Hollywood Donor Calls on Biden to Drop Out of Presidential Race

Longtime Hollywood donor Damon Lindelof is calling on Democrats to “stop giving” money to President Joe Biden’s presidential campaign.

“My name is Damon Lindelof,” he wrote in a piece for Deadline. “I am a lifelong Democrat and I love my complicated, glorious country. I am not writing this anonymously because I’m asking others in positions of influence to do the same.” 

“I don’t know if what I have to say will matter, but I know what my eyes and my ears and my heart tell me,” he added. “I’ve been asleep at the wheel and it’s time to wake the [expletive] up.”

The TV writer and producer has reportedly been a significant contributor to Democratic campaigns including Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton and Biden.

“When a country is not behaving how we want them to, we apply harsh economic sanctions. It’s a give and take — Short term hurt for long term healing,” Lindelof wrote. 

“When they text you asking for cash, text back that you’re not giving them a penny and you won’t change your mind until there’s change at the top of the ticket,” he added. “And when Joe finally leaves the mound, I will stand and applaud. Because he truly pitched a great game.”
