Jeffrey Katzenberg, a film mogul and “influential advisor” to the president, reportedly told Biden to take notes from Mick Jagger and Harrison Ford regarding his age.
Age equals experience
Katzenberg is a co-founder of DreamWorks SKG and a national co-chair on Biden’s campaign, and according to the Wall Street Journal, he told the president to embrace his age and use it as an advantage.
Moves like Jagger
He used examples of Jagger, who turned 80 this year, and Ford, who are still rocking while on tour or during filming.
George Clooney to the rescue
As if having a Hollywood heavyweight behind the scenes wasn’t enough, the president has Clooney to rely on. Clooney said of Katzenberg, “He is determined, and the thing about Jeffrey is there’s just no version that he takes no for an answer,” adding, “Jeffrey will call, and I will help.”
This will bring billions to the campaign
Wall Street Journal alleged that the Hollywood mogul’s fundraisers could bring as much as $2 billion to help Biden’s re-election. But there’s more that Biden’s advisor brings to the table, as Clooney explained, “I always just say, look, everybody keeps coming into Hollywood for cash, and they don’t come to us for the one thing we do better than anybody, which is telling stories.”
He continued, “So I think it’s probably a very good idea that they’re going to Jeffrey not just for raising money but for narratives.”
Fighting for the cause
A Democratic strategist close to Katzenberg Paul Begala told the Journal, “I’ve never, ever had the sense that Jeffrey does this for what the business people call ROI,” adding, “He’s very much committed to Biden, for Biden, and I think he may be one of the few people who can talk to him as a near-peer.”
The two have a long-term friendship
Biden and Katzenberg reportedly met in the 80s, but they became friends during Biden’s time as Vice President. Katzenberg does not want a formal position or ambassadorship but is working with Biden because he believes in him.
Republicans are unbothered
Jesse Hunt, a Republican strategist, told the Wall Street Journal, “It’s another wealthy Hollywood celebrity whispering in the ear of a presidential candidate who is failing to connect with a working-class population that doesn’t feel like the administration is dealing with their economic concerns.”
Katzenberg is also close to Obama
The film mogul is a prominent Democratic ally and has raised tens of millions of dollars in campaign funds from people in the entertainment industry and advised Obama’s administration.
WSJ reported that he would do all that and more for Biden, whose age is the primary concern for Democratic voters.
Biden’s other issues
Despite his achievements, all-time low unemployment, and his commitment to workers’ unions and inclusive policies, Biden faces extremely low likability ratings.
Not the only one
But he is not the only one, as numerous surveys claim that people are tired of Trump and Biden, and the thought of them entering the 2024 presidential race is “exhausting.”
