There is perhaps no greater example of Democratic hypocrisy than the story of Joe Biden and Tara Reade.
In the early 1990’s, Tara Reade was working for then Senator Joe Biden. According to Reade, the longtime politician approached and sexually assaulted her in 1993 – a claim she made to her friends and family at the time, and which has been corroborated multiple time by those same witnesses.
Yet, the Democratic Party, as a whole, doesn’t seem interested in hearing about it. They’ve already thrown their weight behind Joe Biden for his 2020 run for the White House, and it’s too late to make a switch without appearing desperate.
More shocking still is the fact that many of the most staunch progressive figures, (most of whom were intimately involved in the shaming of Donald Trump as a potential “sexist”), are telling the world that it doesn’t matter if Joe Biden is guilty of sexual assault – he still needs to be the President come November.
Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) on Monday said she will vote for former Vice President Joe Biden in the upcoming presidential election while insisting that she believes his former Senate staffer Tara Reade’s allegations of sexual assault.
“Believing survivors is consistent with my values,” Omar wrote on social media. “Yes, I endorsed against Biden and I didn’t pick him as our nominee. With that said, in this interview I did on May 6th, we talked about that and quotes aren’t always in context. I will vote for him and help him defeat Trump.”
It is this wild and unforgivable hypocrisy that will almost surely usher in a landslide victory for Donald Trump in a little over 5 months’ time.
