George Clooney offers Angela Merkel support for handling Syrian refugee crisis

Sure... Clooney knows all about Muslim incursion. He's just as stupid as Merkle if not more so. Taking advice from him would be tantamount to having Kanye West as your personal financial consultant.


George Clooney took a break from promoting his new film "Hail, Caesar!" in Berlin to talk about the Syrian refugee crisis with German Chancellor Angela Merkel.


Clooney supports Germany's open-door policy, led by Merkel, towards refugees fleeing the Syrian conflict, the Guardian reported. He told reporters at the Berlin film festival, "I absolutely agree with her."

Clooney and his human-rights lawyer wife, Amal, enjoyed a one-hour meeting with Merkel on Friday. They discussed the ongoing crisis in the Middle East and the political reaction to it in Europe and elsewhere, the Guardian said.

More than 4.5 million men, women and children have taken refuge outside Syria since the conflict broke out in 2011, according to Amnesty International. Most of those people are in Turkey, Lebanon, Jordan, Iraq and Egypt. In a move that has become increasingly controversial in Germany, Europe's most populous country took in 1.1 million refugees in 2015, many of from Syria. 

Clooney didn't release any details about what he discussed with Merkel. David Miliband, the former UK foreign secretary who is now head of the New York-based International Rescue Committee, accompanied the Clooneys to meet Merkel and told the BBC that the conversation covered possible solutions to the "global problem." Clooney also praised Merkel for "showing very strong leadership."

Really...ask the German people what they think of her "very strong leadership."

Clooney, a United Nations Messenger of Peace, has said he wants to do more to help the people of Syria though he doesn't want to get directly involved in politics. He has urged the United States to take in more refugees.
