George Clooney Calls For Biden To Drop Out of 2024 Presidential Race


On Tuesday, former Obama adviser Jon Favreau broke his silence about President Biden’s mental clarity, less than 24 hours after George Clooney published a damaging op-ed in The New York Times demanding the president drop out of the 2024 race.

“It was not surprising to any of us who were at the fundraiser. I was there. Clooney was exactly right, and every single person I talked to at the fundraiser thought the same thing, except for the people working for Joe Biden, or at least they didn’t say that,” Jon Favreau, a member of the group often referred to as the “Obama bros” during his tenure in the White House, said during an appearance on CNN.

Favreau was referring to the fundraiser Clooney wrote about in his guest essay, where the actor complained that “not the Joe ‘big F-ing deal’ Biden of 2010. He wasn’t even the Joe Biden of 2020. He was the same man we all witnessed at the debate.”

In the editorial, Clooney said Democratic party leaders needed to quit telling Americans who saw what we just watched on TV that “they didn’t see what they saw with their own eyes” and accused them of having ignored previous ‘red flag’ warning signs about Biden.

Favreau concurred, adding to CNN: “I remember my wife, Emily, turned to me after the fundraiser and said, ‘What are we going to do?’ And I said, ‘Well, there is a debate in a week. Either he’ll do well in the debate, and we’ll think he was just tired because he flew all the way back from Europe, and that’ll be that, or he’ll be like this at the debate and then the whole country will be talking about it. So, here we are.”

Favreau’s most recent remarks come one day after he devoted roughly half of the latest episode of “Pod Save America” to chiding Biden alongside two other hosts and major campaign advisers on the first post-debate episode, or as an Obama phone pal dubbed them in his defense (with less cruelty),the star-studded cast was criticized: these guys are “Obama bros.”

“I thought it was bad, and, at times, very hard to watch,” former Obama adviser Tommy Vietor said during the podcast, referencing Biden’s sit-down interview with ABC’s George Stephanopoulos last week that came as part of an effort by Biden to quell critics calling for him to exit the presidential race.

“The debate was just a bad night. We all saw it,” fellow former adviser Jon Lovett said. “The explanations are kind of vague… That doesn’t do enough to assuage our concerns about what we saw that night. Right? So, the explanations don’t offer anything.”

One source told Fox News Digital Tuesday that Biden is not dropping out of the 2024 race and his campaign indicated it plans to go full steam ahead.
