Joy Behar blasted former Obama staffer David Axelrod this week after the senior aide questioned Joe Biden’s fitness for office; saying he should “keep his mouth shut” when talking about the President’s advanced age.

“David Axelrod should keep his mouth shut. And you know what, Ronald Reagan’s rule was thou shall not speak ill of a fellow Republican. And I say onto you, David Axelrod, do not speak ill of a fellow Democrat,” Behar asserted.
“I hate this talk about, I think people saying he’s too old, I mean, you know, if the former, you know, twice-impeached, disgraced president thinks he’s such a young spring chicken I mean he’s going to be 78 when Joe Biden is 81. I don’t like this ageism argument,” added co-host Sunny Hostin.
Axelrod was speaking with the New York Times when he was asked to comment on Biden’s prospects in 2024.
“The presidency is a monstrously taxing job and the stark reality is the president would be closer to 90 than 80 at the end of a second term, and that would be a major issue,” Axelrod told the outlet.
