Dem Ladies Whitmer, Warren, Supports Biden’s “Credible” Statements Against Reade, 26% of Voters Want Him Out
As Biden expressed his commitment to choose a female VP, ladies of the Democratic party, Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer, and failed Democratic Nominee Sen. Elizabeth Warren continued to air their support for “Sleepy Joe” amidst sexual assault allegations. The problem? A growing number of Democratic voters wanted him out.
On Monday, Warren told CNN congressional reporter Manu Raju that she believed that Biden’s statements are both “credible” and convincing” despite the lack of formal investigation on the matter. The failed Democratic nominee said, “I saw the reports of what Ms. Reade said, I saw an interview with Vice President Biden.” Warren added that she “appreciates that the vice president took a lot of questions, tough questions. And he answered them directly and respectfully.” She then continued to voice out her staunch support for the Democratic nominee, saying that she continues to support his campaign and that she is “proud” to endorse him as her president.
Biden addressed the allegations on left-wing media MSNBC’s “Morning Joe.” The former Vice-President claimed that his former staffer, Tara Reade’s sexual assault allegations were completely false. “It never happened. It didn’t. It never happened,” Biden vehemently denied.
Another die-hard Biden fan, Gov. Gretchen Whitmer, also went on to dismiss the sexual assault allegations against the presumptive Democratic nominee during an interview for NBC’s “Today.” Whitmer, who had been under intense scrutiny for allegedly violating constitutional rights with her strict stay-at-home orders, declared that “under these circumstances,” Biden would make a good president.
The show’s host, Craig Melvin, brought up Whitmer’s political aspiration to be Biden’s possible running mate. The host also went on to add that the Michigan Governor was a sexual assault survivor, and asked her if she wanted to share her opinion on the matter. Whitmer responded that “I’ll just say you know I’ve read a lot about allegations. I’ve talked with Joe Biden. I am confident he is who he says he is.”
However, Whitmer continued to remain cautious, saying that women should be given a space, and should be listened to. However, the governor claimed that the focus should be on the 70,000 Americans who have died as a result of the deadly coronavirus. She even went on to compare the death toll to 9/11 casualties. She also pointed out that 30 million more have been unemployed, and believed that Biden could serve as a good president.
The problem is that Reade’s sexual assault allegations have cost him a huge percent of Democratic voters. On Monday, the Morning Consult Poll released the data that 26% of American voters wanted Biden to drop out. Despite the huge loss of voter’s confidence, a sizable number of 61% of Democrats continued to believe that Biden remains “credible.”
Earlier, the New York Times also lauded the Democratic National Committee’s announcement to set an “unbiased” panel to launch an investigation to discredit Reade. Much to the chagrin of other media personalities, NYT’s attempts were called a “mockery” and “satire.”
