LOS ANGELES - George Clooney has joined the masses in calling out Donald Trump.

In an interview with The Guardian, Clooney sat down and talked about his thoughts on the potential Republican nominee.

"He's just an opportunist," the "Hail, Caesar" actor said. "Now he's a fascist; a xenophobic fascist."

Clooney added that during election season it often isn't the person with the best idea being heard but rather the person who is loudest.

"Let's put things into perspective," he said. "You know, the truth of the matter is, in election season, things go crazy, and the loudest voices are the furthest and most extreme. So you hear a massively stupid idea, like we're going to ban Muslims from the country. Now, we're not ever going to do that. It says in the Statue of Liberty, bring us your huddled masses. It's not what's going to happen."
