GOP Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel appeared on ABC News this week and called out Democrats and the media for their hypocrisy on the allegations against Joe Biden.
She noted that the allegations against Brett Kavanaugh were hyped by the same people who are desperately trying to ignore the allegations made against Biden.
News Busters provides a partial transcript:
MARTHA RADDATZ: Well, I know we here at ABC have not ignored and many in the media have not ignored it. We haven’t ignored it. But I want to turn to those accusations.
You put out an ad, an attack ad against Joe Biden, but the President has also been accused of sexual harassments, sexual misconduct, sexual assault by more than a dozen women. And in a radio interview on Thursday, President Trump said while Tara Reade, the accuser, sounds credible, “I would just say to Joe Biden, just go out and fight it.” Adding, “I guess in a way you could say I’m sticking up for him.” Is he sticking up for Joe Biden? And how far will you go with these attack ads?
MCDANIEL: I’m going to take issue with the media ignoring this. It has been appalling the hypocrisy, as to how Brett Kavanagh was treated versus Joe Biden. Brett Kavanaugh, every accuser was put on TV, it was wall-to-wall coverage. They went into his high school yearbook. They said he needed an FBI investigation. Michael Avenatti was on TV accusing him of gang rap, from an accuser who never even met Brett Kavanaugh.
And then you go to Joe Biden, five weeks of silence. 19 interviews without a single question. He won’t let people go in his records in the University of Delaware. They’re calling on the DNC to do the investigation. It from #MeToo, #MeToo, #MeToo to move on, move on, move on in a nanosecond because he’s a Democrat.
And the hypocrisy is appalling and it’s not just from the Democrats, it’s from the media. And I’ll tell you, I think any outlet that conducted those 19 interviews and didn’t ask a single question should be disqualified from conducting any part of a presidential debate.
Watch the video below:
McDaniel is correct.
The media had 19 chances to ask Joe Biden about allegations against him.
Their double standard is appalling, and any outlet who conducted those interviews should be disqualified from hosting a presidential debate. pic.twitter.com/rLge4zR5ZZ
