“We are not going to win in November with this president,” Clooney stated in The New York Times.

Hollywood star George Clooney has urged Joe Biden to withdraw from the run for a second term in the White House, claiming he is “not the Joe ‘big f***ing deal’ Biden of 2010.

Clooney, a lifelong Democrat, penned a guest column for the New York Times three weeks after attending a fundraiser with President Biden.

Doubts about the president’s health arose on the night as his predecessor, Barack Obama, took his hand to leave the platform.

In his opinion article, Clooney stated, “I love Joe Biden.” As a Senator. As vice president and president. I consider him a friend and believe in him.

“I believe in his character. Believe in his morality. He’s won a lot of battles over the past four years.

“But he can’t win the war against time. Neither of us can.

Mr Biden’s re-election campaign has come under heavy criticism following a dismal performance in a debate with Donald Trump last month.

In a blistering critique, Clooney continues: “It’s devastating to say it, but the Joe Biden I saw at the fundraiser three weeks ago was not the Joe ‘big f***ing deal’ Biden of 2010.” He was hardly even the Joe Biden of 2020. “He was the same man we saw at the debate.”

Was he tired? Yes. A cold? Maybe. However, our party officials must cease telling us that 51 million people did not observe what we just witnessed.

We are all so afraid of a second Trump term that we have chosen to overlook every warning sign. The George Stephanopoulos interview merely confirmed what we had seen the week before.

As Democrats, we collectively hold our breath or turn down the volume anytime we watch the president, whom we like, exit Air Force One or return to a microphone to answer an unscripted question.

The president, 81, has so far resisted calls to resign, including from some in his party. He stated he is “firmly committed” to remaining in the campaign and urged his fellow Democrats to put the topic to bed.

But Clooney wrote, “This is about age. There’s nothing more. However, nothing can be reversed.

We will not win in November with this president.

He went on to say that following the discussion, “the dam has broken.”

We can bury our heads in the sand and hope for a miracle in November or tell the truth.

He agreed that replacing the nominee with so little time until the November election would be “messy.” Still, he argued that it would also revitalize our party and rouse those who had already tuned out long before the June debate.

The essay was titled “I Love Joe Biden.” But We Need a New Nominee,” concluded by calling Mr. Biden a “hero” for defeating Trump in the previous election.

He saved democracy in 2020.” “We need him to do it again in 2024,” Clooney explained.

Mr. Biden’s re-election campaign suffered another major defeat on Wednesday when one of his most prominent and long-time allies failed to endorse him.

When asked if she supported his run for a second term in the White House, former House Speaker Nancy Pelosi declined to say so.

Ms. Pelosi was asked on MSNBC’s Morning Joe if he had her backing to lead the Democratic ticket.

She responded, “It is up to the president to decide if he will run. “We’re all encouraging him to make that decision because time is running out.”

When asked if she wanted him to run, Ms. Pelosi stated, “I want him to do whatever he wants to do, and that’s the way it is.” We will go with whatever he decides.

Regarding the public debate over Mr. Biden’s future, Ms. Pelosi said, “I’ve told everyone, let’s just hold off, whatever you’re thinking, tell somebody privately, but you don’t have to put that out there until we see how we go this week.”

“Take a step towards financial freedom – claim your free Webull shares now!”

President Biden is hosting NATO’s 75th-anniversary summit in Washington DC this week and will hold a solo press conference on Thursday.

The occurrences are viewed as important tests of his mental health.

Several Congressional Democrats have expressed concern that Mr Biden’s performance may lose him the election and hurt them in Senate and House races.

Mr. Biden has slowed the momentum of the party revolt, while Democrats are divided on his future.

The president’s efforts to show his fitness for office included an interview with ABC’s George Stephanopoulos, in which he was interrogated about his fitness for office.

The media outlet TMZ broadcasted a video of the TV anchor being asked on camera by someone in the street, “Do you think Biden should step down?”

Mr Stephanopoulos responded, “I don’t think he can serve four more years.”

He has since offered an apology. ABC News stated that Mr Stephanopoulos “expressed his point of view, not the position of ABC News.”
