Actor George Clooney ran for president in the film “The Ides of March.”
Becuase he’s such a prominent voice for the left, rumors are beginning to swirl about a real-life run for the nation’s highest office.
George Clooney has ignited speculation by some on the right about a 2020 presidential run after the Oscar-winning actor announced that he pledged to make a $500,000 donation for a student march against gun violence.
Clooney wrote in a Twitter post that he and his wife – international human rights attorney Amal Clooney – would donate the funds to the March 24 march and even participate in the protest in Washington, D.C., titled “March for our Lives,” Agence France-Presse noted.
A Twitter account dedicated to the survivors of the Valentine’s Day shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, posted the announcement. Nikolas Cruz has been accused of using an AR-15 to kill 17 people and wound more than a dozen others in the country’s latest school shooting, noted Vogue.

LOS ANGELES (Reuters) – Oprah Winfrey, George Clooney and Steven Spielberg said on Tuesday they would each donate $500,000 to the “March for Our Lives” rally in Washington in support of gun control following last week’s shooting at a Florida high school that left 17 dead.
Run, George, Run!
It would be a glorious defeat.
