Biden and Trump both fire off responses at George Clooney, but Joe’s is HILARIOUS


Actor George Clooney was one of the latest high-profile Democrats to call on President Joe Biden to drop his re-election bid – for the good of “democracy.”

But the swipe from the Biden cheerleader who appeared just a few short weeks ago at a Los Angeles fundraiser for the 81-year-old Democrat was met with a swift shot back from the Biden camp. Clooney’s call for Biden to step aside was even criticized by former President Donald Trump who slammed the actor for having “turned” against the president.

“I’m a lifelong Democrat; I make no apologies for that. I’m proud of what my party represents and what it stands for,” Clooney wrote in an op-ed in the New York Times in which he declared he loves Biden. ” I consider him a friend, and I believe in him. Believe in his character. Believe in his morals.”

However, the actor argued that the “fight against time” could not be won.

“It’s devastating to say it, but the Joe Biden I was with three weeks ago at the fund-raiser was 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,” Clooney wrote.

“Was he tired? Yes. A cold? Maybe. But our party leaders need to stop telling us that 51 million people didn’t see what we just saw. We’re all so terrified by the prospect of a second Trump term that we’ve opted to ignore every warning sign. The George Stephanopoulos interview only reinforced what we saw the week before,” he continued. “As Democrats, we collectively hold our breath or turn down the volume whenever we see the president, who we respect, walk off Air Force One or walk back to a mic to answer an unscripted question.”

Biden’s team fired back at Clooney with an ill-conceived comeback. According to New York Times reporter Annie Karni, it was Biden who outlasted Clooney at the L.A. fundraiser.

The “stamina” battle got plenty of attention on social media where users found it both surprising and pathetic.

Trump, who likely would prefer having feeble and mentally challenged Biden remain on the Democrat ticket, took to Truth Social to rip into Clooney.

“So now fake movie actor George Clooney, who never came close to making a great movie, is getting into the act. He’s turned on Crooked Joe like the rats they both are. What does Clooney know about anything?” he wrote.

“He uses the Democrat ‘talking point’ that Biden, the WORST President in the history of the United States, has ‘saved our Democracy.,'” Trump continued.

“Crooked Joe Biden didn’t save our Democracy, he brought our Democracy to its knees. Clooney should get out of politics and go back to television,” he continued. “Movies never really worked for him!!!”
