Joe Biden Addresses Tara Reade Allegations In Awkward Appearance On Morning Joe (VIDEO)

Joe Biden decided to finally address the sexual assault allegations made by his former staffer Tara Reade in an interview on MSNBC’s Morning Joe program.

Many people assumed that it would be a softball interview, given that the questions were being asked by Mika Brzezinski, but she went after Biden pretty hard.

MSNBC host Mika Brzezinski was lauded on social media for her questioning of former Vice President Joe Biden about an allegation that he sexually assaulted a Senate aide in 1993.

Brzezinski questioned Biden for approximately 18 minutes on Friday, asking the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee if he assaulted former staffer Tara Reade, if he would give permission to the University of Delaware to release relevant records, and if he was guilty of hypocrisy given his statements during Justice Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation hearings.

“Did you sexually assault Tara Reade?” Brzezinski began the interview. “You were unequivocal, Mr. Vice President, back in 2018 during the Kavanaugh controversy and hearings. You said that women should be believed,” Brzezinski later pointed out, referencing Biden’s comments that allegations of sexual assault should be presumed as true.

“To use your words, should we not start off with the presumption that the essence of what she’s talking about is real? She says you sexually assaulted her.”

MSNBC is a friendly media environment for Democrats and Joe still had a hard time.
