During an interview with New York Times Executive Editor Dean Baquet and The Washington Post Executive Editor Marty Baron on Saturday’s edition of The Axe Files With David Axelrod, host David Axelrod did his best to get the two men to bash President Trump on multiple occasions throughout the interview. At one point, Axelrod tried to use the ethnic backgrounds of Baquet and Baron as he sought to get them to criticize the President’s rhetoric on immigration and race, saying  We have a President who has said incendiary things about immigrants, about race,” and later asking them “how do you process that? And how does that impact how you make decisions?” Axelrod later brought up the President’s reference of his Former Staffer Omarosa Manigault-Newman as a “dog,” asking BaquetDid you view that as a racist comment?”
