Actor George Clooney asks Biden to drop out of presidential race


(MENAFN) In a recent opinion piece published in the newspaper, renowned hollywood actor and lifelong Democrat George Clooney has called for Joe Biden to step aside from the upcoming presidential race, citing concerns over Biden's recent debate performance against Republican challenger Donald Trump. Clooney, while expressing his deep admiration for Biden and his commitment to the Democratic Party, emphasized the need for party leaders to acknowledge the challenges ahead.

Clooney's article, titled 'I Love Joe Biden. But We Need a New Nominee', underscores his belief that the Democratic Party must confront the reality that Biden's performance in the televised debate reflected his limitations. "Our party leaders need to stop telling us that 51 million people didn’t see what we just saw," Clooney wrote, urging for a candid assessment of Biden's candidacy.

Throughout the piece, Clooney reiterated his respect for Biden but argued that time is not on the Democrats' side. "The one battle he cannot win is the fight against time," Clooney remarked, pointing out the potential consequences of Biden remaining on the ticket. He warned that failure to address these concerns could lead to losses in both the House and Senate for the Democratic Party.

Clooney also shared insights from his discussions with numerous elected officials, stating that privately, "every senator and Congress member and governor" he has spoken to shares concerns similar to his own about Biden's candidacy, despite their public statements.

The opinion piece by Clooney adds to the ongoing debate within the Democratic Party about Biden's viability as the presidential nominee, as the party prepares for the crucial November election.
