All Tara Reade’s Deniers

The Democrats who attacked Brett Kavanaugh duck and cover for Joe Biden.

Joe Biden held a Virtual Women’s Town Hall on Tuesday, and the minor news was Hillary Clinton’s appearance and endorsement. The real news is what didn’t happen. This was another public forum where Mr. Biden didn’t address, and wasn’t asked about, Tara Reade’s allegation that he sexually assaulted her in 1993.

This week two more women told Business Insider that Ms. Reade told them about the assault when she says then Sen. Biden pinned her against a wall, put his hands under her skirt and digitally penetrated her. Lynda LaCasse, a next-door neighbor and Biden supporter, says Ms. Reade talked about the assault in 1995 or 1996. Lorraine Sanchez, a co-worker from Ms. Reade’s time as a staffer for a California state Senator, says Ms. Reade told her she’d been sexually harassed by her former boss.

There’s also a video of a 1993 phone call to CNN’s “Larry King Live,” which appears to be from Ms. Reade’s mother, asking for advice for her daughter who had “problems” with a “prominent Senator” but didn’t want to go to the press. This evidence joins Ms. Reade’s brother and two anonymous friends who reinforced her story and were cited previously by the New York Times.

None of these proves Ms. Reade’s accusations, but the accounts do make them harder to ignore. And it highlights the troubling double standard between how sexual assault charges against Brett Kavanaugh were treated and how the same people are now treating assault accusations against Mr. Biden.

When Christine Blasey Ford accused Mr. Kavanaugh of sexual assault, he sat for an interview with Fox News’ Martha MacCallum and categorically denied every charge. He endured an FBI investigation and was grilled by the Senate Judiciary Committee.

And Joe Biden? In the thick of the Kavanaugh nomination he said that, when a women alleges sexual assault, the “presumption” should be that she is telling the truth. Mr. Biden hasn’t personally responded to Ms. Reade’s accusation. He’s left the denial to his campaign staff.

Mr. Biden gets away with this because the press lets him. Everybody knows that if Mr. Biden were a Republican every GOP Senator would be asked if he believed the accuser, but that when the accused is a Democrat best not to ask the tough questions. It’s not as if Mr. Biden is inaccessible. The NewsBusters blog reports that since Ms. Reade made her accusations, the former Vice President has been on ABC, NBC, CNN and MSNBC for interviews. Not one of the 77 questions were about Ms. Reade’s charges.

It would also be instructive to ask Democratic women about Ms. Reade, especially those who were most adamant about believing the uncorroborated charges against Mr. Kavanaugh. Of Ms. Blasey Ford’s credibility, Sen. Amy Klobuchar said in the Judiciary Committee that “the fact that she had mentioned this before means a lot.” As for Ms. Reade’s charges, the Senator has picked up a talking point from the Biden campaign: that the New York Times conducted a “thorough investigation” and that’s good enough for her.

Ageist and fat shaming now? 

You're covered with the new emoji . . .

Facebook Introduces Karen Reaction Button

MENLO PARK, CA—Facebook has introduced a new Karen reaction button for Facebook users to use when they moan and whine from the sidelines.

The emoji shows an angry woman with a short hair cut, clearly upset that others are not living up to her lofty standards. While before, you had to go through the trouble of leaving an angry comment of disapproval, now, you can simply click the Karen button so you can judge people from afar.

"Whenever one of your friends posts a photo in which they're not properly social distancing or are breaking lock down, or worse, are sexy women holding guns, we encourage you to use this handy new emoji," said Mark Zuckerberg. "Do your part and react with the Karen button."

The button lets your friends and family know you're angrily judging them for not living in fear and for having a little bit of fun. And, best of all, if a picture receives enough Karen reactions, Facebook will automatically summon a manager to address the complaints.
