Anti-Trump actor George Clooney claimed, during a promotional tour for his new film ‘Midnight Sky,’ that now was ‘Joe Biden’s moment.’
Clooney went on to praise Biden for his compassion and kindness, but notably didn’t cite the numerous allegations of deep foreign corruption that have dogged his candidacy.
As The Daily Wire reports:
“I feel like we’re in so much better shape because I do think this: Moments meet the man or woman. And this moment is Joe Biden’s moment,” he said. “He is a compassionate, kind man. And we’re going to need that after we’ve lost probably … close to 400,000 people by the time we get this [pandemic] in our rear-view mirror. And jobs and careers and how many other people were sick.”
“We’re going to need compassion through this and [Biden] is every bit of that, on top of being a very smart, wise guy, wise man,” he said. “But I think that this is going to be a really effective presidency because of that. He’s going to have a hard time in the Senate.”
George Clooney has been wading heavily into current events in recent weeks due to the Netflix release of his sci-fi adventure “The Midnight Sky.” Speaking with Howard Stern recently, he admonished Americans who refuse to wear a mask.
“Your freedom is this: You’re free to smoke until your lungs turn black, but you can’t do it on the bus. And you’re free to drink until your liver comes out your a**, but you can’t drink and then get behind the wheel of a car,” he added.
