Hillary kowtows to Hollywood filmmaker, backs out of conference

Hillary Clinton has been broken by President Trump. … I'm thankful for the organizing CREDO Action, Define American and Bend the Arc have done to hold Trump collaborators like Nielsen accountable for their atrocities. … Sharing a stage with Nielsen, who separated immigrant families and put babies in cages, would have put a stamp of approval on her immoral and reprehensible actions and help legitimize the terror that Trump is inflicting on immigrants and communities of color…

Rooney hits Trump on that too -- watch below from the beginning and you'll find him complaining about Trump's handling of Syria. … (He admits at the end of the clip below that he's not sure if he'll run again.)
