Clooney's Biz Partner

George Wasn't Drunk When He Blasted Wynn

George Clooney
's biz partner insists the actor was NOT pounding shots before his nuclear blowout with casino mogul Steve Wynn -- and tells TMZ, "We weren't drunk."

As we reported, Clooney and Wynn (left) locked horns earlier this month at a fancy dinner in Vegas after Wynn called Obama an a-hole. Clooney shot back, calling Wynn the a-hole ... then stormed out.

Wynn claims things exploded because Clooney was slamming tequila -- but Rande Gerber, who was at the dinner -- insists, "No shots were had" ... and it was NOT a heated political debate.

Gerber says, "This wasn't about politics. It was about George standing up for a friend."

FYI, Clooney and Gerber (Cindy Crawford's husband) are partners in a tequila company called Casamigos. They were meeting with Wynn to discuss future business at Wynn's hotels, which already serves the brand.

Funny, we're told Wynn's hotels continue to stock Casamigos ... despite the blowout.

It is interesting that George doesn't even live in this country. Hmmmm. I wonder why?

George is an alcoholic and word is that Gerbe is, too. Pay no attention to the man behind the curtain!

Makes it even MORE admirable what George did.

Stuck up for a great President and Country.

Even though his brand?

Benefits mightily from Steve Wynn.

Truth    

Clooney acted like a liberal. He got LOUD and abusive as soon as he heard another opinion besides his own. Then he stomped out of the room. ALL liberals do this.

I long for a return to the days.

When we defend our Country and President to the death.

For our own good fortune - of being here.

Team Clooney.

They're all grown men. Just because they had a disagreement doesn't mean their partnership is over. This is real life TMZ, not Real Housewives of LA.

So Clooney calls Obama "his friend". How easy is it to buy "friends" in government? Clooney is just pissed about not getting a return on his investment. Wynn can spot a hustle from anywhere, anytime, that's why he's successful. If he's calling out Obamacare, I'd listen.

Cooney sounds immature. Wynn should stop serving the tequila and tmz shouldn't write about stupid stuff but we all know that won't happen.

Why is it that the right only has insecure clowns to embrace? They've got Steve Wynn with his bad cosmetic surgery and fake teeth and the other that won't acknowledge he's bald but instead has the world's worst comb over.
