The lawyer seems to relish the idea of Trump losing to a woman.
Amal Clooney doesn’t speak to the press often, but when she does, she makes it count.
In an interview with the BBC on Tuesday, Clooney weighed in on the American presidential election—specifically, on GOP frontrunner Donald Trump. Clooney, who is a top human rights lawyer, effortlessly dismantled Trump’s position on Muslims, which includes banning them from entering the U.S. She also dismissed the idea that the candidate has any appeal to women.
Clooney referenced the Republican PAC ad in which ordinary women read the many sexist comments Trump has made over the years, saying, “you watch that and you think, ‘Gosh!’”
While Trump bragged about “how well [he] did with women” in the Republican primaries earlier this week, Clooney rejected the idea that he would be able to rally women’s support during a general election. “He has a really high negative rating,” she said. “I don’t think he’s going to get much of the women’s vote as a result of that.”
Clooney, who—along with her famous husband, George Clooney—recently has hosted a$33,400-per-person fundraiser for Hillary Clinton, seems to relish the idea of seeing Trump lose the presidency to a woman.
“If, at the end of all of this, he gets beaten by the person who becomes the first female president of the United States, then I think that would send a very positive message from the electorate back to him as to what they really think of those points of view,” she said.
