Clooney, Wynn

Nuclear Screaming Match

Wynn Called Obama an Asshole!

4/23/2014 10:17 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

George Clooney
stormed away during his fancy Vegas dinner with hotel tycoon Steve Wynn after Wynn called Prez Obama an asshole. 

It sounds like an epic dinner.  According to Wynn ... Clooney got drunk on tequila shots and when Wynn attacked the President ... he says George hurled an F-bomb and left.

Clooney says Wynn was railing over the Affordable Care Act.  He says "I said that the President was my longtime friend and then he said, 'Your friend is an asshole.'"  Clooney adds, "At that point I told Steve HE was an asshole and that I wasn't going to sit at his table while he was being such a jackass." 

Wynn told the Las Vegas Review-Journal, "When he's [George] drinking, he considers himself a close personal buddy of the President."

Wynn passes a lot of it off to alcohol, saying, "Clooney's fun to be with when he's sober ... If you have a chance to drink with him, you want to get there early, and don't stay late."

For Clooney's part he says there were 9 people at the dinner 2 weeks ago at Botero restaurant at Wynn's Encore hotel, adding, "It had nothing to do with politics and everything to do with character."

For Wynn's part, he says, "Everybody who's in my business -- the casino business -- knows to take actors with a grain of salt."

She's baaaack    

I'm not going to get into the whole Obama and Obamacare thing but who the fcuk does Steve Wynn think he is? Who died and made him Medical Insurance God when he has no clue about people who (1) can't freaking afford any type of medical insurance including Obamacare (2) can't afford to get sick. Steve looks like he has a lot of medical dollars to throw at a plastic surgeon by the looks of his face.
