Today’s Campaign Update (Because the Campaign Never Ends)
“Joe Biden isn’t sheltering in place in his basement bunker because of the pandemic, he’s hiding from Tara Reade.” – Don Trump, Jr. tweeted that particular bit of truth Friday night after a new video and accompanying media reports had surfaced providing additional contemporaneous substantiation for the allegation by Tara Reade, a staffer for then-Senator Joe Biden in the early 1990s, that China Joe not only sexually harassed her repeatedly, but at one point also penetrated her with one of his long, spindly fingers.
Corrupt media outlets like the Washington Post and the New York Times have done their best to provide cover for Biden – the story has, a full month after Reade resurfaced with her allegations, still not appeared in any form on CNN’s air or website – but the thing just keeps gaining legs regardless. On Friday evening, a video clip surfaced – first reported by The Intercept – of Read’s mother calling in to a 1993 episode of CNN’s own Larry King Show to complain about Biden’s horrific treatment of her daughter and the fact that she was fired for attempting to report the matter.
Here’s the clip:
#BREAKING: HERE is the video from August 11,1993's 'Larry King Live' described by @TheIntercept (and Tara Reade) as allegedly featuring her mother calling in and alluding to Reade's sexual assault claims against @JoeBiden (blog here by @ScottJW) https://t.co/fCgEqBnX7n pic.twitter.com/V5FGHskv56

Interestingly, the very leftwing Politico has taken up reporting on the matter in recent weeks, which will no doubt mean its executives will be taken off the invite list for future dinner parties at Jeff Zucker’s home. Here is how Politico summarized the call in its report this morning:
As first reported by the Intercept, an unnamed woman from San Luis Obispo, California, called into King’s show and said, “I’m wondering what a staffer would do besides go to the press in Washington? My daughter has just left there, after working for a prominent senator, and could not get through with her problems at all, and the only thing she could have done was go to the press, and she chose not to do it out of respect for him.”
Reade confirmed to POLITICO it was her mother’s voice.
King asked the woman, “She had a story to tell but, out of respect for the person she worked for, she didn’t tell it?”
The caller replied, “That’s true.”
In March, Reade accused Biden of digitally penetrating her in 1993 without her consent. Last year, she told reporters that Biden inappropriately touched her at the time, including on her neck and shoulder, but did not talk about an alleged assault.
As I wrote last month, the Wuhan Virus pandemic has been a stroke of great good fortune for China Joe. It has enabled his handlers to maintain their strategy of “hidin’ Biden,” keeping the obviously impaired candidate cooped up in his basement and away from any uncontrolled interactions with the public or the press. Biden’s shut-in status has also given the Democrat operatives at all the major media outlets the rationale they love to have to basically ignore any inconvenient news stories related to the creepy presumptive Democrat nominee on the excuse that there is too much bigger news to deal with.
Even with those excuses, though, the liberals at Politico have chosen to file multiple reports on this story and continue to pursue it. On Thursday, for example, Politico published a report detailing the rank hypocrisy on the matter displayed by Alyssa Milano and other leaders of the #MeToo movement. Turns out that we must “believe all women” unless the woman in question is leveling a very believable allegation at a prominent Democrat. But of course, that has been a consistent feature of the “women’s movement” for half a century now.
This continuing focus on the story is commendable because it means that Politico’s reporters are destined to become social outcasts among their utterly corrupt and worthless peer group so long as the publication continues to focus scrutiny on the nation’s Unfrozen Caveman Senator. It’s a breach of corrupt media protocol that exposes the other leftist outlets as the rank hypocrites and frauds they truly are.
So, kudos are due to Ms. Reade for having the courage to do everything she can to warn America about the real Joe Biden, and to the editors and reporters at Politico for defying peer pressure to continue reporting on the story.
That is all.
