Remember back in March when Bernie Sanders called a fundraiser George Clooney was planning for Hillary Clinton "obscene"? Well, the event was this weekend, and it turns out Clooney agrees with Sanders.
"It is an obscene amount of money. The Sanders campaign when they talk about it is absolutely right. It's ridiculous that we should have this kind of money in politics. I agree completely," Clooney told Chuck Todd on "Meet the Press."
The money raised at the fundraiser — where the most expensive seats cost around $353,000 — went to the Hillary Victory Fund, which is a joint campaign effort for the Clinton campaign and the Democratic National Committee.
