Steve Wynn Calls George Clooney “Mollycoddled”

Steve Wynn and George Clooney had a pretty serious spat over political preferences. The issue arose when Steve uttered a swear word against President Obama.

The occasion was a classic glitzy Hollywood dinner party. And who should be present among the guests? The actor George Clooney and casino owner Steve Wynn were present among the style-worthy crowd. 

In between the chit chat and hors de oeuvres Steve Wynn called Obama a very offensive name. Clooney who was face to face with Wynn couldn’t take this insulting reference to his favorite leader and so he decided to respond in kind. 

Clooney previously commented of the alleged argument, “I said that the president was my longtime friend and then [Wynn] said ‘your friend is an a—hole’ … I told Steve that he was an a—hole and that I wasn’t going to sit at his table while he was being such a jackass. And I walked out.”

Clooney said the selfsame thing to Wynn and hurriedly left the dinner party. The whole thing started off as an argumentative downward spiral between Wynn and Clooney. George Clooney is a renowned supporter of the Democratic Party and all sorts of liberal causes. 

Steve Wynn started getting on Clooney’s nerves and soon enough the two were at loggerheads with each other. Clooney finally called Wynn a bodily function and left in an angry state. 

But Steve Wynn has gone ahead to flat out deny any such rumors of him saying anything offensive about Obama. He has further mentioned that most of Hollywood’s top elite lived in a strangely isolated existence of their own making. 

He spoke of how people like George Clooney and Barbara Streisand were so pampered and soft in the head that they couldn’t take constructive criticism from anyone. 

“They’re mollycoddled, they’re highly privileged,” Wynn told Bloomberg TV’s Stephanie Ruhle in an interview. “We are talking about successful artists like George, Barbra Streisand … they live in a relatively small world, the people around them are very solicitous and caring of them.”

They were locked up in a bubble that they refused to step out of and they hardly left their comfort zones. Wynn went ahead and explained that the logic with which the stars operated was that since they possessed so much, the rest of the world should also be their equal. 

 

Wynn added, “They have a worldview that is therefore ‘Everything should be given to everybody’ because everything has been given to them.”

However, this was not the case in practical terms. Wynn said that unlike Clooney, he had a flourishing business which made him more considerate towards his working staff. In short, Wynn said he didn’t merely pay lip service to others.
