( – Comedian Bill Maher called for President Joe Biden to step aside and allow someone else to replace him.

In an opinion piece published July 1 in the New York Times, comedian and podcast host Bill Maher advocated for President Joe Biden to step aside in the upcoming presidential race, suggesting that Newsom “or someone else” could replace him.

In the piece, Maher noted that it was time for Democrats to discuss who should appear on the ballot in November. The comedian suggested anyone who had a (D) beside their name would make the race with former President Donald Trump “a tie,” because they would be a “fresh face who has spent less time in the spotlight” and who Americans hadn’t become fatigued from seeing.

Maher’s scathing essay follows Biden’s poor debate performance against Trump on Thursday last week.

The comedian also referenced the debate in his piece, noting that everyone ages “differently,” describing the aging process as a “true case-by-case.” He emphasized that Thursday’s debate “illustrated that vividly,” labeling Trump “vigorous” and Biden “vigorless.”

Maher also suggested the debate “wasn’t a tragedy” but a “blessing in disguise,” he then highlighted how he called on the President to “step aside almost a year ago,” and warned that if he didn’t he’d be “forever known as ‘Ruth Bader Biden.'”

Maher’s comments are a reference to the late Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, who passed in 2020 while she was still on the bench, allowing Trump, President at the time, to appoint Amy Coney Barrett.

The comedian and podcast host stated that every time he would discuss the idea of Biden stepping aside, it would be dismissed. Instead, he was told to “Get on board,” and that Democrats would “never replace” Biden. However, the debate changed that, and now the idea is “on the table where it always should have been.”

Maher explained an open convention would benefit Democrats, writing the party couldn’t “buy” the “enthusiasm, engagement, and interest” an open convention would generate.
