Joe Biden can no longer hide from Tara Reade’s allegations of sexual assault. Despite Biden’s best efforts to ignore his accuser, the accusations are finally starting to get the attention they deserve.
Democrat double standards are on full display as the party finds itself “in an awkward position of vigorously validating women who come forward with their stories while defending the man who will be their standard-bearer in…the most important election of their lifetimes.” Biden, hidden away in his basement as his scandal grows to unavoidable proportions, is “saying nothing about the allegation.”
Adding to the rampant hypocrisy: Biden’s all-female VP shortlist. Featuring famed 2020 losers like Elizabeth Warren and Kamala Harris, it could double as a list of political figures who most vocally proclaimed to “believe all women” during the Kavanaugh confirmation. Their silence on the Tara Reade allegations proves that their partisanship comes before believing women.
Bottom Line: If Democrats didn’t have double standards, they’d have no standards at all. Joe Biden and his fellow Democrats owe Mainers an answer to Tara Reade’s shocking allegations.
