George Clooney defends President Obama 

George Clooney had an epic blowup over President Barack Obama with Steve Wynn that ended with the actor calling Wynn “an a-- hole” and storming off as the casino mogul’s security guards got ready to pounce on him.

He came to verbal blows with the famously tough Wynn while dining at his Encore hotel in Las Vegas with businessman Rande Gerber.

A source told the New York Post’s Page Six, “Discussing Obamacare, Steve called Obama ‘an a--hole. George responded, ‘President Obama is my friend, don’t talk about him like that.’ Wynn then shot back, ‘Your friend is an a--hole. George glared at Steve and said, ‘No! You are an a--hole, and I’m not going to sit here any more and listen to this!’”

Reps for Clooney and Wynn didn’t comment. But Wynn claimed Clooney was downing tequila shots. He told a Las Vegas newspaper, “Clooney’s fun to be with when he’s sober. If you have a chance to drink with him, you want to get there early, and don’t stay late.”
