Ilhan Omar: I Believe Tara Reade, But I’m Still Voting For Biden
Representative Ilhan Omar said that even though she believes the accusations of Tara Reade, she is still going to vote for Joe Biden for President.
Omar: “I Do Believe [Her]”
Tara Reade has accused former Vice President Joe Biden of sexually assaulting her back in the 1990s when he was the Senator for Delaware. Unlike when President Donald Trump and Justice Brett Kavanaugh were accused, many on the left have decided to not #BelieveAllWomen this time around, and have dismissed her claims. This was to be expected, as the left often claim any accusations of wrongdoing by people on “their side” are false, because leftists are nice people!
However, some on the Democrat side of the argument have seemed to go one step further than this, claiming that they believe the allegations put forward by Reade are true, but that they simply do not care. One of them is Representative Ilhan Omar of “The Squad.”
In an interview with the British newspaper, The Times, Omar said that she does believe Reade’s allegations.
“Justice can be delayed, but should never be denied,” she said, and went on to argue that if it were her choice, Biden would not be the Democrat nominee. This, of course, is an acceptable stance to take, but then what turns it hypocritical is that she will still be voting for him, no matter what.
How Can You Vote For Someone You Think Is A Rapist?!
“Believing survivors is consistent with my values,” Omar tweeted. “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.”

How on earth can anyone admit that they will be voting for someone they believe is a molestor/rapist?! Those on the left who are completely denying the allegations are at least consistent – they simply don’t believe Biden is capable of this. President Trump once joked that he could shoot someone and people would still vote for him, but it seems that when it comes to serious criminal allegations, Biden actually does have that level of support.
