Top Obama advisor David Axelrod delivers verdict on Biden interview: 'Sad to watch'

Former Obama adviser and CNN political analyst David Axelrod gave a bad review of President Biden's ABC interview, calling the Friday program "sad to watch." 

“When George Stephanopoulos asked him if he’d be willing to take a cognitive test, he said, ‘I take a cognitive test every day.’ Well, the fact is, that may be true, but 75% of the American people think he fails,” Axelrod said on a post-interview panel on CNN.

Biden on Friday rejected calls from Democratic officials to step aside from the party's presidential nomination, saying only the "Lord Almighty" could convince him not to run against Trump. Axelrod said Biden must be confronted with the reality of how he's polling against Trump.

“And some somebody really needs to be honest with him about it. It’s not, it can’t be the good Lord, but it should be people who love and care for him and his closest advisers, his portrait of where he is in this race doesn’t comport with reality,” Axelrod said.
