George Clooney pledged to make a $500,000 donation to a human rights charity in honor of Donald Trump as part of a sarcastic dig at the president.
Clooney issued a statement on the holiday Juneteenth, which commemorates the last of enslaved Americans being emancipated: “Thank you President Trump for ‘making Juneteenth famous.
’ Much like when Bull Connor made ‘Civil Rights’ famous. My family will be donating [$500,000] to the Equal Justice Initiative in honor of your heroic efforts.”
Trump said that “nobody had ever heard of” Juneteenth before he made the holiday “very famous” by scheduling a rally on the same day. (PageSix)
