WATCH: Sanders Praises Clooney for Calling Clinton Fundraiser 'Obscene' (VIDEO)
Actor George Clooney co-hosted a fundraiser in San Francisco for Hillary Clinton, raising $15 million for her campaign. Bernie Sanders has been bashing the fundraiser, and surprisingly George Clooney himself agrees. Clooney tells NBC's Chuck Todd "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." Sanders responded to the comments saying he has "a lot of respect for George Clooney's honesty and integrity on this issue" and says it is a tragedy that "big money is buying elections."
