Slash The ‘Stache: David Axelrod Shaves Off His Mustache

After much (much, much) ado, the day is upon us: the day David Axelrod slashed his ‘stache on TV. The Obama adviser headed over to Morning Joe on Friday to make good on his promise to shave off his mustache of 40 years after hitting $1 million in donations for epilepsy research.

Axelrod thanked those who donated, particularly those who couldn’t afford to write big checks, but still gave what they could — and spoke briefly about the notes he received from those who have also dealt with epilepsy. “There are people who have lost a lot more than a mustache, to epilepsy,” he said.

With his wife Susan accompanying him, Axelrod plopped himself in the chair and a professional took over. A few minutes later, the deed was done. (…and Donald Trump, who donated, called into the show.)
