Former Obama Senior Adviser David Axelrod said that if he knew about Hillary Clinton’s private server at the time he “would have concerns about it” and “if the St. Louis Cardinals can poach the secrets of the Houston Astros, then, you know, it speaks to the age in which we live” on Wednesday’s “Morning Joe” on MSNBC.
Axelrod said, when asked about the server, “I might have asked a few questions about that. You know, look, I don’t think, again, the question is what are people focused on, what do they care about? They care about their lives. They care about being able to meet their bills, they care about how their kids are going to do in the future. And that’s where their focus is and that’s what the gamble of the Clinton campaign is that people don’t really care about that.”
He added, “I would ask a question. Look, if the St. Louis Cardinals can poach the secrets of the Houston Astros, then, you know, it speaks to the age in which we live. So I would have concerns about it, but the question for this discussion is, moving forward, how much of an impact is that likely to have on the campaign? I’m not sure it’s going to have a big impact on the campaign.”
