Hollywood leftist’s hypocrisy has reached new heights.

You may recall the story of how Joe Biden blew off a peace summit revolving around Ukraine to rush back from the G7 to attend a Hollywood fundraiser hosted in part by Hollywood elite George Clooney.

That was the fundraiser that created a huge controversy. Barack Obama had to take Biden by the hand to lead him off the stage and the media described the viral video of the event as a “cheap fake,” although it was not. It’s just that, at that time, they were still attempting to cover up Biden’s clear mental decline.

Now, Clooney has publicly urged Joe Biden to step down and not seek re-election, citing concerns over his age and recent public appearances.

Clooney, previously seen mingling with political elites at high-profile fundraisers, expressed his concerns in a New York Times op-ed on Wednesday.

Clooney wrote:

I’m a lifelong Democrat; I make no apologies for that. I’m proud of what my party represents and what it stands for. As part of my participation in the democratic process and in support of my chosen candidate, I have led some of the biggest fund-raisers in my party’s history. Barack Obama in 2012. Hillary Clinton in 2016. Joe Biden in 2020. Last month I co-hosted the single largest fund-raiser supporting any Democratic candidate ever, for President Biden’s re-election. I say all of this only to express how much I believe in this process and how profound I think this moment is.

I love Joe Biden. As a senator. As a vice president and as president. I consider him a friend, and I believe in him. Believe in his character. Believe in his morals. In the last four years, he’s won many of the battles he’s faced.

But the one battle he cannot win is the fight against time. None of us can. 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.

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. 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.

Is it fair to point these things out? It has to be. This is about age. Nothing more. But also nothing that can be reversed. We are not going to win in November with this president. On top of that, we won’t win the House, and we’re going to lose the Senate. This isn’t only my opinion; this is the opinion of every senator and congress member and governor that I’ve spoken with in private. Every single one, irrespective of what he or she is saying publicly.

Clooney himself is now affirming what we’ve ALL been observing since Biden’s basement campaign back in 2020.

It’s not just “one bad night,” it’s every day and night.

Why now? Why not when the “cheap fake” narrative dropped?

Clooney and other Hollywood A-listers helped Biden raise a staggering $28 million at the Los Angeles fundraiser last month. The event, held at the Peacock Theater, featured late-night host Jimmy Kimmel interviewing Biden and former President Barack Obama.

Watch Obama physically guiding Biden off stage following the 40-minute interview with Jimmy Kimmel:

Unfortunately, for Democrats it’s too late to replace Joe Biden.

Their only chance is for Biden to voluntarily and gracefully step aside. However, this option appears improbable, given his letter to House Democrats earlier this week, in which he asserted that he “firmly committed to staying in the race.”
