    CNN contributor David Axelrod said Tuesday on “The Situation Room” that the Arizona Supreme Court upholding a 123-year-old law that bans all abortions except to save the life of the mother was an “earthquake” that could “tip this election.” Axelrod said, “This has put the health care of women in peace of mind of women across Arizona at risk. And so we should not forget the substance in this.”

    Conservatives have speculated that Michelle Obama could replace Biden in the presidential race. Former first lady Michelle Obama has no plans on replacing President Joe Biden in the 2024 presidential election, former Obama White House advisor David Axelrod said. Axelrod told CNN host Michael Smerconish on Saturday that Michelle Obama "never was interested in a political life" even though her husband, former President Barack Obama, ran for U.S. Senate in 2004 and later served in the White House from 2009 to 2017. "She is not someone who likes politics. She doesn't like the tone and tenor of politics." Speaking to...

    Former White House aide and CNN contributor David Axelrod on Friday criticized President Biden for snapping at a reporter for the network who earlier asked about concerns regarding his memory and age. “Donald Trump is a gaffe-machine himself, but because he is energetic these questions are not as profound for him,” Axelrod said Friday. More concerning, Axelrod said of Biden, “was the way he reacted to [CNN reporter] MJ [Lee] when she asked a question, that was completely legitimate, which is what are you going to do about the fact that so many people have this question, and he snapped...

    Former Obama adviser David Axelrod doubled down after President Biden reportedly called him a "pr---" and argued that the president has a "real problem" if he thinks he can "cheat nature." New York Times columnist Maureen Dowd defended Axelrod in a column published on Sunday, criticizing Biden for engaging in "petty feuds." "I don’t care about them thinking I’m a prick — that’s fine," Axelrod told Dowd. "I hope they don’t think the polls are wrong, because they’re not." Axelrod, who Dowd noted has defended Biden in the past, told Dowd that Biden thinks he can "cheat nature," drawing a...

    Former Obama adviser David Axelrod brushed aside reporting that President Biden used colorful language to complain about his recent commentary about Biden’s reelection chances and political future. Politico’s Jonathan Martin, who has covered Biden for years, reported Monday that Biden referred to him as a “--‑‑‑” following Axelrod’s recent comments, citing a person who has heard Biden use the word on occasion in private. Axelrod, who is now a CNN contributor and political analyst, was asked about Martin’s reporting during an appearance on the network Monday.

    Democratic strategist David Axelrod played down comments he made Monday which implied President Biden should drop out of the 2024 race. “It’s overreacting to say I told him to drop out,” the senior Obama advisor told Politico on Tuesday. “I didn’t do that.” “He’s the only one to make the decision. And if his decision is ‘no, I’m the best person to take this on,’ then he will,” he added. Axelrod sent a dire warning to the president on Monday, saying poor polling numbers “will send tremors of doubt thru the party.”

    The political strategist who propelled Joe Biden into the vice presidency in 2008 has suggested the president should consider exiting the 2024 race after another brutal poll. David Axelrod pointed to Sunday polling from The New York Times and Siena College that shows the 80-year-old trialing behind Donald Trump in Arizona, Georgia, Michigan, Nevada and Pennsylvania. 'Only Joe Biden can make this decision. If he continues to run, he will be the nominee of the Democratic Party,' Axelrod said on X, formerly Twitter. 'What he needs to decide is whether that is wise; whether it's in HIS best interest or...

    CNN political analyst David Axelrod said Tuesday on CNN’s “The Situation Room” that House Republicans who want to impeach President Joe Biden were not serious people. Anchor Wolf Blitzer said, “The White House says it’s for Republicans to decide whether to go ahead and try to impeach President Biden. What do you make of that strategy to deflect away from this escalation by House Republicans?”

    Democratic strategist David Axelrod said the Green Party bid by academic Cornel West could draw votes away from President Biden, leading to a victory for former President Trump. “In 2016, the Green Party played an outsized role in tipping the election to Donald Trump. Now, with Cornel West as their likely nominee, they could easily do it again. Risky business,” he tweeted.

    During CNN’s election coverage on Wednesday, CNN Senior Political Commentator and former Obama adviser David Axelrod said that the message of the results in the 2022 midterm elections “wasn’t an affirmation of policies so much” as a rebuke of extremism and that he would advise President Joe Biden against being triumphant in addressing the results. Axelrod said, “Look, what I would advise would be to understand what the message was yesterday. I think it was a repudiation of extremism in all its forms. And I think he should note that and understand this wasn’t an affirmation of policies so much...

