HBO’s late night comedian Bill Maher said Joe Biden should step aside and let someone younger run for president on the Democrat ticket in 2024.
During a discussion on Friday’s “Real Time,” Maher initially defended Biden, claiming “inflation is back down,” and the so-called Inflation Reduction Act has been passed in Congress, but nonetheless called for Biden to step down ahead of 2024.
Fox Nation host Piers Morgan asked, “But don’t you think the smart play actually is — I think Maureen Dowd wrote this last week — the smart play for Biden, I don’t think he should run again in 2024 –”
“I agree,” Maher responded.
– for the benefit of the Democrats,” Morgan finished. “I think what he should do is ride this wave he’s on now and say, now, actually, I’m not going to run again, find a young, dynamic person in the Democratic Party that he could get behind, and then they’ve got a good chance, I think.”
Maher replied, “Absolutely.”
“Be the sheriff who rides into town, I saved the town,” Maher continued. “And now, I’m Clint Eastwood and I’m riding out. Thank you, and good night.”
The majority of voters are concerned about Biden’s mental and physical fitness due to his constant gaffes and flubs on the world stage, and Democrats have taken notice.
