On Thursday, presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden encouraged those who believe his former senate staffer Tara Reade’s allegations probably shouldn’t vote for him.
Biden made the suggestion after once again denying that he sexually assaulted Reade and saying that he doesn’t remember even knowing who she is.
“Do you remember Tara Reade, who worked there for about, around a year in 1992-93?” Lawrence O’Donnell asked.
“Well, to be honest with you, I don’t,” Biden said before stating that he thinks Reade’s claims should be “thoroughly vetted.”
O’Donnell then mentioned women who were once ready to vote for Biden, but are now struggling to decide if they should still support him in light of Reade’s allegations.
“What would you say to them about their vote?” O’Donnell asked. Video Below
“I think they should vote their heart and if they believe Tara Reade, they probably shouldn’t vote for me,” Biden replied. “I wouldn’t vote for me if I believed Tara Reade.”
Biden went on to claim that Reade’s story has “changed considerably” despite her making the same allegations repeatedly. Video Below
