Human rights lawyer Amal Clooney has spoken out against U.S. President-elect Donald Trump. Trump has said many controversial and sometimes outrageous things on basic human rights and through his infamous tweets. Clooney denounced his comments on imposing a government-issued religion test on people entering the U.S., legalizing torture, and saying the families of suspected terrorists should be murdered.
Clooney specializes in international law and human rights. She is also well known for her looks, fashion, and her famous husband, the actor George Clooney. The British-Lebanese woman has been an aggressive activist against human rights violations. She is brave enough to speak out against the terrorist group ISIS, and gave a speech condemning the United Nations for its failure to deal with ISIS crimes done to the Yazidi people. ISIS has been killing many people and committing many horrendous acts. The lack of U.N. action against ISIS has disappointed many people.
The lawyer’s pretty looks, handsome husband, and fancy job might make many think that she is special, but she is simply unafraid to stand up and speak out for what she thinks is right. She and her spouse are also rumored to be on the verge of divorce over their differences in what they want in life despite loving each other, especially having children, though many say the rumors are not true. “Courage is resistance to fear, mastery of fear, not absence of fear,” said Mark Twain. Let’s all master our fears so we can all become brave like Amal Clooney.
