Biden opinions are predictably partisan

This essay trashes Tara Reade:
The social media world has spent the last month obsessed with the Tara Reade sexual assault allegation. ...

Tara Reade first gained prominence in April 2019, when she was one of several women to accuse Joe Biden of inappropriate touching. ... After she spoke up in April 2019 about feeling objectified in Biden’s office, she was attacked on social media and called a “Russian asset.” She felt like Biden was behind the attacks.
Okay, but these same criticisms apply to various other MeToo accusers, and Biden is on the record as saying that they should be believed.

Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer says that Joe Biden’s denial of Tara Reade’s sexual assault allegation is “sufficient.”

Schumer, who just happened to be a fierce defender of the #MeToo Movement during the confirmation hearings for Justice Brett Kavanaugh, commented on the allegation during a press conference on Tuesday.

Reade claims that Biden penetrated her with his fingers while she was working in his senate office in 1993.

“I’ve heard Joe Biden’s explanation. I think it’s sufficient. I think he will be a great candidate. I think he will be a great President and I think he’ll help us take back the Senate,” Schumer told reporters.
So this is all just partisan politics. Everyone knew that Anita Hill was lying, that Christina Ford was lying, and that Ronan Farrow (whose real name is Satchel Allen) is lying. Nobody thinks women can reliably tell these stories.

Biden is a creep, and a senile old fool who is not competent to be President. That is why Barack Obama picked him for VP in 2008, and he is worse now. This Tara Reade stuff is just an excuse to take him out.
