What happened to "believe all women?"
Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer has announced that he believes Joe Biden!
Specifically, Schumer said, "I have heard Joe Biden's explanation. I think it's sufficient. I think he will be a great candidate. I think he will be a great president."
Tara Reade, a former Senate staffer, accused Joe Biden of sexually assaulting her in a Senate hallway in 1993.
Her mother called into Larry King in 1993 to warn that something had happened with Biden.
Reade has also filed an official report with the DC police.
Yet as of this writing, no Senate Democrat has said they will abandon support for Joe Biden because of Tara Reade's accusations.
Compare this to Justice Brett Kavanaugh.
Christine Blasey Ford's accusations were far less substantive and believable than Reade's, yet the media gave her breathless wall-to-wall coverage.
See Schumer's sadly unsurprising statement below:
These same Democrats who believe Joe Biden all believed Christine Blasey Ford.
This is partisan politics at its finest.
The difference, however, is that Tara Reade is a much more credible accuser than Blasey Ford.
The Larry King video from the 90s, for example, proves that Reade has been consistent about her story -- and publicly! -- for decades.
Compare that to Blasey Ford, who appeared out of no where.
Furthermore, Reade was able to provide specifics, whereas Blasey Ford was unable to recount a date, time, or even a place.
Yet, Schumer claims that Biden's explanation is "sufficient," according to the Washington Examiner:
Sen. Chuck Schumer said he accepts Joe Biden’s response to former aide Tara Reade’s accusation that he sexually assaulted her in a Senate hallway in 1993.
“I have heard Joe Biden’s explanation, and I think it’s sufficient,” Schumer, a New York Democrat, told reporters Tuesday.
No Senate Democrat has said they will abandon support of Biden as a result of Reade’s accusation.
Biden has said the incident never happened.
Senate Democrats voted unanimously against the confirmation of Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh after Christine Blasey Ford accused him of jumping on top of her and sexually assaulting her at a party when the two were in high school.
For the record, Schumer believed Blasey Ford and not Kavanaugh.
The media has hardly covered the Tara Reade accusations in comparison to Christine Blasey Ford's accusations.
Within a week, virtually everyone in America knew about the charges.
However, as of right now, new polling from The Hill shows that only 77 percent of American adults are aware of a sexual assault claim against Joe Biden.
According to The Hill:
A vast majority of voters are now familiar with the sexual assault allegations against Joe Biden made by a former Senate staffer named Tara Reade, according to a new Hill-HarrisX poll.
Biden, who is expected to be the Democratic presidential nominee, has denied the allegations, which Reid claims occurred during a 1993 incident.
The May 6 survey found that 77 percent of registered voters have heard of the allegations while 23 percent have not.
Among those who have heard of the allegations, 61 percent say they are following the news closely, while 39 percent said they are not following it closely.
The survey found men who have heard of the allegations were 19 percentage points more likely to say they are following the story closely than women who said they are familiar with the allegations.
With Democrat leaders circling the wagons around Biden, it's no wonder that there are still many Americans who are not familiar with the legitimate accusations against Biden.
When the American people find out, will they believe Tara Reade?
Or will they agree with Chuck Schumer and claim that Biden's explanation is "sufficient?"
