David Axelrod Criticizes Biden’s ABC Interview As ‘Out of Touch’

Former Obama adviser David Axelrod has voiced strong criticism of President Joe Biden’s recent interview with ABC News, calling it “sad” and suggesting that Biden is dangerously disconnected from voter concerns. Axelrod’s comments followed Biden’s poor performance in the debate against former President Donald Trump, sparking renewed doubts about Biden’s fitness for a second term.

Axelrod, who worked closely with Biden during the Obama administration, shared his thoughts on social media. “The president is rightfully proud of his record. But he is dangerously out of touch with the concerns people have about his capacities moving forward and his standing in this race,” Axelrod wrote on X, the social platform formerly known as Twitter. He pointed out that while Biden was leading Trump by 10 points at this stage in his previous campaign, he is now six points behind.

The interview, intended to mitigate the fallout from Biden’s debate performance, did little to reassure many Democratic voters. Biden described his debate performance as “a bad night,” but Axelrod’s critique highlighted deeper issues regarding Biden’s age and health.

The public rebuke from Axelrod, a prominent Democrat, signals growing unease within the party about Biden’s ability to lead and win re-election. As Biden’s standing in the polls continues to falter, the pressure on him to address these issues transparently is likely to increase.
