The Mid-Day Campaign Update
How completely dishonest is Nancy Pelosi? – Today, she said she was “satisfied” with the way Joe Biden has responded to the Tara Reade sexual assault allegations against him.
To be clear, Joe Biden has yet to say a single word about the Tara Reade sexual assault allegations against him.
Your demented, despicable, disgusting, disgraceful, depraved Democrat Party in action.
Oh, but it gets better. Thursday morning, #FireChrisHayes spent hours trending on Twitter. Shockingly, it wasn’t trending due to outraged Trump fans going after the corrupt MSNBC host. No, no, no.
It was trending because Hayes missed the Media Matters/DNC talking points memo that has told every corrupt media outlet for 42 days now to completely ignore the Tara Reade story. That’s not just advice or a suggestion, mind you: That item on the official talking points memo literally says “Thou Shalt NOT Mention the Tara Reade Story” verbatim. It’s like a commandment for atheist Democrats or something.
Anyway, Hayes obviously missed the memo, and this clip was the result:

Thus was MSNBC’s wall of silence on the Tara Reade story broken. Loyal MSNBC viewers who have spent the last 3 years lapping up Rachel Maddow’s various Russia Collusion conspiracy theories immediately flew into a veritable Twitter frenzy, making Mr. Hayes persona non grata in their book unless and until he either takes it all back or invents a Russia Collusion conspiracy theory of his own. Given that he has already done that on numerous occasions, it is certainly not beyond the realm of possibility.
This media-constructed vow of omerta on this accusation would be hilarious if it weren’t such a serious matter to Ms. Reade. Her story is extremely credible in the context of the very criteria set up by the whole #MeToo movement: She has never varied from the details, she filed a formal complaint at the time it took place, and numerous friends and family members have come forward to confirm that she told them about the incident over the years.
By contrast, the allegations made by Christine Blasey Ford against Justice Kavanaugh had none of these supporting elements. NOT ONE. Yet, every corrupt media outlet in America gave them non-stop coverage not for hours or days, but for WEEKS.
Now, put yourself in Creepy Joe Biden’s shoes for a moment. If you were innocent of what Ms. Reade alleges, wouldn’t you have immediately jumped in front of the nearest TV camera to deny it in the most vigorous terms, filled with moral outrage? Would you have even considered sitting silent on the matter and refusing to do any interviews unless the interviewer promised not to raise the question for 42 long days while the accusation continued to sit out there unaddressed?
Because that’s what Biden has done. Not for a day, or for a week, but for 42 DAYS since Reade first raised the accusation. For those keeping count at home 42 days is the same as 6 weeks. A full month and a half since this awful man was accused of one the most awful things any man can be accused of, and he just sits there silent on the matter.
There are two very believable possible reasons for this silence. Either Biden’s silence is the silence of a guilty man, or it is the silence of an elderly, clearly impaired and rapidly declining man who honestly has no memory of who Tara Reade is or what she is talking about.
I’d put my money on the latter. Biden honestly cannot say that he did or did not do what Ms. Reade alleges he did for the simple fact that he has no memory of it either way. Hell, it became clearly obvious on the campaign trail that he barely remembers what he did this morning, and often doesn’t even know what state he happens to be in at any given time. Expecting him to confirm or deny something that took place 27 years ago is just asking too much.
Nevertheless, this is the guy your Democrat friends want you to believe is the best pick to be your next President. Given that, maybe you should be more careful in choosing your friends.
That is all.
