      @Dirty Dubliner I wouldn’t count Biden as president yet, it’s interesting how you feel about him but if only 20% of Democrats vote in the coming election trump could get in again. That would be hilarious having a literal clown as president again.

    • @Sean Steele umm biden is 4 years older than trump.

      @casta Two different stories,you need to investigate each separately.They are not the same story

      Automatic belief is not how justice works.As a claimed Sanders cult member you should understand that

      You lot are no different than Trumps cult(Unless your really just a Trump troll sowing division?).Even Bernie,the amazing human he is,backs Biden.i suspect you may well really be a MAGA.You sure act like your in a cult with that chant

      Bernie is in his 80`s.He will be dead some day,what will you do then? Never vote again?

      Bernie was def. the best candidate,ii agree 100%,but i am not a baby man crying because he lost,and i trust what he said.Trump is the greatest danger and must be defeated.If you are so certain about his judgment ,why do you not support who he does?

      If you really are a Sander supporter all i can say is welcome to another 4 years of MAGA hate rallies

      If your not MAGA,stop acting like MAGA

      @Stop Faking If you think those pics are acceptable,and add to that the sexual way he talks about his own daughter,and never gives Tiffany a 2nd notice,i assume you talk about your daughter/niece/grand daughters the same way?

      You even allow other men to call her a piece of meat,and agree with that and add your fave parts of her body to the conversation?

      These pics are not in a vacuum,they exist within the context of Trumps behaviour,sexual predator self admitted and bragged about,and his statements Ie about dating his own daughter.There are too many of these incestual pedo statements by him

      When my grand daughter was about 11,had no idea who trump was or about politics.When she seen the pics she said”Who is that old man that girl is with?”

      i said it is her dad

      The shocked look and disgust on her face as she said”EWWWW that`s just wrong”

      Congratz you are less aware than an 11 year old.Bidens pics and behaviour are wrong,as are Trumps

      i can admit that,you cannot because you are in a cult,and by thinking those pics and his words and behaviours towards his own daughter are normal,you are disgusting

      i hope you never have a daughter or a niece or a grand daughter

      If you touch your daughter like that and talk about her like that,you are disgusting and need to be in jail,and extreme therapy and on strong meds

      If you don`t do those things,answer me why you don`t?

      i bet you cannot answer that question

    “Believe all women, except my accuser” – Joe Biden

    • lordlossize GG | May 5, 2020 at 4:02 PM | Reply

      @Sebelbub so if everyone who said “believe all women” get accused by women, then naturally the “believe all women” motto would die out because then it would be replaced by “believe facts, and innocent until proven guilty”, right? so again, youre just proving that “believe all women” is a bad stance to take because what if youre accused by a woman? what if a woman accuses another woman? what if a man accuses a woman of sexual assault, is it believe all women that she DIDNT do it?

      my point is you and i are literally saying the exact same thing just going about it different ways: im saying that a person who expects something to happen to others but doesnt want it to happen to him shouldnt be telling others that the thing should happen, and youre saying that the guy who says the thing should happen is obviously going to change his mind when it happens to him. we are literally both saying that “believe all women” is something that shouldnt be said because it leads to these exact same situations; hypocrisy and double standards. joe biden is literally the example of “do as i say, not as i do” or “rule for thee, not for me” in this situation.

    • @lordlossize GG I’m not making a generalized argument FOR or AGAINST ‘believe all women’. I’m saying it’s futile to ask Biden to endorse this sentiment.

      Let’s say there is a court room packed for some court hearing in regards to a case involving lets say theft. Everyone in the court room would agree with the sentiment “Innocent until proven guilty”, even the person accusing another person of theft would generally agree to this sentiment.
      But in this specific case that person is the one accusing another person of stealing. It would be absolutely stupid of anyone to approach this person with the argument:
      “You’re on record stating that you agree with the sentiment yet here you are insisting that this man is guilty even tho the court hasn’t proven that yet.”
      That’s a logical dead end or not? I’m not really saying he is changing his mind. Surely the one person who is allowed to go against this sentiment is the one Accusing.

