Standing in sharp opposition to President Trump, Clooney has been a vocal critic of some his more questionable policies. His philanthropic gestures and dedication to humanitarian causes show that he is a man of principle and empathy, something sadly lacking in the current administration.

People have been sharing some of Clooney's positive initiatives, as well as a perfect put down to Trump himself, and it's making us think. If Americans really do insist on a 'celebrity' President, they could do a lot worse than good ol' Gorgeous George! Scroll down below to check them out for yourself, and let us know what you think in the comments!

He Gave 14 Of His Friends $1 Million Dollars Each In Briefcases, Just For Being Good Friends

George's close pal and Rande Gerber claimed the actor once gave 14 of his close friends - which he referred to as "The Boys" - $1 million each as a surprise gift in 2013. "George had called me and 'The Boys' and said, 'Hey, mark September 27th, 2013, on your calendar. Everyone’s going to come to my house for dinner. 'George begins to say, 'Listen, I want you guys to know how much you've meant to me and how much you mean to me in my life,'" Gerber recalled. "'I came to L.A., I slept on your couch. I'm so fortunate in my life to have all of you and I couldn't be where I am today without all of you. So, it was really important to me that while we’re still all here together, that I give back. So I want you all to open your suitcases. We're in shock'"

I applaud him for doing so... too bad United Way is one of the biggest offenders about money going directly to the intended disaster. (IE: approx 5-10 cents for every dollar is spent on that particular disaster. Red Cross is another big offender). I wish I can find the link! Salvation army is ranked one of the highest (if not the highest) for the amount of money going towards something. Please, don not misconstrue this as I don't volunteer or donate when I can, because I do or that I don't appreciate what these foundations/charities do. I live in Sacramento and with that Camp Fire that has killed at least 80 people and destroyed a whole community and without these peoples help, god, I can only imagine how worse all this can be in relief efforts.

Arnold Schwarzenegger Once Challenged Him To A Drinking Contest And Was Quick To Regret It

Arnold Schwarzenegger Once Challenged Him To A Drinking Contest And Was Quick To Regret It

Clooney recalls, “He was bragging that he could outdrink any Irishman. You don’t do that. It’s not right. He had this bar and restaurant, I don’t know if he still has it, and he had a big dinner. James Caan was there and all these people were there and he was drinking peach schnapps. And it’s clear and horrible. I did a couple of shots of that and I was like, ‘I’m not gonna hang with this guy. He’s gonna kill me.’ So, I gave the waitress $500 to keep bringing me shots of water and bring him shots of peach schnapps. Every five minutes, he’d be sitting there talking to (his wife) Maria and I’d be like, ‘Hey, let’s go! Come on superstud, let’s go!’ I got him literally about 15 shots in and he was just sitting there slumped over the table.”

George Clooney Is The Reason South Park Was Picked Up By Comedy Central

George Clooney Is The Reason South Park Was Picked Up By Comedy Central

During the mid-1990s the junior executive at Fox, Brian Graden, asked his friends Matt Stone and Trey Parker to make an animated Christmas card based on a five-minute stop-motion movie they made at the University of Colorado. Graden made 35 VHS copies and sent them to his friends, that shared it with their friends. One copy ended up in George Clooney's hands. Executive producer Anne Garefino recalls "Before we even began working on the series, the fact that George Clooney had made hundreds of VHS copies of The Spirit of Christmas and sent them out to all his friends was already the stuff of Hollywood history. When he did the voice of Sparky, Stan's gay dog [for episode four], he did the voice remotely. We never met him until he finally came by the studio to do a voice for the South Park movie."
