George Clooney calls on Biden to exit race

Clooney wrote an op-ed in the New York Times asking Biden to leave the race.

Actor George Clooney, a high-profile supporter and fundraiser for President Joe Biden, has called on Biden to leave the presidential race.

Clooney expressed his love for Biden in an opinion piece in the New York Times, but argued that the party would lose the presidential race and control of Congress if Biden remained the nominee.


The big picture: He stated that this opinion is shared by senators, congress members, and governors he has spoken to privately.

  • Clooney suggested the party should choose a new nominee at the upcoming convention, mentioning Vice President Kamala Harris and governors Wes Moore, Gretchen Whitmer, and Gavin Newsom as potential candidates.
  • Clooney emphasized Biden’s age and observed a difference in his presence and energy compared to past years.

Flashback: Last month, Clooney, along with Julia Roberts and Barbra Streisand, participated in a fundraiser that raised over $30 million for Biden’s campaign.

  • Other individuals who have interacted closely with Biden also noted a decrease in his presence and energy at a recent Los Angeles event.
