Peter Doocy explained the situation: “And this is extraordinary. Just a few minutes ago, George Clooney has posted an op-ed in the New York Times. I’m going to read a line from it. He says, ‘I love Joe Biden as a senator, as a vice president and president. I consider him a friend. I believe in him, believe in his character, believe in his morals.'”

Despite this admiration, Clooney believes a change is necessary. “But he goes on to say he thinks that they need a new presidential nominee,” Doocy continued. This sentiment comes on the heels of a recent debate performance that left Clooney questioning Biden’s ability to energize the party and the nation.

 

Doocy also reminded viewers of Biden’s recent efforts to shore up support among influential Democrats. “Remember, just a couple weeks ago, President Biden raced back from Europe to get to Los Angeles for a George Clooney-hosted fundraiser where Barack Obama was also there. Bill Clinton was there,” Doocy noted.

 

Clooney’s call for a new top of the ticket is expected to resonate strongly both at the White House and in Wilmington. “George Clooney is now saying that, after he watched the debate, he wants a new top of the ticket. That is going to sting here at the White House and also in Wilmington,” Doocy concluded.
