Michael Douglas Is ‘Deeply Involved’ About Biden Staying In 2024 Race – The Boston Courier


Michael Douglas isn’t satisfied that President Joe Biden can beat Donald Trump.

The “Wall Street” star joined a rising refrain of Democrats on Wednesday when, throughout an look on “The View,” he stated the mounting query if Biden ought to drop out of the race is “a tough one” — earlier than admitting to feeling “deeply, deeply concerned.”

“I adore the guy,” Douglas, who held a fundraiser in his dwelling for Biden in April, advised the panel. “Fifty years of public service, a wonderful guy, and this just happens to be one of these elections that is just so crucial, and it’s really hard. I don’t worry necessarily today or tomorrow, but a year down the line, I worry. I am concerned.”

Douglas stated he had been “looking at some politicians who spoke about Biden dropping out last week and all of a sudden, this week, now they’re hedging their bets.”

He added that “we need some courage” within the matter from “both parties.”

Biden’s disastrous efficiency towards Trump within the presidential debate final month has spurred 5 Democratic members of Congress, in addition to longtime strategists like James Carville, to induce Biden to bow out — and invigorate voters with a brand new presidential nominee.

Former Home Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.), in the meantime, left the door to Biden’s exit open.

Even George Clooney has joined the fray. He extolled the president’s character, profession and morals in an op-ed for The New York Instances earlier than revealing that “the Joe Biden” he met in 2010 and 2020 was not “the same man we all witnessed at the debate.”

Douglas agreed together with his fellow Oscar winner Wednesday — and stated “it’s a valid point.”

“I’m deeply, deeply concerned,” he continued on the present. “I mean, especially it’s difficult because the Democrats have a big bench, they’ve got a lot of heavy hitters, a lot of talent. And I do worry because with the debate … I mean, it was relatively simple.”

“First of all, they should have just told the president to stand up, put a little makeup on for the debate … and then where to look, and call the other guy [a convicted felon],” he continued. “And just don’t deal with all of your facts — just deal with [Trump’s] lies.”

A post-debate CNN ballot confirmed 67% % of viewers felt Trump carried out higher than Biden, who just lately tried to reassure voters he’s up for the job with an interview on ABC Information. The president maintained Monday that he’s “not going anywhere.”
