George Clooney Urges Joe Biden to Withdraw from Presidential Election, Calls for New Candidate

Actor Pleas for President Biden to Step Down in Presidential Race

Date: March 24, 2022

George Clooney, a long-time Democratic Party fundraiser and donor, has urged President Joe Biden to drop out of the 2022 presidential election, citing his age as a significant obstacle to his campaign success.

Growing List of Celebrity Critics

Clooney joined a growing chorus of celebrities and party strategists calling for Biden’s removal from the race, following his underwhelming debate performance against Republican challenger Donald Trump.

Personal Connection but Professional Reality

In his opinion piece for The New York Times, Clooney emphasized his deep respect for Biden and believes him to be a friend. Despite this personal affection, he believes age is taking a toll on Biden’s performance and prospects.

Fundraising Event Host

Clooney co-hosted a high-profile fundraiser event with Biden in Los Angeles last month, which raised a staggering $28 million. However, at the event, attendees described the former vice president in less glowing terms than past years, echoing Clooney’s views.

Potential Contenders Urged to Emerge

With age clearly a concern, the film actor encouraged the Democratic party to explore alternative contenders, such as Vice President Kamala Harris and Maryland Governor Wes Moore. Clooney suggested that this development could provide clarity for the party’s election strategy going forward.

Despite his support for Biden and its leadership, the party should hearken to voices urging change from within its ranks, ensuring unity and viability for the party at next month’s Democratic convention, where its candidate will be finalised.
