Now that all other major candidates are out of the race for the Democratic Party nomination for president, Vice President Joe Biden is set to go head to head with Donald Trump. Like the sitting president, Joe Biden faces accusations from women who accuse him of touching or kissing them inappropriately throughout his career. Because Biden has been serving in the government for decades and had a long political career with a lot of experience as a Senator before rising to take the position of Vice President, there are a lot of people looking to knock him down a peg now that he is going toe to toe with the sitting president in the 2020 election.
None of the women who now accuse Joe Biden of sexual assault ever did so in the past, one woman, came forward last month on The Katie Halper Show podcast to accuse the former vice president of digitally penetrating her in 1993 when she had not offered her consent to the action first. Biden’s accuser’s name is Tara Reade. During the podcast taping, Reade described how she worked as a staff assistant to Biden at the time of the alleged assault while he was serving in the United States Senate.
The New York Times published their findings on the sexual assault allegations. Last year, Reade first came forward and said that Biden made her “uncomfortable” because he does too much touching when communicating with people. It was all over the news prior to Trump’s impeachment.
A year ago, Reade accused Biden of putting “his hand on my shoulder and ran his finger up my neck.” Now she alleges that he sexually assaulted her.
During the March 2020 podcast interview, Reade told Halper that Biden was “handsy with a lot of people” and that his treatment of her made her feel like “an inanimate object.”
One time Biden instructed Reade to hand him his gym bag.
“The gym bag, I don’t know where it went,” she said. “I handed it to him. It was gone and then his hands were on me and underneath my clothes. And then he went down my skirt, but then up inside it and he penetrated me with his fingers. And he was kissing me at the same time, and he was saying something to me.”
She remembered him saying, “Do you want to go somewhere else?”
When she pulled away from the Senator, he said, “Come on, man, I heard you liked me.” Before he left, he told her, “You’re okay. You’re fine.”
During the New York Times’ thorough investigation into Biden’s past, its best reporters found “no pattern of sexual misconduct by Biden and that no other allegation of sexual assault came up during reporting.”
Unlike other predators, Biden does not seem to be the type to do it. Is Reade telling the whole truth? Many other sexual predators in the news have multiple victims and numerous rape and sexual misconduct allegations against them.
Do you think Biden gets too friendly with people? Or is he a sex predator?
