George Clooney Just Took Sides in Biden Fight – The Top Hollywood Star Shocks America

Joe Biden’s campaign is like a ship taking on water, and even Hollywood’s elite are jumping ship. After a disastrous debate performance, some Democrats have demanded he step down as the 2024 nominee.

Biden has seen his poll numbers dip significantly, but he remains stubbornly defiant. The tide seems to be turning against him, however, as top Democrats and now a famous liberal voice are slamming the door on Biden’s campaign.

Trivia Question: Who was the first President of the United States to be impeached? (Answer at the end of the article)

Biden’s campaign has been plagued by gaffes, health concerns, and a noticeable decline in his mental acuity. Despite these glaring issues, his team has been trying to convince the party and the public that he’s still up for the job. The Democratic establishment is beginning to see the writing on the wall, with notable figures like Nancy Pelosi, Senator Michael Bennet, and Senator Blumenthal expressing serious doubts.

Hollywood Turns Against Biden

The latest blow to Biden’s campaign comes from none other than movie star and lifelong Democrat George Clooney.

From AP News:
Movie star and lifelong Democrat George Clooney added his voice to calls for Joe Biden to leave the presidential race on Wednesday, just weeks after headlining a fundraiser that brought in a record single-night haul for the president’s reelection campaign.

Clooney’s critique of Biden is not just another celebrity rant. He has been a significant fundraiser for the Democratic Party, hosting several high-dollar Hollywood events, including one for Biden just last month. Clooney’s opinion carries weight within the party, and his recent comments are a stark indication of Biden’s declining support.

From AP News:
“Clooney said in a New York Times opinion piece that he loves Biden, but the party would lose the presidential race as well as any control in Congress with him as the nominee. ‘This isn’t only my opinion; this is the opinion of every senator and congress member and governor that I’ve spoken with in private,’ wrote Clooney.”

Clooney’s Stark Criticism

Clooney’s words really are a dagger to Biden’s campaign. He’s exposing all the behind-the-scenes talks with powerful people, and he’s sharing his own personal experience.

“It’s devastating to say it, but the Joe Biden I was with three weeks ago at the fundraiser was not the Joe ‘big F-ing deal’ Biden of 2010. He wasn’t even the Joe Biden of 2020. He was the same man we all witnessed at the debate,” Clooney wrote.

That’s just devastating. Every single day, Biden is trying to act like he’s the same guy he was decades ago. He’s even admitted he’s lost a step. But he’s trying to pull the wool over America’s eyes, and Clooney just told everyone that Biden is the same in person as he was at that debate.

Defiance in the Face of Reality

Even with Biden continuing to defy his own party, Democrats are now facing a critical decision. They must decide whether to continue backing Biden or to push for a new candidate who can energize the base and present a strong challenge to the Republican nominee. The internal struggle within the party is becoming more evident as prominent figures voice their concerns. Clooney’s call for Biden to step aside is a significant development, and it highlights the urgency of the situation.

As Biden’s campaign continues to flounder, the Democratic Party must consider its options. The possibility of Biden stepping down and allowing a new candidate to take the reins is becoming more likely. The party’s future and its ability to retain control of Congress depend on making a bold decision. The coming months will be crucial as the party navigates this challenging landscape.

It’s clear that Biden’s time in the spotlight is waning. His inability to effectively lead and communicate is becoming more apparent with each passing day. The Democratic Party must take a hard look at the reality of the situation and make a decision that is in the best interest of the country.

Clooney’s comments are a wake-up call for the party, and they must act swiftly to ensure they have a viable candidate for 2024. The stakes are high, and the future of the party hangs in the balance.

Key Takeaways:

  • George Clooney, a major Democratic fundraiser, calls for Biden to step aside.
  • Prominent Democrats express serious doubts about Biden’s ability to win in 2024.
  • The Democratic Party faces a critical decision as Biden’s campaign falters.
