“I love Joe Biden as a senator, vice president, and president,” wrote the Hollywood actor in an opinion piece in The New York Times. I also consider him a friend. I have faith in him. But Clooney noted that the Biden he saw at the June 15 fundraiser was not the Biden of 2010 or even the Biden of 2020. “Biden is the same man we all saw in the June 27 election debate,” he said. It’s an age thing. I don’t think we can win the November election with this president.
