Joe Biden admitted one thing about Tara Reade’s allegations that left Americans stunned
Joe Biden cannot escape Tara Reade’s credible allegations of sexual assault.
Every time Biden does an interview, he is asked about Reade’s allegation that Biden sexually assaulted her in 1993.
Now Joe Biden admitted one thing about Tara Reade’s allegations that left Americans stunned.
Joe Biden sat for a virtual town hall with Yahoo News National Politics Reporter Brittany Shepherd.
Shepherd asked Biden if the former Vice President watched Reade’s interview with former Fox News host Megyn Kelly.
Biden then rambled on about how he didn’t really mean “believe all women” when he said “believe all women” after Christine Blasey Ford came forward with her false allegations against Brett Kavanaugh.
“Look, here’s the deal, every woman has a right to be heard. Every woman should be able to come forward. Every woman should be presumed that they were telling the truth. And then it should be investigated by serious reporters like you and others to determine what the truth is,” Biden began.
But then admitted the crux of the matter with Reade’s allegations – namely that they are credible and a lot of people believe her.
“And the truth is, this never, ever happened. It never, ever happened. And what I’m reading now online and what I’m seeing in the national press, apparently, there’s a lot of other people who are wondering whether or not it happened,” Biden added.
A CAPS-Harris poll found 55 percent of voters believe Tara Reade.
In a separate poll, Morning Consult found 26 percent of Democrats wanted a new nominee after watching Biden deny Reade’s allegations.
Reade’s allegations are a problem for Biden.
And Americans were stunned to see Biden admit as much.
