Kellyanne Conway recently addressed Joe Biden’s response to the Tara Reade sexual misconduct allegations. While speaking to reporters Friday, the White House counselor said she felt a “big chill” when she saw the Biden interview where he denied any sexual misconduct toward Reade.
Conway called his remarks “troublesome” and then called for Reade to speak publicly on the matter, so there are more definitive answers. She went on to call out “the hypocrisy” of high-ranking politicians who claim to stand by women only when its convenient.
“I felt a big chill when I saw Vice President Biden’s response to that because you only see him shrug his shoulders,” she explained. “He said it didn’t happen — end of story — and I’m really disappointed in so called prominent powerful politicians like Nancy Pelosi and Amy Klobuchar basically saying something…some variation of ‘it’s Joe Biden, we know Joe Biden, it didn’t happen.’”
Fmr. VP Joe Biden denies Tara Reade’s sexual assault allegations:
“No, it is not true. I’m saying unequivocally, it never, never happened.”
