that the former secretary of state is disingenuous about campaign finance reform.The release of at least one of Sanders’ full tax returns has put the Democratic presidential candidates ahead of their GOP rivals in terms of tax transparency. That is a movement toward oligarchy’.
