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."

Things not to talk about at dinner with friends: religion, politics, money.

Why are the super rich so opposed to providing affordable healthcare for all, or raising the minimum wage to an actual living wage? But the rich don't have a problem with taking advantage of all the loopholes, legal and illegal, that keep them super rich. Republicans are such greedy, selfish pricks. The rich also don't want to go fight in the wars, but don't have a problem sending poor men and women off to be killed and maimed. And Republicans have a fit if you don't wear a flag pin, just don't ask them to actually go defend our country. They are hypocrites, like Dick Cheney and George Bush.

Wynn is yet one of those out of touch old rich guys. Clooney is a winner! Great actor, travels the world trying to help people. What does Wynn do? Runs casinos, basically taking money from many people who can't afford to lose it, then complains about people not having enough money for healthcare? Guy is a complete schmuck!

Wynn's face has been nipped and tucked so much that he IS an *******. George probably took the Obama comment as a chance to tell him that.
