George Clooney is not getting into politics. This is in spite of rumors that he might be interested in running for public office. That won’t stop the actor from having a few political hot takes.

Clooney shot down any rumors about him getting political with his career, because he doesn’t want the stress. He also noted that Joe Biden deserves a break, because he’s doing the best he can as POTUS.

While sitting down with BBC’s Andrew Mar, George Clooney plugged his new film The Tender Bar. The conversation went into politics and the former ER star’s interest in taking the leap. This was met with Clooney shooting it down.

It was noted that Biden’s poll numbers are down, especially after the situation in Afghanistan. George Clooney then said that those are fleeting statistics and always changing. He is still backing Joe Biden in a big way and he compared the issues that the U.S is having to a battered child, because thinking that they’ll be okay by the first day of school is “foolish.”


When it comes down to it, a lot of healing needs to go down and that will take time. Repairing something like a country is a tricky situation, but Biden is doing his best according to George Clooney. It’s not a big deal that Biden isn’t fixing things immediately for Clooney.

George Clooney said he wants no part in politics himself. This was a stern statement and he stood by it. We’ll have to see if he waivers on that take, because he certainly hasn’t lost his political mindset.

Years of experience in writing, journalism, and digging exclusive insider info for Ringside News opened the door for a new opportunity for Jenkins. With a history in finance, he broke into the journalism game by writing on blogs and other freelance websites before branching into sports and entertainment news. Being in tune with pop culture doesn't mean it has to make sense, but he tries. Favorite bands include any group from Seattle who formed between 1991 and 1999. 5 Ozzfests under his belt and 12 Warped Tours, but his last concert was a bluegrass AC/DC cover band that was not 100% terrible.
