Bernie Sanders Says Hillary Clinton's Pricey Fundraiser with George Clooney Is "Obscene"

Would totally pay $350k to meet George and Amal, TBH.

Bernie Sanders is so not here for Hillary Clinton's party with George and Amal Clooney. 

The presidential candidate spoke at length about his rival's campaign event in San Francisco, where she's kindly offering up two seats at her table with George and Amal in exchange for $353,400.

"It is obscene that Secretary Clinton keeps going to big-money people to fund her campaign," Sanders told CNN. "I have a lot of respect for George Clooney. He's a great actor. I like him, but this is the problem with American politics, that big money is dominating our political system. And we are trying to move as far away from that as we can."

Not sure George and Amal are necessarily the "big money" haters Bernie loves to twirl on, but $350k for a dinner is definitely more than most people are able to spend.

Either way, someone's clearly upset he didn't get an invite to Lake Como this year.
