 Damon Lindelof Calls on Donors to Withhold Support for Biden After Debate Performance


President Joe Biden’s support is wavering following his dismal performance at the first 2024 presidential debate. Several wealthy contributors, including Hollywood producer Damon Lindelof, now refuse to endorse him. In a critique article for Deadline, Lindelof urged other supporters to “stop giving” money to a candidate he believes should withdraw from the race.

“My name is Damon Lindelof. I am a lifelong Democrat and I love my complicated, glorious country. 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. And when Joe finally leaves the mound, I will stand and applaud. Because he truly pitched a great game,” Lindelof wrote.

He continued, “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, ears, and heart tell me. I’ve been asleep at the wheel and it’s time to wake the f-k up. There is a choice before us and the choice is this – Do we leave our pitcher on the mound or do we go to the bullpen for relief?” He argued, “Our president’s debate performance has been characterized in many ways…disappointing, upsetting, terrifying… but for me, it was simply game-changing. So yes, let’s go with the bullpen, please. Let’s go with relief.”

Lindelof admitted that in the past he had celebrated Biden’s win, explaining, “Joe is a good man and a great president. And he has risen to leadership despite a level of loss and suffering that would bring me to my knees. I believe in Joe Biden. I believe in him so much that we wrote him a sizeable check as recently as two weeks ago,” given his opponent—Donald Trump. Outlining why Trump was an even worse choice, he penned, “The liar.

As per Fox News, The cheater. The rapist. The felon. Immune, immune, immune, courtesy of the highest court in the land. If elected, he would replace the two most conservative justices on that court with two who are thirty years younger.”

Lindelof also vehemently criticized the recent U.S. Supreme Court’s ‘immunity’ ruling in favor of the Republican leader. “[The ruling] means my teenage son will be seventy before there’s even a chance at a balanced court. So what is the remedy for imbalance?
