(ReclaimingAmerica.net) – In a fun-to-watch case of bickering inside the highest Democrat echelons of power, Joe Biden has attacked a key ally of his former boss, Barack Obama, by calling him a term referring to female genitalia – after the aide declared the president shouldn’t run for reelection.
Biden called Democrat strategist David Axelrod, who was behind Obama’s election wins in 2008 and 2012, a “p****,” according to a report by Politico columnist Jonathan Martin, cited by Fox News.
Biden’s comment came after Axelrod recently argued that the president should quit the White House race.
In his article published Monday, Martin critically assessed Biden’s reelection campaign strategy, dwelling on the president’s reported private remarks about Axelrod.
“Calling David Axelrod ‘a p—-,’ as a person who has heard Biden use the word says he does in private, is not a strategy to win 270 electoral votes. And repeating a PG version of the same animus in public while litigating polling with the White House press corps also won’t make Biden’s reelection any likelier,” the Politico columnist wrote.
Axelrod has publicly questioned the wisdom of Biden seeking reelection, citing concerns over unfavorable swing-state polls, Democratic apprehensions about his age, and his capability to defeat former President Trump again.
Biden has disputed the recent poll results in response to a question from Fox News White House correspondent Peter Doocy.
“Because you don’t read the polls — there are 10 polls — eight of them I’m beating him in. You guys only do two. CNN, New York Times, check it out. We’ll get you a copy,” the president told reporters.
Martin pointed out that voters and “Democratic elites” are primarily worried about Biden’s age and the escalating cost of living.
He also commented on Biden’s use of fundraisers to dismiss his difficulties and complain about press coverage, suggesting that such actions are more self-soothing than strategically advantageous.
Looking ahead to the 2024 election, Martin characterized it as “extraordinary,” highlighting Biden’s unique challenges as the oldest president in U.S. history.
“The oldest president in history when he first took the oath, Biden will not be able to govern and campaign in the manner of previous incumbents. He simply does not have the capacity to do it, and his staff doesn’t trust him to even try, as they make clear by blocking him from the press,” the columnist opined.
