Chatting with USA TODAY’s Brian Truitt on a number of topics, “Oceans 11″ actor George Clooney called Joe Biden a “very smart” and “wise man.”
Clooney explained “I feel like we’re in so much better shape because I do think this: Moments meet the man or woman. And this is Joe Biden’s moment.”
“He is a compassionate, kind man,” he continued “and we’re going to need that after we’ve lost probably close to 400,000 people by the time we get [the coronavirus pandemic] in our rear-view mirror.”
“We’re going to need compassion through this and [Biden] is every bit of that, on top of being a very smart, wise guy, wise man,” he added.
Appearing recently on the late show with Stephen Colbert, Joe Biden paid his embattled son Hunter quite a compliment.
Joe said “He is the smartest man I know. I mean, in a pure intellectual capacity. And as long as he’s good, we’re good.”
WHAT?! Joe Biden thinks Hunter is "the smartest man I know."
Full quote: "I think it's kind of foul play, but, look, it is what it is. And he's a grown man. He is the smartest man I know. I mean, in a pure intellectual capacity. And as long as he's good, we're good." pic.twitter.com/VWXBVBtZab
