Gretchen Whitmer Dismisses Tara Reade’s Allegations Against Biden After “Believing” Christine Blasey Ford
Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer glossed over Tara Reade’s allegations of sexual assault against Democratic Presidential candidate Joe Biden during an interview with CNN’s Jake Tapper on Sunday, dismissing the allegations at Biden’s denial alone. Whitmer had previously accepted Christine Blasey Ford’s allegations of Brett Kavanaugh sexually assaulting her, a standard she declined to apply to Reade.
Tapper, who occasionally deviates from CNN’s strict obedience and promotion of the Democratic Party, pointed out that Reade’s allegation has demonstrably more corroboration than Ford’s did. This doesn’t mean that Reade’s allegation is true, but it does go to show the partisan hypocrisy of the Democratic Party and Whitmer; declining to recognize a sexual assault claim against a member of their party while rushing to judgement on an allegation against a conservative judge.
Watch Tapper’s painful interview with Whitmer here:
Whitmer declined to recognize a “pattern that goes into this,” ignoring the numerous complaints of invasive personal behavior against Biden by several women and girls.
CNN’s Tapper pointed out what appeared to be Whitmer’s blatant double standard- accepting Ford’s allegation as truthful and merely dismissing Reade’s allegation arbitrarily. Several associates of Reade, a former Senate staffer, have come forward and described hearing of her account of events at the time of the alleged incident in 1993.
I believe Dr. Ford

Even leading leftists and progressives have recognized the hardcore hypocrisy of the establishment Democratic Party when it comes to the Biden allegations. Actress Rose McGowan(an early promoter of the #MeToo movement) and journalist Glenn Greenwald have pointed out the cynicism of the Left.
Excellent job here by @jaketapper in seeking an explanation for why Democratic politicians decided to believe Christine Blasey Ford but not Tara Reade. He received nothing other than indignation in return because there’s no cogent answer to provide: https://t.co/FfmRwfygKr
