Axelrod: Pence embracing decision to go against Trump

Former Vice President Mike Pence has announced that he will campaign for Georgia Governor Brian Kemp. His former boss — Donald Trump — is backing Kemp's opponent, David Perdue — and has made Kemp one of his prime targets for the midterm elections. CNN senior political commentator David Axelrod discusses with John Berman and Kaitlan Collins. #CNN #News


  1. Call me crazy, but if my old boss had watched people chant about hanging me on live television and done nothing, I might not worry too much about “breaking” with him on anything.

  2. Trump: Give me money! Supporters: What do we get in return ? Trump: continue to praise me. Supporters: Deal!..🤪

  3. Pence has the power to distinguish cultist degeneration from the sort of Republicans who used to believe in principles. That would assume Pence actually has a moral spine in terms of what he used to espouse for the Republican party. Agree with him or not, that WOULD be one step toward recovery of a party that used to mean something. TBD…

    1. 100 percent wrong, but that is the leftist way. Other words focus on the left, sure it would be nice if Repubs do good things

  4. If Pence is really serious he should ask to be interviewed by the Jan 6 Committee. Stand up, Mike, show that your single show of courage on Jan 6 was not a fluke.

  5. So, this is no surprise to conservatives. Just like Grahm and McCarthy. You guys can have them.

  6. 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣 Pence 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣 thanks for the joke, I needed a good laugh today.

  7. I am not a fan of Pence. He let #45 do whatever he wanted but if it’s a choice between them 2, it’s not hard. At all.

    1. As opposed to a Kamala letting Brandon do whatever he wants??? What are you even talking about???? 😂🤣😂🤣😂

    1. @Cryst C O The problem is not so much inflation as it is corporate greed. Pretty much… Charging more for everything because they can. And because we have no other choice. But yeah, Go ahead and blame it on that old fart if ya want… Idc. It’s not gonna make a damn bit of difference.

  8. “The political arena leaves one no alternative, one must either be a dunce or a rogue.
    La arena política no deja alternativa, uno debe ser un tonto o un pícaro.”
    ― Emma Goldman (1869-1940, Planet Earth)

  9. Did anyone ever think they’d be rooting for kemp or pence to succeed? Strange days indeed…

  10. I have liked Pence since Jan. 6. He saved our nation because of his integrity and patriotism (or his lack of stupidity).

    1. I would hardly go that far. Remember how he tried to do what Trump wanted but was told he couldn’t invalidate the electors? He really wanted to please his master.

  11. Regardless of what you think about Pence, he is the one we have to thank for standing his ground at the Capitol on Jan. 6 The more we learn about what was going on the more serious that moment was. Pence said, “I’m not getting in that car.”

    1. He decided not to do their bidding after speaking to Dan Quayle and a judge who was versed in constitutional law.

    2. @[Hashknight Gaming] Exactly. And, as low of a bar as it may be, he actually did it. Which is more than can be said for several others, who either waited until after they were safely distanced enough to cash in with tell-all memoirs or who are still desperately clutching to the big lie to this very day.

  12. I may not agree with Pence politically I do think he is a good person and one of the few Republicans right now using common sense.

  13. Giuliani should be in jail for his ‘trial by combat’ speech. Why isn’t he? 🤷‍♂

  14. Mike Pence may not have called the lie a lie when he was in the white house, but he did stand up to Trump and all Trump’s men when it mattered the most and no one else has really done that.

  15. Nice to see people in the GOP with a spine. Whether you agree with them or not at least putting country/party over cult of personality is a lot more admirable
