Former Obama adviser David Axelrod reacted to Biden’s awful address this week, saying that it reinforces the idea that Biden is too old to be president. Axelrod has been voicing concerns about Biden for months, angering some people on the left in the process.
According to him, one of the worst things in politics is a moment like this that confirms a meme about you, in Biden’s case, that he is feeble and no longer has what it takes to run the country.
Axelrod made the comments during an appearance on CNN,

David Axelrod warns Biden presser ‘reinforces the meme’ that the president is too old: ‘Can’t unring the bell’
Former Obama advisor and CNN senior political analyst David Axelrod recently claimed that President Biden’s “angry” press conference in response to Special Counsel Robert Hur’s report on him “reinforces the meme” that the president is too old.
Axelrod told CNN anchor Anderson Cooper that the president’s defiant response Thursday night to Hur’s findings that he has “poor memory” and thus should not be charged for illegally holding classified documents, probably did not solve the “problem” of the majority of voters thinking he’s too old and too incompetent for the job…
“He did contradict elements of the special counsel’s report. And that undoubtedly will go on,” he said, adding, “And then he was quite angry, not just at the release, or the characterizations of the special counsel, but of what some of the reporters were asking him.”
Axelrod stressed that the age and mental fitness issue is “a problem for the president” and warned that Biden seems to be “reinforcing” people’s impression of him as too old.
“Anderson, the most damaging things that can happen in politics – there are things that reinforce a meme that’s out there that is hurting you. And the central meme that is hurting the president is this issue of age. It’s a big barrier.”
Democrats are deeply worried about this and they should be. Biden did a lot of damage to himself with that address.
It confirmed what many people already thought about him.
