Biden Says If Voters Believe Tara Reade They ‘Probably Shouldn’t Vote for Me’

Presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden is speaking directly to voters after publicly denying the sexual assault allegation made against him.

MSNBC’s Lawrence O’Donnell asked Biden what he would say to women who may have voted for him prior to the allegation but are now hesitant because of the allegation made by Tara Reade, a former staffer while Biden was a senator.

Biden encouraged them to vote their conscience.

“I think they should vote their heart and if they believe Tara Reade, they probably shouldn’t vote for me,” Biden said. “I wouldn’t vote for me if I believed Tara Reade.”

Watch his comments below:

According to Biden, Reade’s story changes “considerably.”

Biden doubled down on his denial of her allegation.

“I promise you it never happened. It should be vetted. She should be thoroughly looked at and whether or not this happened. Look at the story, follow the storyline, and determine if there’s any truth to it,” Biden said.

He added, “And there is no truth to it, I promise you.”

Not only did Biden reiterate his denial of the allegation, but he also said he does not remember Reade at all.

O’Donnell asked Biden if he remembered Reade from when she worked for him as a staffer between 1992 and 1993.

He replied, “Well to be honest with you, I don’t.”

Check out his comments below:

Biden has repeatedly stood by his claim the assault never happened and several of his Democratic colleagues have come out in support of him.

Among his supporters include Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.), Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.), Sen. Cory Booker (D-N.J.), House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.), Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.), Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer (D), and former Georgia gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams.

Tara Reade participated in an interview with Megyn Kelly where she criticized Democrats for the way she has been treated in comparison to how Christine Blasey Ford was treated during Brett Kavanaugh’s case, as IJR previously reported.

  1. My last paycheck was $9500 working 20 hours a week online. My sisters friend has been averaging 15k for months now and she works about 20 hours a week. I can’t believe how easy it was once I tried it out. The potential with this is endless. This is what I do……………… Now60.Com

  2. Well, will wonders never cease. I finally agree about something with a Democrat. I WON’T vote for you Biden because we all know you are as guilty as the rest of you dirty Democrat cronies……”I did not have sex with that woman!” Geez you sick perv, you’re seen all over social media with hands all over women, leering and grabbing. Do you think because you can buy people off that makes them stupid? Oh, right, THAT was stupid on my part to ask that question. As far as pardoning Trump SHOULD you become president, I got to admit, that was a good one. Today wasn’t such a good day, and I needed a good, deep belly laugh. They always make me feel better. WTF do YOU have to pardon TRUMP for! You need to work on opening those squinty eyes of yours and clean up on your own doorstep.

  3. Tara challenged him to a lie detector test. Don’t worry Joe, so many people I know aren’t voting for you. Yes, some I know are (I’m in a blue, blue state) but the number dwindles. I think that’s why people speculate that the Dems will punt you. However, I do believe in innocent until proven guilty. However, you just told a bunch of Dems that believe Tara not to vote for you when they said they would anyway. I bet you lost a few more with your arrogance.

  4. Biden has done so much wrong, I think his selective memory and senility act are convenient. He will run with Michelle, of Hillary, or some other female politician, to give them exposure and close up shop and go home, in November. Now, if the Democraps can stuff the ballot boxes enough and he gets elected, and takes the meaningless oath in January… he will get sick by April, or May and turn over the reins of power to the VP, our first female POTUS. I don’t expect that to happen, but we really didn’t expect a lot of things, these last four years, did we?

  5. Thanks Joe. That’s probably the only advice that you give which I’ll follow.

  6. If a voter #metoo voter believes Tara Reade, and they vote for Biden anyway, after protesting Kavanugh on such flimsy uncorroborated 40 year old recollection. They should be stripped of their voter registration cards.

  7. An intriguing attention-grabbing campaign tactic, to dare women voters not to vote for him. Not to give him the benefit of the doubt, but is it just possible that Biden truly believes the incident never occurred because he honestly doesn’t remember it? It’s often easy enough for a mentally healthy individual person to forget or repress some memories, but perhaps even more likely for some in the early stages of senility. We’ll never know how his mind works (or doesn’t work) these days, but just saying…..

  8. Does that mean Biden is voting for Trump? Or is he like all those “grandstanders” who have not left the country?
