Tara Reade, the woman who claimed last year that Joe Biden sexually assaulted her back in 1993, is now putting the president on blast for making comments concerning New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo and all the sex scandals he’s currently facing.
Reade made the remarks during an interview with Fox News. She didn’t mince words and they were aimed directly at President Biden who recently chatted with ABC News.
Biden said that the believed Cuomo should resign if the state attorney general’s investigation confirms sexual harassment allegations against him.
He then added that if the investigation does indeed confirm the claims of the women who have come forward, “I think he’d probably end up being prosecuted, too.”
“It takes a lot of courage to come forward, so the presumption is it should be taken seriously,” Biden stated. “And it should be investigated, and that’s what’s underway now.”
“A woman should be presumed to be telling the truth and should not be scapegoated and become victimized by her coming forward. But there should be an investigation to determine whether what she says is true. That’s what’s going on now,” he added.
“The alarming deflection and compliance of the media to allow Joe Biden to negate his own sexual misconduct is predictable but still shocking as a survivor to be so publicly erased,” Reade said during her interview on Fox News.
“The trauma I experienced by Biden was very real. The fact he is calling for another official’s investigation and possible criminal sanctions for similar charges is showing the height of arrogance about never being accountable for his own,” she added.
“Joe Biden got away with sexually harassing and assaulting me in 1993 and other women have also come forward with similar complaints. Joe Biden ascended to the Presidency anyway,” Reade said.
Reade has claimed that when she worked for Biden’s Senate office in 1993, he pushed her against a wall in a Capitol Hill office building, put his hand up her skirt and sexually assaulted her with his fingers.
“You and I were there, Joe Biden,” she said last year during the campaign. “Please step forward and be held accountable. You should not be running on character for the president of the United States.”
Biden has denied Reade’s claim.
“This claim is simply not true, it did not happen,” he said. “Now, my knowledge that it isn’t true does nothing to shake my belief that women have to be able to be heard, and that all the claims be taken seriously.”
Reade has every right to be ticked off. The posture he’s taking toward the accusers of Cuomo when he himself did exactly what he’s doing, is extremely hypocritical. Assume women are telling the truth, eh?
Well, buddy, how about you come clean about Reade and if what she says is true, resign from the White House? Sounds fair to me.
