George Clooney Responds To Casino Owner

Back in April, Steve Wynn and George Clooney were having dinner, and a heated exchange ensued. The spat became public and the center of celebrity gossip.

The two have slightly different accounts of what exactly went down. Wynn claimed that Clooney got drunk and basically got overly pro-Obama. Weeks later, Clooney has refuted Wynn’s account of what was said. The actor presumably wanted to clear the air.

Here is Clooney’s full statement (via People Magazine):

“Steve Wynn and I have met three times, two times for dinner. That is the extent of our knowledge of one another, so I will refrain from trying to categorize him based on the little time we’ve spent together, but I will not let his version of the truth go unchallenged.

“He now says he didn’t call the president an ‘asshole.’ That is false. He bellowed ‘I voted for the asshole,’ and then called him the same thing several more times as the dinner came to an abrupt end. Again there were eight people at the table, eight witnesses. I did in turn, call him the same body part, and walked out. Again he can make up whatever story he wants, but these are the facts. He said I drank 16 shots of tequila. I didn’t drink one shot of tequila, not one. We were drinking but it was early and we still had two events to attend.”

“He said I live in a bubble. More of a bubble than Las Vegas? Honestly? He says I’m ‘molly coddled,’ that I’m surrounded by people who coddle me. I would suggest that Mr. Wynn look to his left and right and find anyone in his sphere that says anything but ‘yes’ to him. Emphatically. I did not attend a private boys’ school, I worked in tobacco fields and in stock rooms, and construction sites. I’ve been broke more of my life than I have been successful, and I understand the meaning of being an employee and how difficult it is to make ends meet.

“Steve is one of the richest men in the world and he should be congratulated for it, but he needs to take off his red sparkly dinner jacket and roll up his sleeves every once in a while and understand what most of the country is actually dealing with…or at least start with the fact that you can’t make up stories when eight people who are not on your payroll are sitting around you as witnesses.”

Tribe Cites 250-Year-Old Deal With King George III In Present-Day Battle To Build $500 Million Casino

King George III. Credit: Wikipedia

The Mashpee Wampanoag tribe’s efforts to get everything in order to potentially build a casino in Southeastern Massachusetts are tricky. The group is nearly land-less.

After agreeing to a deal with the state, the federal government rejected it, basically saying that the tribe was getting the short end of the stick, according to The Boston Globe.

Now, according to The Cape Cod Times, the desperate tribe is using a 250-year-old agreement with King George III to try to get what it wants en route to securing the OK for a casino in Massachusetts, which recently legalized resort-style gambling joints.

As part of the current plan, the tribe needs its proposed land taken into trust by the federal government before getting a casino. It also must renegotiate with a state eager to see new casinos, though the tribe could potentially build a casino regardless of whether or not Massachusetts lawmakers sign off on it. Tribal sovereignty is the trump card.

The Cape Cod Times reported that in the document filed with the feds the tribe said that the U.S has “repeatedly failed in its responsibility to protect the Mashpee Wampanoag leaving the tribe ‘impoverished and nearly landless.’”

The tribe is hoping that a casino can turn things around.
