Joe Biden’s Presidential campaign struggled with how to handle Tara Reade’s credible allegations of sexual assault.
Many Democrats wanted him to drop out of the race.
And now Joe Biden admitted one truth about Tara Reade’s allegations that just changed everything.
Joe Biden sat for an hour long interview with Vice Presidential contender failed Georgia gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams on MSNBC’s The Last Word.
During the interview, host Laurence O’Donnell asked Biden about Tara Reade’s credible allegations of sexual assault and how that comported with Biden’s proclaimed slogan of “believe all women.”
Biden then made the gaffe of the campaign when he admitted that if anyone believed Tara Reade they shouldn’t vote for him.
“Well, I think they should vote their heart. If they believe Tara Reade, they probably shouldn’t vote for me. I wouldn’t vote for me if I believe Tara Reade. The fact is that — look at Tara Reade’s story. It changes considerably.
“And so, but I don’t want to question her motive. I don’t want to question anything other than to say the truth matters. This is being vetted. It’s been vetted. They went and people interviewed scores of my employees over my whole career,” Biden told O’Donnell.
A recent Monmouth University poll found a full 20 percent of Democrats believe Reade.
Biden just gave over millions of potential voters a permission slip to stay home in November.
The former Vice President also tried to convince those voters Reade was making stuff up by falsely claiming inappropriate touching was out of character for him.
“This is just totally, thoroughly, completely out of character, and the idea that in a public place in a hallway, I would assault a woman? I mean, it’s — I mean — anyway, I promise you, it never happened. It should be vetted. She should be thoroughly looked at and whether or not these happened, look at the story, follow the story line and determine whether there’s any truth to it. And there is no truth to it. I promise you,” Biden added.
But there are plenty of videos on the internet of Biden creeping around women – and even young girls – rubbing their shoulders, putting his hands all over them and sniffing their hair.
