SHOCK: Former Obama Adviser David Axelrod Comes to Trump’s Defense

One thing that many a political pundit can agree on this political season is this — Don’t try to predict anything for this election has been filled with unexpected revelations and outcomes. This surprise didn’t just end with the election of reality TV star and real estate mogul Donald Trump as president after his stunning defeat of corrupt, serial liar Hillary Clinton to become America’s 45th president. Surprises are still continuing to this day.

Here’s one that’ll knock  your socks off.

David Axelrod, former chief adviser to President Barack Obama, has come to the defense of President-elect Donald Trump in the wake of media criticism of his transition team. Some media outlets have suggested that the fact that Trump has not made many appointments thus far, just over a week since winning the election, is an indication that his transition team is in disarray.

Axelrod addressed this assertion on Twitter as not being a fair shot.

Someone attempted to convince Axelrod that the GOP would be doing the same or worse.

Axelrod then set the guy straight with a bit of reality.

Kudos to David Axelrod for being intellectually honest in regards to criticism of Trump’s appointments and his transition team.
