People have noticed that it’s a little bit hypocritical for Nancy Pelosi to give Joe Biden a pass on sexual assault allegations after Democrats went after Judge Brett Kavanaugh so viciously.
A journalist asked Nancy Pelosi about it this week and she did not want to hear it.
FOX News reports:
Pelosi snaps at reporter over Biden allegation, doubles down on support: ‘I don’t need a lecture’
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., doubled down on her support for Joe Biden on Thursday in the face of a sexual assault allegation against him and had a contentious response to a reporter who asked whether she was treating Biden differently than Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh.
During her Capitol press conference, the first question to the speaker was about Biden, but Pelosi shut down the reporter, saying she first wanted to address the topic on hand — expanding broadband access as part of the broader coronavirus stimulus measures.
At the end of the press conference, after Pelosi has spoken thoroughly about her legislative priorities, the reporter brought up the sexual assault allegation from Tara Reade against the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee. The Washington Examiner’s Kerry Picket asked whether Democrats had a different “standard” for Biden than for Kavanaugh, for whom Democrats were demanding an FBI investigation over an alleged assault when he was a teenager.
“I respect your question,” Pelosi told the reporter. “I don’t need a lecture or a speech.”

Does Pelosi not understand why people are asking this question?
It’s ironic how Nancy Pelosi is calling for due process with Joe Biden.
I think we should give Joe Biden the same due process they gave Brett Kavanaugh.

What’s so hard to get about that?