      And in the case of this it’s the same just in reverse. The one person you can not expect to share this sentiment is the accused since they are the ones defending themselves against a (wrongful or not) claim, even if that person usually agrees to the sentiment. And that’s not hypocrisy or changing your mind, it’s stating your side of the story which either is “Yes I did it” or “No she is lying”. And I think that logic holds true whether you’re for or against “believe women”.
      I get the argument you’re making but that’s a whole different beast and I agree. But I’m really just commentating on the butt load of people calling him a hypocrite when really he isn’t.

    • ctyragdoll | May 5, 2020 at 6:09 PM | Reply

      @Sebelbub Then maybe, just maybe, they shouldn’t have made such a stupid statement as ‘believe all women” to begin with. For God’s sake, even women don’t believe all women, and they probably believe them less than men do.

    • @Dean Webster And my response to Hillary Clinton is “What difference did Dr. Blassey Ford’s allegations against Justice Kavenaugh make AT THIS POINT?” We had to endure a 3-ring circus because of her allegations from much further in the past. And Joe Biden never said during the Kavenaugh debacle a woman’s allegations should be investigated and only the truth matters. It was all “hang’em high” for Justice Kavenaugh.

    • John Rabson Jr | May 6, 2020 at 1:43 AM | Reply

      treecatt And what difference do these accusations against Biden make at this point?

      Trump: accused by 25; still made President.
      Kavanaugh: accused by one or two; still made Supreme Court justice.
      Biden: accuser by one or two; …….

    • john walker | May 6, 2020 at 9:03 PM | Reply

      John Rabson Jr The difference is my friend, Democrats actually commit the crimes they are accused of and most of the time the accusations against Republicans are not founded in truth or logic. Blasely Fords story had more holes then Swiss cheese. Not to mention that the accusations against Republicans are usually also brought forward by some progressive liberal Democrat with ties to some deep-pocket, deep-state handler. 😢😢😢🇺🇸 P.S. Trumps still your president.

  8. Joe, we choose Truth over Facts.. so forget YOUR facts.

    • @– there are plenty of videos on YouTube in which he made statements which have come out as false (stories about war, inprisonation in Afrika, his political records etc.). Then his behaviour with women in general and even little girls – whatch the photos and videos. He knows no limits! Corruption with his son in Ukraine and China – bragging about it at the COFR. The episode of Larry King in which most probably Tara Reade’s mother has called to talk about the incident..

      All of that AND the interview at Morning Joe gives just on picture. He’s guilty and I hipe that this will be proven, he does not win the presidency and goes to jail with his crack addicted son!

    • @– and don’t forget his rascist and pedophile comments (poor kids compared to white kids | kids junping on his lap).. the last one would probably answer your question 1:1

    • @_noname his mother called in and didn’t refer to any sexual assault, by the way.

    “Joe Biden is Joe Biden” – Nancy Pelosi

  10. “I don’t know why, after 27 years…” is that the same “I don’t know why…” after the 40 years that Dr. Ford brought allegations against Kavanaugh? By the way, Ms. Reade did NOT wait 27 years – she told many what happened right after the fact, including her mom as is pretty clearly evidenced. Also, as has been documented, the process of a formal complaint is arduous and there’s a good chance Ms. Reade didn’t go that far. So Biden, why not do a search on Tara Reade in the archives? We don’t want or need your interviews, policy statements, tax returns, etc. We just want to do a search for Tara Reade’s name. Why is that out of the question? Why do you have such a long record of lies? Why do you act so inappropriately with other women…and girls?

    • gracie allan | May 8, 2020 at 9:10 PM | Reply

      And apparently there is more documentation in her divorce papers from 1996. This is not going away

    • The fact she didn’t go to Capitol police or whatever right after the alleged incident is a pretty big strike against her. Thanks to that, she was able to avoid police and the legal system early on, she can now point to much looser “facts” much later on, and she can get maximum believability in the court of public opinion, which is where it really counts. It’s actually really convenient. IMO her Megyn Kelly interview was believable. So was Biden, actually. The likelihood that she’s an actress, though, goes against her, too.

