Dave Portnoy Lights Up George Clooney: If Biden Was So Far Gone—Why’d You Wait 3 Weeks to Tell Us?

Breaking News Politics USA World

Barstool Sports founder and popular social media personality Dave Portnoy posted an internet rant Wednesday night blasting actor and Democrat cheerleader George Clooney for his op-ed calling on Joe Biden to step away from his reelection campaign. Clooney argued that the president is not “even the Joe Biden of 2020. He was the same man we all witnessed at the debate.” 


Brutal words, George.

Wasn’t it just last month that you held a glitzy Tinseltown fundraiser that brought in $28 million for the befuddled president? Question: Why did you wait three weeks to tell Americans this very important news? 

Inquiring minds want to know, and Dave Portnoy has an inquiring mind. (Warning: major profanity):

George Clooney, what a f—— hero this guy is, huh? Comes forward today — now, this guy threw a fundraiser, raised tens of millions, co-chair for Biden, three weeks ago. Today comes out, he’s like, ‘Guess what? The guy you saw in the debate, that vegetable, that’s f—— Biden, he’s a vegetable. He was a vegetable three weeks ago.’ Acting like he’s doing some heroic thing.

Now, appreciation for internet rants can be in the eye of the beholder, and certainly, Portnoy is a loud, profane personality and has his detractors. He’s dead on here, though—Clooney got to play the Tinseltown hero by raking in huge amounts of cash for Biden, but now he’s belatedly stabbing him in the back weeks later. Not my kind of hero.

It doesn’t take the better part of a month to write an Op-Ed, George. 

One of the things I’ve focused on recently is the apparent astonishment across the Democratic universe regarding Biden’s decline. “I’m shocked! Shocked to find that gambling is going on in here!” they seem to be saying, but like the infamous Captain Louis Renault, played by Claude Rains in the 1942 classic “Casablanca,” they’ve known all along exactly what’s been going on. 


The New York Times, NBC’s Chuck Todd, Democrat lawmakers across the spectrum… They’re all saying, gosh, we didn’t see this coming. Even though the president’s decline has been in front of their—and our eyes—for years now. The dishonesty is off the charts.

I’m guessing Clooney—an extremely plugged-in Demcrat insider with a controversial progressive wife—like so many others, has known for a long time about Biden’s deterioration. But now he wants to be brave and make headlines by calling the president out. Are you just angling for a “Vanity Fair” cover? Where have you been for the last three and a half years, George? 

Portnoy was far from done:

“So what, George? If [Biden] didn’t do the debate… and wasn’t a vegetable, you were just going to keep your mouth shut?” Portnoy continued. “And by the way, if you just found out Biden was a vegetable, where have you been for two years? Everyone knows he’s a vegetable.”

Portnoy claimed Biden can’t “get on and off a stage without getting lost, he talks about dead people like he had lunch with them yesterday. He can’t f—— ride his bike without falling down. He can’t get up and down f—— Air Force One without taking a tumble. No s— he’s a vegetable. He’s been a vegetable for two f—— years. Democrats don’t care.”


Portnoy went on, and there’s plenty more in the above video. But he calls it right in his summation: “It’s all dirty politics.” 

Clooney knew, Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer knew, Vice President Kamala Harris knew, the list goes on ad nauseam… and yet they all lied to us. The chickens are coming home to roost, and good for Portnoy for calling it out, whatever you think of his style.

How stunning and brave are our Hollywood heroes!
