Would you pay $353,000 to sit next to George Clooney? Bernie Sanders doesn't think you should!

Next month, high-rollers who want to dine with Hillary Clinton, George, and Amal Clooney, will cough up $353,400 for a spot at a San Francisco-based fundraiser hosted by the actor. And Sanders is spitting mad over it.

"It is obscene that Secretary Clinton keeps going to big-money people to fund her campaign," Sanders told CNN's Jake Tapper.

The April 15 event is only the first of two Clinton events in which the Clooneys are involved. The second fundraiser on April 16 is more affordable at $33,400 per ticket.

George has long been a supporter of Clinton, recently penning a letter endorsing the candidate, as the "the only grown-up in the room" -- and a very expensive room at that!

Clinton's usual fundraisers, the ones without the A-list actors, require hosts to raise $10,000 to $50,000.

Sanders then went on to slam Clinton for the monetary support she receives outside of Hollywood.

"But it's not only this Clooney event," Sanders continued. "It is the fact that she has now raised well over $15 million from Wall Street for her super-PAC and millions more from the fuel industry and from the drug companies."

Looks like Sanders won't be dining with the Clooneys anytime soon!
