According to X user @dom_lucre, Jack Black dramatically announced his endorsement of President Biden while brutally lashing out at former President Donald Trump. Accompanied by former President Obama, Joe Biden, and several Hollywood stars, Black offered his political take, as Biden hauled in a substantial amount of $30M for his re-election campaign.

Jack Black’s Political Involvement Becomes a Hotly Debated Topic

While President Joe Biden successfully acquired a massive star power standing behind him, urging attendees and viewers to support his bid for the White House, Jack Black ignited controversies across the political spectrum. Despite his attendance alongside George Clooney and Julia Roberts helping Biden to raise a staggering $30M in the fundraising event, Black’s involvement became a topic of debate.

Since the actor is often known for his comedic and entertaining roles in fan-favorite movies like Gulliver’s Travels, Kung Fu Panda franchise, King Kong, and more, it seemingly became difficult for netizens to see him get involved in politics. Therefore, Black’s attendance at the event, alongside the other stars, drew significant attention, suggesting their endorsements are baseless since they are out of touch with everyday Americans.

Former President Donald Trump Collecting New Endorsements

Meanwhile, former President Donald Trump who is currently out of the spotlight, made headlines a few days back for slowly picking up celebrity endorsements from country singer Jason Aldean, model Amber Rose, and Jon Voight, via US News. Additionally, ahead of Joe Biden’s fundraising event, Trump had blatantly expressed “surprise” over pop superstar Taylor Swift not yet endorsing him for president.

As the 2024 presidential race intensifies, the role of celebrities in politics continues to be a hotly debated topic. With each endorsement and fundraiser, the stakes grow higher, and the spotlight intensifies on both the candidates and those who support them. For now, Joe Biden’s campaign has received a substantial financial boost, while Donald Trump remains in the shadows.
