A former staff assistant to then-Senator Joe Biden claims she was sexually assaulted by the Democrat presidential candidate in 1993.
Tara Reade, the former staffer who said she viewed Biden as a “champion of women’s rights,” made the allegations in an audio interview with podcaster and journalist Katie Harper.
The details were rather graphic and shocking in nature.
Reade explained that the entire exchange was odd. She was sent to deliver a gym bag to Biden when he allegedly, without any exchange of words, simply began kissing her.
“We were alone, and it was the strangest thing. There was no, like, exchange really, he just had me up against the wall,” she recalled. “His hands were on me and underneath my clothes.”
Reade proceeded to describe other more graphic actions Biden allegedly engaged in. We have no desire to enter into those details.
When the assault was over, she claims Biden said, “C’mon man, I heard you liked me.”

Problem For Joe?
Reade claims that after the assault, Biden dismissed her rather angrily saying, “You’re nothing to me!”
In the age of Harvey Weinstein, Bill Cosby, and the ‘Me Too’ movement, it’ll be interesting to see if these allegations – despite their age – are covered with any seriousness in the mainstream media.
Thus far it seems, they are willing to ignore the story. Had this been an accusation against President Trump, it would be covered in a 24/7 news cycle.
Joe Biden has been accused of sexual assault by Tara Reade.
Her account is extremely graphic.
Everyone needs to read this.
Are you lying Joe, or is she at fault?https://t.co/trHiE6f6OG

Hillary on Biden’s Past Accusers: ‘Get Over It’
Since Biden announced his candidacy for president, several women have accused him of either inappropriate or unwanted touching, making them feel uncomfortable.
The wave of accusers began with former Nevada Assemblywoman Lucy Flores who alleged Biden inappropriately kissed her and smelled her hair.
Some of the uncomfortable interactions involving the former Vice President, captured in images over the last several years, have involved young people.
Hillary Clinton, another so-called champion of women, was asked about the numerous claims against Biden and said they paled in comparison to the need to get Donald Trump out of the White House.
“This man who’s there in the Oval Office right now poses a clear and present danger to the future of the United States,” Clinton said previously. “So get over it.”

Reade accused Biden of inappropriate touching similar to Flores’ allegations in 2019, but went silent according to The Intercept because of “accusations that she was doing the bidding of Russian President Vladimir Putin.”
Imagine that. ‘Believe all women’ is cast aside when that woman might be detrimental to the campaign of Trump’s opponent.
