Clooney, who had the opportunity to interact with Biden personally at a highly successful fundraising event in Los Angeles, expressed profound admiration for the US president. However, based on this encounter and the lackluster performance in the recent Atlanta debate, Clooney concluded that Biden’s chances of victory were slim.Regretfully, Clooney highlighted that the Joe Biden he met at the fundraiser did not exude the same charisma and impact as the influential figure from 2010 or even 2020.

Dismissing explanations such as fatigue or a cold, Clooney insisted that the party leaders must acknowledge that 51 million people witnessed the same underwhelming debate performance.In a direct and unequivocal manner, Clooney asserted that Biden could not emerge triumphant in a potential electoral rematch against Trump, stating, “We are not going to win with this president.”While acknowledging Biden’s impressive political accomplishments over the years, Clooney emphasized that the battle against time was an insurmountable adversary for all, including the esteemed candidate.

Clooney’s heartfelt plea comes at a time when Biden remains resolute in his decision to stay in the race, causing senior Democrats to grapple with how to apply pressure and address concerns regarding his health and viability for re-election.The actor urged influential party figures to take a stance and present their case to Biden directly.

He criticized the president’s argument, expressed in a recent letter to Democratic members of Congress, that the party’s nomination had already been decided during the primaries, considering it disingenuous.

Highlighting the urgency of the situation, Clooney criticized the inaction and expressed that waiting for a breakthrough was no longer an option. He urged the party to face the truth rather than hoping for a miracle in November.In conclusion, Clooney praised Biden as a hero who saved democracy in 2020, emphasizing the need for him to repeat this feat in 2024.
