Actor Goldwyn, on the other hand, hasn’t looked back on his tenure in office all that great.

He “behaved very badly in many situations.” Goldwyn’s advice to Biden was: “Tell them [der amerikanischen Bevölkerung, Anm. d. Red.]That you exist for them. Tell them they’ll make you a better man.” After his speech, Biden can relax “with popcorn and red wine.”

President Biden praised actress Geena Davis, who played President Mackenzie Allen in the US television series “Hello, Mrs. President” from 2005 to 2006. Davis knows from his own experience “how difficult this job is.” There was “a new crisis every week” that she had to face.

Michael DouglasWho played the role of US President Andrew Shepard in the comedy film “Hello, Mr. President” in 1995, learned from his experience as an American head of state that “love and compassion as a leader are strengths, not weaknesses.”
