But, this is Clooney we’re talking about.

And if there’s one thing we know about the 56-year-old (other than the fact he’s a silver fox and an incredible actor/director) it’s that he won’t stand back in the face of injustice.

In response to President Donald Trump’s attack on NFL players who protested by kneeling during the national anthem last week, Clooney wrote a poem about race, the future of the US, the armed forces, and the importance of unity in times of peril.

The poem/prayer, published in the Daily Beast, reads:

“I pray for my country.

I pray that we can find more that unites us than divides us.

I pray that our nation’s leaders want to do the same.

I pray that young children like Tamir Rice can feel safe in their own neighbourhood.

I pray for all of our children.I pray for our police and our first responders.

I pray for our men and women of the armed services.

I pray that dissent will always be protected in this great country.

I pray for a more perfect union.

And when I pray, I kneel.”

Our sentiments exactly, George

*Gives standing ovation*
