Biden in Trouble: George Clooney Urges President to Withdraw from Presidential Race

Los Angeles, California – Hollywood actor George Clooney has publicly criticized Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden, urging him to withdraw from the race. Clooney, a prominent Democratic supporter, expressed concerns about Biden’s performance during recent events, including a fundraising event in Los Angeles.

At a fundraising event co-hosted by Clooney, Julia Roberts, and Barbra Streisand, Biden reportedly raised a record-breaking $30 million for his campaign. Despite this support, Clooney pointed out that Biden’s performance at the debate against Donald Trump was lacking, leading him to question Biden’s ability to win the November election.

In an opinion piece in The New York Times, Clooney emphasized that the Democratic leaders must acknowledge the concerns raised by members of Congress and the public regarding Biden’s candidacy. He stated, “Our party leaders need to stop telling us that 51 million people didn’t see what we just saw. This is about age. Nothing more. We are not going to win in November with this president.”

The criticism from Clooney comes as other Democratic leaders, including Nancy Pelosi, have also expressed doubts about Biden’s ability to lead the party to victory. While Biden has reaffirmed his commitment to continuing his campaign, the growing dissent within the party raises questions about his viability as a candidate.

Senate Democrats, including Michael Bennet and Peter Welch, have publicly voiced concerns about Biden’s candidacy, with some calling for his withdrawal from the race. Despite this, there is still support for Biden from other Democratic leaders like Gavin Newsom and members of the Congressional Black Caucus.

As Biden faces increasing scrutiny and calls for him to step aside, his campaign remains steadfast in its commitment to see the race through to the end. With pressure mounting from within his own party, Biden must navigate the challenges ahead as he seeks to secure the Democratic nomination for the presidency.
