George Clooney on Joe Biden: Hollywood star demands his resignation

In a guest article for the New York Times, George Clooney called for Joe Biden to step down.

Actor George Clooney (63) has called on US President Joe Biden (81) not to run in the presidential election. On July 10, he gave the headline: “I love Joe Biden. But we need a new candidate.”

Clooney is one of Democrat Joe Biden’s biggest supporters and donors in Hollywood. He drummed up support for him and hosted a major fundraising gala for his re-election. The fact that he is now calling on Biden to withdraw from the race for the presidential nomination apparently also has something to do with his appearance at the gala.

George Clooney: With Biden “we will not win”

“I love Joe Biden,” Clooney explains in his post. “As a senator. As vice president and as president. I consider him a friend and I believe in him. Believe in his character. Believe in his morals.” In the last four years, Biden has won many battles, but the one he cannot win is the battle against time. The Biden he saw at the fundraising gala on June 15 was not the Joe Biden of 2010, which was “a big deal.” “He wasn’t even the Joe Biden of 2020,” Clooney continues. “He was the same man we all saw at the debate.” The actor is referring to the TV duel between Joe Biden and Donald Trump (78) at the end of June and the criticism of Biden’s performance.

“Our party leaders need to stop telling us that 51 million people didn’t see what we just saw,” Clooney explains. “We are all so frightened by the prospect of a second Trump term that we have chosen to ignore all the warning signs.” The actor warns: “Is it fair to point out these things? It has to be. This is about age. Nothing else. But also nothing that can be undone. With this president, we will not win in November. And we will not win the House of Representatives. And we will lose the Senate.” That is not just his opinion, it is also the opinion of all the senators, members of Congress and governors with whom he has spoken in private, emphasizes Clooney and appeals: We can now bury our heads in the sand and pray for a miracle in November, “or we can tell the truth.”