      Biden doesn’t have to open up his Delaware papers as it’s so unlikely anything is in there and the danger of manipulative leaking might be very real. Wherever she allegedly filed the complaint, the only copy would never have ended up in his Delaware papers.

      @jakobjonsson The feminist standard is plainly declared, women don’t lie. Her word is good enough, in fact consent can be revoked at any time, including years later. This is backed by feminist scsholars and legislation, its what led to the title 9 kangaroo courts in universities. To even question a woman is to reassault her all over again, this exactly what they have said, and this is what democrats must believe.

    If he was clean he’d just come out and say, “Sure, search the records. I don’t care, there’s nothing to hide.” Instead he just keeps saying, “Why search them? There’s nothing there.”

      Because he’s had five weeks to make that they aren’t there any longer.

    • Joe did it. He must step down from the election

    • @tina As much as I dislike Joe Biden, he’s still entitled to due process of law. Even though due process seems to be a rare event in the political arena these days, it is still the law of the land.

    • Colin Arblaster | May 8, 2020 at 11:08 PM | Reply

      @Bleach Bit Have charges been pressed? No. Then I am not sure the law would pursue. What is needed is a public due process. This is beginning to be occur. This is what the victim wishes. Joe is running on a campaign based upon integrity. This to her is a falsity and he can either admit and ask for forgiveness with integrity and to continue to run or choose to step down with some integrity. Ultimately there is time now for him to be replaced with a still viable candidate.

    • He might be saying that due to such complaints having no way of getting into his personal papers in Delaware in the first place. If his personnel files (among other things) went to the senatorial archives and he can’t control where the complaint Ms. Reade allegedly filed went, what he’s saying is fine and what Ms. Reade is saying (that it _must_ be in Delaware, raid it, or he’s lying) is kind of ridiculous. I mean, if what Ms. Reade alleges actually happened and she filed a complaint, and Biden or his staff were able to get an _only_ copy of it (which is unlikely anyway), it wouldn’t be in his personal papers. It would’ve been destroyed. Either way, it’s probably not in there.

      He doesn’t have to release his papers in Delaware and his alibi for not doing so (it can be twisted against him) IMO is fine. Even still, he at least seemed open to having someone look through them anyway. If he were to allow that at all, though, he probably would’ve mandated it be done by a trustworthy party that wouldn’t leak anything manipulatively. Maybe that’s not realistic. And at stake is defeating Trump.

      gracie allan I hear you. At the same time… Trump gets a pass because we knew he was a jerk, whereas Biden is convicted in the court of public opinion because he spent 30 years serving this country…?

      I’ve been reading some of the allegations made by Trump’s accusers. I think you’ve underestimated the seriousness of those allegations.


    • gracie allan | May 8, 2020 at 11:27 PM | Reply

      @John Rabson Jr
      Funny, I actually read that same article. Most of the credible complaints are what I already described. I did see the more serious allegations. And I AM wondering why they didn’t go anywhere. I have a hard time believing the media would just drop them if they could find even a shred of corroboration. And of course they’re suspect (same as Tara Reade’s) when they come up suddenly during an election year.

      Unless someone provides at least some kind of corroboration (like a mother’s video recording, or testimony from divorce court documents, for example), it’s pretty hard to pursue (I do recognize it could still have happened, but American jurisprudence requires us to assume innocence – and that will be true for Joe Biden as well)

      For now though, I think we owe it to Tara Reade to investigate.

    • John Rabson Jr | May 8, 2020 at 11:30 PM | Reply

      gracie allan I concur. Let’s do for Biden what we did for Trump: investigate, make accusations, retreat behind the partisan Hesco barriers, and then give the guy the job anyway. ❤️

      She really should have asked do you know Tara Reade? What was your relationship when she work for you campaign. On this date did you receive a duffle bag from Tara Reade at this location. What was the importance of this bag that you must have it. If it were important why was it not already with you or taken care of bay your personal staff. Was this a set up to be alone with her because you couldn’t get her alone at the cocktail party you wanted her to work at. Even rehearsed, he would then have stumbled. Here all he needed to do is deny. That is pretty easy to do.
