Isn’t it funny how the mainstream media tried to skip over Biden’s sexual assault encounter?
They were more than happy to destroy an innocent man like Brett Kavanaugh. Meanwhile they’ve excused Biden’s creepy behavior for decades. He even tried to skate by with an apology of sorts- claiming he never realized he was invading the space of hundreds of women.
If we ignore Biden’s many other crimes against America, and focus only on his crimes against women, we’d still have a mountain of encounters worth investigating. But for arguments sake, let’s just stick to Tara Reade.
Oddly, the New York Times refused to print the story. After Harvey Weinstein, you’d think the Times was ready to pounce every predator they dig up dirt on. But apparently, that’s not the case.
Now, they’ve completely skipped over a pretty juicy development.
As Fox News explains:
A 1993 clip from CNN’s “Larry King Live” that resurfaced on Friday appears to show Reade’s late mother alluding to “problems” her daughter faced while working as a staffer for the then-Delaware senator. Reade later told Fox News it was indeed the voice of her mother on the clip. The 27-year-old footage dominated social media for much of the weekend, forcing even the liberal CNN to briefly mention the story it had previously ignored.
The New York Times appears to have not covered the story whatsoever. Various searches for keywords such as “Larry King” and “Tara Reade” on the paper’s website did not return any relevant results as of Monday morning.
Reade’s sexual assault allegations against Biden have been an ongoing issue for the Times. The paper was condemned for taking 19 days to report her claim in the first place. The paper’s media reporter Ben Smith then interviewed executive editor Dean Baquet, who tried to justify the delay.
Let’s just skip the sorry excuses.
All we get from the left is one hypocrisy after another. We don’t even need the excuses anymore. These canned responses are standard issued on the left.
Like Kevin Jackson put it, Biden hammered down his excuse months ago. Dementia. Biden flat doesn’t remember. Or so he claims.
But Baquet put it a different way.
“I thought that what The New York Times could offer and should try to offer was the reporting to help people understand what to make of a fairly serious allegation against a guy who had been a vice president of the United States and was knocking on the door of being his party’s nominee,” Baquet explained. “Look, I get the argument. Just do a short, straightforward news story. But, I’m not sure that doing this sort of straightforward news story would have helped the reader understand. Have all the information he or she needs to think about what to make of this thing.”
In other words, we’re all too stupid to understand that sexual assault is sexual assault. Jeez, I hope the Times doesn’t plan to educate a nation on morality.
When it comes to Reade, her claims are the exact opposite of Christine Bullsh*t-Ford’s. More witnesses stepped forward today.
As we just learned:
Lynda LaCasse, a former next-door neighbor of Reade’s and a self-described supporter of Biden spoke on the record with Rich McHugh of Business Insider about past conversations they had with Reade about the allegations.
“This happened, and I know it did because I remember talking about it,” LaCasse told Business Insider, recalling a conversation with Reade that occurred in either 1995 or 1996.
Another past acquaintance, Lorraine Sanchez, a former colleague, also recalled past conversations with Reade, though she said did not recall Reade referring to Biden by name.
“[Reade said] she had been sexually harassed by her former boss while she was in DC,” Sanchez told the publication, “and as a result of her voicing her concerns to her supervisors, she was let go, fired.”
Biden himself has not addressed the claims from Reade — but his campaign has vehemently denied the allegations.
Of course Biden sits in silence. It’s easier to deny things you refuse to acknowledge. But #MeToo should be about women like Tara Reade. Those who’ve faced true instances of sexual harassment, and worse, sexual assault.
But you can bet Biden will continue to be guarded by the left. He’s their last chance for 2020. It’s a snowball’s chance in hell, but it’s all they’ve got.
