Recently, President Joe Biden broke his silence on the astounding number of sexual harassment allegations leveled against New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D), revealing in an ABC News interview that Cuomo should resign and possibly prosecuted if the multiple claims are proven by an ongoing investigation.
However, Biden has a past with sexual harassment claims, too, with the most notable and recent allegation coming from accuser Tara Reade. According to Fox News, after Reade watched Biden’s interview, she slammed the president and the media for not taking her claims even remotely as seriously as they are the ones against Cuomo.
Her anger was born out of Biden’s patronizing interview, in which he insisted that “A woman should be presumed to be telling the truth and should not be scapegoated and become victimized by her coming forward.”
Reade held nothing back in her comments on the ongoing controversy, pointing out the obvious play by the media to shield Biden from her bombshell claims while he was in the midst of running in a high-stakes presidential campaign.
“The alarming deflection and compliance of the media to allow Joe Biden to negate his own sexual misconduct is predictable but still shocking as a survivor to be so publicly erased,” Reade told Fox News.
“Joe Biden got away with sexually harassing and assaulting me in 1993 and other women have also come forward with similar complaints,” Reade added. “Joe Biden ascended to the Presidency anyway.”
As of this writing, a staggering eight women — seven of which are former or current staffers — against Cuomo, which happens to be the same number of allegations against Biden. Virtually every high-profile Democrat in New York and in national politics has either come out against the New York governor or publicly issued calls for him to resign.
Reade never had any of that protection or backing from any party or media outlet, but she’s vowed to not give up on her mission to expose the new president for the sexual assault incident she alleges Biden committed against her in 1993.
“There will be a reckoning for Joe Biden one day for the sexual misconduct, the truth will prevail and he will not silence me,” Read said.
