When it comes to being falsely accused of sexual misconduct, President Donald Trump holds a reigning trophy. The man knows a thing or two about how to properly handle that kind of situation. While it is unclear if the allegations against former Vice President Joe Biden are true or not, I do commend Trump for calling on Biden to defend and explain himself.
Trump summoned Biden on Thursday to respond to the allegations against him from a former Senate aide.
“I don’t know anything about it. I don’t know exactly. I think he should respond. It could be false accusations. I know all about false accusations. I’ve been falsely charged numerous times,” Trump said to reporters.
The Hill reports:
The president pointed to Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh, who was accused of sexual assault by multiple women during his confirmation process last year, to suggest men can be falsely accused of wrongdoing. Trump has repeatedly called Kavanaugh’s treatment a “disgrace” and dismissed the veracity of the claims against him.
Reade is one of several women who accused Biden last year of inappropriate touching. Biden apologized to the women and said he would adjust his behavior.
Last month, Reade said for the first time in public that Biden had also sexually assaulted her in a secluded place on Capitol Hill in 1993. She is the only woman to accuse Biden of assault.
Biden’s campaign casually brushed off the allegations. However, Biden has not publicly addressed them himself. It’s best he does it sooner rather than later. He has been scheduled to appear on ”Morning Joe” and is expected to respond to the questions about the claims.
