While they’re not ready to abandon ship yet, we’ve seen some of the rats start jumping into the water—so it may not be too long before we see a mass exodus of disgruntled Biden supporters.
But regardless of when that exodus comes, it may be too little too late. The more information revealed about Tara Reade’s case, the worse it is for the establishment that backed Biden instead of calling for an investigation.
Think about all the damage that the party has done to the women’s rights movement by ignoring this one allegation. They went from telling everyone to “believe all women” to only believing SOME women as long as they’re not accusing Democrats. It’s a shame because the woman they’re choosing not to believe has corroborators and other evidence backing up her claim.
But that’s a different discussion…
What we’re talking about is how the Dems and their allies are starting to realize that Joe Biden may not be the best choice for their November run at the presidency—and the Tara Reade sexual assault allegations have gone a long way towards bringing them to that conclusion, kicking and screaming all the way.
Cracks In The Façade
It may simply be that Biden kept quiet about these charges for too long. After all, it took him about a MONTH to address them, so one has to wonder why he waited so long to do so.
Was he in crisis mode? Were he and his advisors trying to get their stories straight?
And when he did finally come forward with a statement, what did he say?
“It was 27 years ago. The fact is that I don’t remember. I don’t remember any complaint ever having been made.”
While it was something, it wasn’t enough to get things moving in his favor again. This story is sticking around, and it’s sticking around for a reason: there is evidence that this happened and that’s hard to sweep under the rug.
That’s why we’re starting to see SOME of the Dems come out in support of Reade. They can see the writing on the wall, and they don’t want to be caught on the wrong side of this if what she says is proven to be true.
Fellow Democrat Senator Ed Markey was one of the first to come out against Biden. “We need an investigation,” Markey said, in order to have the “independence that will then ensure that the facts are established.”
All it takes is for one person to start the ball rolling and the rest will jump on the bandwagon…
Take fellow Democrat Senator Jeff Merkley of Oregon, for example, who agreed that there should be an investigation, saying “I think it’s important to have appropriate independent scrutiny brought to bear.”
These are the cracks that are showing in Joe’s hopes for a run in November.
The Squad Wants Justice – Not Old, Dirty, White Men
Even worse, infamous “Squad” is now jumping on the bandwagon.
First, AOC said that not investigating Reade’s accusation is “the exact opposite of integrity.” Then, often-forgotten Squad member Ayanna Pressley said that the DNC has to have “an uncomfortable conversation” about Biden.
And it’s very true…
They do. This may be the proverbial hole in the dike that the party doesn’t need.
However, Pressley didn’t end her statement there.
“I reject the false choice that my party and our nominee can’t address the allegations at hand and defeat the occupant of the White House. I’m here to ask the Biden campaign and the nominee to give a response that models the empathy … that this conversation demands. We are required to raise our hands and our voices. I, for one, will be listening.”
So, is this the beginning of the end for Creepy Joe?
It sure seems like it could be!
Either way, we just hope that Reade gets the chance to face her alleged attacker as Blasey-Ford did during the Kavanaugh hearings.
We’re not asking for better treatment, just the same.
And the fact that it may take down Biden in the process is just gravy on top of the potatoes.