    The White House claims it only learned of the FBI’s stunning raid on former President Trump’s home in Florida on Twitter, at the same time the media did, according to multiple reports. As improbable as it may seem that the Department of Justice would execute a search warrant on a former president and political opponent of the administration without Biden’s knowledge, that’s what New York Times reporter Jonathan Martin tweeted Monday night. Trump was not home during the raid at the mansion known as Mar-a-Lago. “Senior White House officials found out about the FBI’s Mar a Lago raid on Twitter,...

    Listen to this article 0:00 / 2:23 1X BeyondWords California Gov. Gavin Newsom may be the Democratic Party's strongest choice to run for president if President Joe Biden bows out, longtime party strategist David Axelrod says. Axelrod, who served as former President Barack Obama's chief strategist, made the comments in a Wednesday statement to The New York Times. The 2024 presidential race has been a burning question for Democrats, with no clear heir to Biden and many party members skeptical of whether the president could or should run for a second term. "If the president were not to run, it’s...

    CNN political analyst David Axelrod said Friday on “Anderson Cooper 360” that the lawsuit attempting to disqualify Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) from reelection ballot access over her comments and tweets surrounding the January 6, 2021 riot at the Capitol will fail and increase her fundraising. Cooper said, “Do you think the case brought against Greene would be successful?”

    Jeffrey Goldberg, the editor-in-chief of Atlantic magazine, penned an article on the subject of disinformation to lead into the magazine's conference with Obama strategist David Axelrod in Chicago. We might expect him to at least mention the recent exposure of the falsehood that the information on Hunter Biden's laptop was "Russian disinformation."Now that The New York Times and The Washington Post finally got around to admitting the authenticity of Hunter's emails, you'd think now is a time for engaging with this inconvenient truth. However, in Goldberg's Wednesday article on the topic -- "Disinformation Is the Story of Our Age" --...

    CNN senior political commentator and former Obama adviser David Axelrod on Tuesday cautioned President Joe Biden “not to oversell where we are as a country” during his upcoming State of the Union address. Axelrod acknowledged that Biden should note the “progresses that have been made” during his presidency but said he should show “empathy” given the “terrible trauma” the nation has gone through.

    Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-Fla.) reportedly bragged to people involved in Florida politics that he had met women through a county tax collector who has since been hit with federal sex trafficking charges. Two people who heard his comments directly told The Washington Post that Gaetz had also showed them videos of nude women on his phone. Some of the videos were from parties with former Seminole County tax collector Joel Greenberg. The sources said the women in the videos appeared to be adults. “Matt was never shy about talking about his relationship to Joel and the access to women that...

    Former chief advisor to President Obama David Axelrod took to Twitter on Monday to criticize the Wisconsin judge presiding in the Kyle Rittenhouse trial, accusing him of being "a de facto defense attorney on the bench." Axelrod slammed Judge Bruce Schroeder after the latter dismissed a misdemeanor charge against Kyle Rittenhouse, the teenager facing murder charges for fatally shooting two protesters during unrest over police brutality last year in Kenosha, Wis. He further praised Rittenhouse's luck and said "this kid has the great good fortune of a de facto defense attorney on the bench."

    A group of anti-Trump Republicans on Thursday endorsed a slate of Democrats and centrist Republicans in the 2022 midterms to fight against the former president’s hold on the party. The Renew America Movement (RAM) announced it is backing a slew of lawmakers running for reelection. The group was founded by a group of moderates within the GOP after the Jan. 6 insurrection, which was fueled by then-President Trump’s lies about the election being stolen in November. “There is an urgent effort by Republicans and former Republicans to stem the tide of anti-democratic and lie-based Republican leaders in congress before it’s...

    The Nigerian government says it has "indefinitely suspended" Twitter's operations in the country, the Ministry of Information and Culture announced in a statement on Friday. "The Federal Government has suspended, indefinitely, the operations of the microblogging and social networking service, Twitter, in Nigeria," it read. The statement, which was posted on the ministry's official Twitter handle on Friday evening, accused the American social media company of allowing its platform to be used "for activities that are capable of undermining Nigeria's corporate existence." The suspension comes two days after Twitter deleted a tweet by President Muhammadu Buhari that was widely perceived...

    Sometimes, at the card table, an experienced poker player can read an opponent's hand by means of a "tell." Some players give obvious visual clues as to whether or not they are bluffing or holding good cards. In 2012, I recall David Axelrod, a Red Diaper Baby, and faux journalist who became a political operative and campaign manager, use the phrase "The cake is baked" to describe the likely outcome of the presidential election between Obama and Romney. In 2020, several leftist activists such as George Clooney and George Conway have used the same words. I have interpreted "the cake...
