Tara Reade, who has accused Joe Biden of sexual assault, said Saturday that it is “shocking” that the mainstream media has not asked the presumptive 2020 Democratic nominee about the allegations over a month and nearly a dozen Biden interviews since she went public with her claims.
Reade told Fox News:
“I think it’s shocking that this much time has passed and that he is an actual nominee for president and they’re not asking the questions. He’s been on ‘Anderson Cooper’ at least twice where he was not asked.
I guess my question is, if this were Donald Trump, would they treat it the same way? If this were Brett Kavanaugh, did they treat it the same way? In other words, it’s politics and political agenda playing a role in objective reporting and asking the question. . . .
There are two things happening at once. [Biden] is not making himself accessible to be asked the question. And when he does make himself accessible, they are not asking, those anchors. And so that tells there may be a political agenda behind that and that’s gross … I’m a survivor and I would like the question asked.”
Reade revealed that she used to be a fan of Anderson Cooper, saying, “I really would look to him for answers and I would never do that again.”
🔦 On Friday, a 1993 clip of “Larry King Live” resurfaced in which the mother of Tara Reade appears to affirm her sexual assault allegations against Biden.
Reade’s claim against Biden:
“He greeted me, he remembered my name, and then we were alone. It was the strangest thing. There was no like, exchange really. He just had me up against the wall.”
Reade said that she was wearing “a business skirt,” but “wasn’t wearing stockings—it was a hot day.”
She continued: “His hands were on me and underneath my clothes, and he went down my skirt and then up inside it and he penetrated me with his fingers and he was kissing me at the same time and he was saying some things to me.”
Reade claimed Biden first asked if she wanted “to go somewhere else.”
“I pulled away, he got finished doing what he was doing. He said: ‘Come on, man. I heard you liked me.'”
