If the Tara Reade accusations against Joe Biden have done nothing else, they have exposed Democrats as massive hypocrites.
Two years ago, they tried to ruin Brett Kavanaugh’s life with the #MeToo movement.
Now that Joe Biden has been accused of sexual assault, they could not care less.
Chuck Schumer is the latest Democrat to brush off the allegations.
Schumer calls Biden denial of Tara Reade assault allegation ‘sufficient’
Chuck Schumer said on Tuesday that Joe Biden’s denial of sexual-assault allegations is “sufficient,” indicating that the Senate’s top Democrat plans to stick with the party’s expected standard-bearer in the November presidential election.
The Senate minority leader’s comments continue a pattern of top Democrats standing by the former vice president amid claims from a former Senate staffer, Tara Reade, who alleges that Biden sexually assaulted her in the early 1990s. Biden has repeatedly denied Reade’s claims, and his allies in Congress aren’t wavering in their support.
“Before the #MeToo movement, women were not listened to who were telling what had happened to them. Since #MeToo, women are listened to,” Schumer (D-N.Y.) said in response to a question about whether he believes Reade’s allegations.
“Now I’ve heard Joe Biden’s explanation. I think it’s sufficient,” Schumer continued. “I think he will be a great candidate. I think he will be a great president. And I think he will help us take back the Senate.”

Democrats are just hoping that the press will ignore this so they can quickly move on.
