George Clooney had a blunt assessment of President Trump's first months as commander in chief.
"It becomes increasingly clear how in over his head and incapable this man is of being president of the United States," the liberal actor told the Associated Press. "The good news is that our other institutions — meaning press, finally, and judges and senators — have proven that the country works. There is a check and balance."
Clooney said his new film "Suburbicon," about the racial tensions of 1950s suburbia, is relevant to current day racial tensions.
"I found it interesting to talk about building walls and scapegoating minorities," Clooney said. "I think that's always an interesting topic but particularly when I was hearing these conversations on the campaign trail. I thought: It's always good to look back and remember that nothing really is new and every time we're shocked, we forget that we've had this behavior time and time and time again."
Last week Clooney and his wife Amal, a prominent lawyer, donated $1 million to the Southern Poverty Law Center to fight hate groups in the wake of the violence in Charlottesville, Va.
"There are no two sides to bigotry and hate," Clooney said of the donation.
Clooney earlier this year accused Trump of exploiting America's relationships with its allies.
