Things are not looking good for Biden.
In a recent interview with CNN, former President Barack Obama’s senior advisor David Axelrod appears to have thrown President Biden under the bus and admitted that Biden is completely “out of control” and he added that Biden “not in command.”
In transcript provided by Fox, CNN’s Jake Taper talked about Biden’s plan to destroy the filibuster and said, “Well he’s not going to be able to get it done. Manchin and Sinema aren’t going to do it and those are just the two taking it on the chin for it. There are lots of Democratic senators very concerned – less publicly so – about changing the filibuster rules for the reason I explained.”
Axelrod replied, “Yes, yes, and Manchin and Sinema provide a cover for them.”
Axelrod then said, “I mean this is the lot that Biden finds himself in. There is this sense that things are kind of out of control and he’s not in command. And this lends to that.”
Axelrod then talked about the inflation which has occurred under Biden’s presidency saying, “Inflation, no one president can control inflation, but it is a gale force wind right now. It’s effecting politics. You heard him on gas prices today. He talks about the gas tax holiday, but he is not going to get the gas tax holiday and there are a lot of Americans who are skeptical about whether that would help.”
“So, you know, this is a very, very fraught environment for him right now,” added.
