I just saw a blog post by my colleague Roger Algase that praises "human rights lawyer" Amal Alamuddin Clooney for her attacks on Donald Trump. Yes, that Clooney. The wife of $353,000.0 per plate "Gorgeous George" Clooney.

Roger references an April 25, 2016 BBC interview where Mrs. Clooney stated the following:

"When you listen to what the leading candidate on the Republican side has been saying about building walls, about excluding Mexicans and saying there has to be a complete shutdown on all Muslims entering the country...

People I think should have been saying, 'Do you mean the 1.5 billion people around the world who fit that description, do you mean the people who are US citizens, who are members of your military, the vast majority of whom are not extremist or violent in any way?'"


Oddly enough, I don't recall hearing Amal Clooney's opinion about her and her husband's chosen candidate Hillary Clinton. I wonder what Mrs. Clooney's thoughts are on Hillary's xenophobically racist statements dehumanizing undocumented immigrants? Or about Hillary boasting that she voted multiple times when in the Senate to build a wall? Since Clooney is a "human rights lawyer," it would be interesting to know what her opinion is on Secretary Clinton's insistence that we immediately deport immigrants without due process, "No questions asked." Or about Hillary's repeated calls to send refugee children back to unspeakable violence? Did Mrs. Clooney happen to opine on Hillary Clinton's dubious ties to the private for-profit prison industry, that in addition to Clooney, is funding Clinton's campaign? Or that 20 years of mass detention and abuse of immigrants have been directly attributed to policies Bill Clinton created and Hillary supported?

I'm willing to hazard a guess that there are 353,000 per plate reasons why we haven't heard Mrs. Clooney's opinion on those subjects.

Remember boys and girls, it is perfectly acceptable to bundle for a politician that has a history as a human rights violator so long as that person is a Democrat.

Repeat after me: "A Republican would be worse."

Here is what an actual in-the-trenches "human rights" lawyer has to say on the subject, one that isn't bundling for Clinton:

As attorneys who represent over 300 Central American children with pending deportation cases in the New York Immigration Court and who have won relief for more than 200 children in the past two years, we believe it is unconscionable [to endorse] Hillary Clinton. ~Immigration lawyer Bryan Johnson

I'm guessing Mr. Johnson won't be invited to the inauguration, which is too bad because as a fellow "human rights" lawyers I'm sure he and Mrs. Clooney would have much to talk about.

Parenthetically, it is worth noting that our current President is already implementing Trump-like immigration policies towards Muslims and Mexicans, in addition to jailing refugee children in WWII style deportation internment camps, and deporting nearly 3 million people.

I wonder what Mrs. Clooney's opinion is about that?

I forgot... another Democrat.
