President Barack Obama strategist David Axelrod shaved his signature mustache live on MSNBC Friday after raising more than $1 million for his epilepsy charity.
Axelrod first wagered his whiskers on "Morning Joe" if Obama lost Minnesota, Michigan or Pennsylvania on Election Day. After Obama carried all three, Axelrod vowed instead to bare his upper lip if supporters raised the money. His daughter, Lauren, has epilepsy -- something he referenced during the 2012 election when discussing the health care law.
"No shrieking," Axelrod said as it got buzzed away.
