Clooney to Biden: I love you but…

The US President is still receiving “blowbacks” from within. Joe BidenAs the former Speaker of Parliament and his ally for several years, Nancy PelosiActor, director and producer George Clooney, a major donor to the Democratic Party, today called on the US president to withdraw from the presidential race scheduled for next November, in the face of doubts about the state of his country. Health.

Previously His disastrous appearance in the June debateagainst Donald Trump, which confirmed doubts and concerns about whether Joe Biden is fit for a second four-year term, with a split emerging in the Democratic Party.

with Opinion article on The New York TimesThe US actor, a staunch Democrat who is actively involved in raising funds for the party, wrote that he loves Joe Biden “but we need a new candidate.”

“I am a lifelong Democrat, and I make no apologies for that. I am proud of what my party stands for and what it represents. As part of my participation in the democratic process and in support of the candidate I chose, I have led some of the largest fundraising campaigns in my party’s history. Barack Obama in 2012. Hillary Clinton in 2016. Joe Biden in 2020. Last month, I helped organize the largest fundraiser ever for any Democratic candidate to re-elect President Biden.“I say all of this just to express how much I believe in this process and how deeply I believe in this moment,” Clooney initially states in his essay, then goes on to list the reasons why he loves the current president.

“I love Joe Biden. As a senator. As vice president and as president. I consider him my friend and I believe in him. I believe in his character. I believe in his morals. And over the last four years, he has won many battles that he has fought.

But the one battle he can’t win is the battle against time. None of us can. It pains me to say this, but the Joe Biden I was with at the charity event three weeks ago was not the “big deal” Joe Biden of 2010. He wasn’t even the Joe Biden of 2020. He was the Joe Biden of 2010. The same guy we all saw at the debate.

Was he tired? Yes. Did he have a cold? Maybe.But our party leaders need to stop telling us that 51 million people didn’t see what we just saw. We are all so terrified by the prospect of a second Trump term that we have chosen to ignore every warning sign. The George Stephanopoulos interview reinforced what we saw last week. “As Democrats, we collectively hold our breath or turn down our volume every time we see a president, whom we respect, step off Air Force One or return to the microphone to answer a free-flowing question,” Clooney said.

“Is it fair to point these things out? It has to be. It’s about age. Nothing else. But also nothing that can be reversed,” he asks. We will not win in November with this president.. On top of that, we won’t win the House and we’ll lose the Senate.. And that’s not just my opinion, it’s the opinion of every senator, congressman, and governor that I’ve spoken to personally. With everyone, regardless of what they say publicly.”

“We like to talk about how the Republican Party has ceded all the power and all the characteristics that made it so formidable under Ronald Reagan and George W. Bush to one person seeking to retain the presidency, and yet most members of Congress are choosing to wait and see if the dam breaks. But the dam has been broken. We can stick our heads in the sand and pray for a miracle in November, or we can tell the truth.“Senior Democratic leaders, senators, House members, and other candidates who are at risk of losing in November, should follow suit,” he said in another part of the text published by The New York Times. “I am asking this president to voluntarily retire.”

Closing his article, George Clooney described democracy as “messy,” but stressed that the short period until Election Day “will give us the opportunity to project the future without so much negative campaigning that accompanies ridiculously long and expensive pre-election periods.” This can be an exciting time for democracy, as we have just seen with the two hundred or so French candidates who have put aside their personal ambitions to save their democracy from the far right.
