U.N. Correspondent to George Clooney: ‘Don’t Shoot Me on This Last Question’

#Brangelina forces CNN's Richard Roth to deviate from his usual line of questioning.

In one of the oddest twists in today’s #Brangelina mad news rush, it fell to CNN senior international correspondent at the United Nations Richard Roth to ask George Clooney about today’s divorce news. The actor was at the U.N. Tuesday to participate in a roundtable discussion with President Obama about the refugee crisis.


As usual, Clooney very gracefully handled himself as he learned, live on camera, about the sad developments involving his two close friends. Roth, in the way that he asked the question, evidently thought Clooney already knew about it. The actor did not. It’s also likely Roth was instructed to ask about this matter by CNN HQ.
