Tara Reade blasts ‘arrogant’ Joe Biden for supporting investigation into Cuomo after dismissing sex assault allegation she made against him – as she declares there will be a ‘reckoning’ against the President and ‘the truth will be prevail’
- Tara Reade accused Joe Biden of sexually assaulting her in 1993; Biden has emphatically denied the allegation
- This week, the President stated that he supported an investigation into claims Gov. Cuomo sexually harassed multiple women
- He also declared that all women should be believed
- Reade is now accusing Biden of hypocrisy, because he never supported her calls for an investigation and never told the public that she should be believed
Tara Reade has blasted ‘arrogant’ Joe Biden for calling for an investigation into sexual harassment claims made against Gov. Andrew Cuomo – while flatly dismissing the allegations she made against him.
Reade, 56, went public last year, claiming Biden sexually assaulted her in a hallway while she was working as a Senate staffer in 1993.
Biden vehemently denied the claim – but that hasn’t stopped him from saying that all women should be believed.
When discussing the sexual harassment allegations against Gov. Cuomo during an ABC interview on Wednesday night, Biden stated: ‘A woman should be presumed to be telling the truth and should not be scapegoated and become victimized by coming forward. There should be an investigation to determine whether what she says is true.’
Biden added that Cuomo – with whom he has been friends for decades – could also be criminally prosecuted if an investigation yields evidence that the claims are true.

Cuomo has been accused of sexual harassment by at least eight different women
Now, Reade says Biden is being hypocritical – because he has never said her claims should be investigated and he has never asserted that she should be ‘presumed to be telling the truth’.
‘The trauma I experienced by Biden was very real,’ Reade told Fox News on Friday.
‘The fact he is calling for another official’s investigation and possible criminal sanctions for similar charges is showing the height of arrogance about never being accountable for his own.’
Reade also vowed that there will one day be a ‘reckoning’ and that ‘the truth will prevail’.
Speaking with Fox, Reade also accused the mainstream media of a cover-up, claiming they failed to take her accusations seriously.
“The alarming deflection and compliance of the media to allow Joe Biden to negate his own sexual misconduct is predictable but still shocking as a survivor to be so publicly erased,’ she stated.
Reade’s public resurfacing comes after radio host Charlamagne Tha God claimed it was hypocritical for people to be calling for Cuomo’s resignation after voting for Joe Biden.
Cuomo has been accused of sexual harassment by at least eight different women.
Reade is pictured in 1993 – the year she claims she was sexually assaulted by Biden
Reade was one of several women who came forward in 2019, claiming Biden had touched them inappropriately.
In March last year, she offered a new allegation, claiming Biden stuck his hand down her skirt and penetrated her in a Congressional hallway when she worked for him as an aide in 1993.
Biden denied the claims, and Biden staffers at the time say they can recall no such incident.
Reade had previously claimed that Biden liked her legs and wanted her to waitress at a Capitol Hill cocktail party while she was on staff. Reade also complained that he was touchy-feely, putting his hands on her shoulders, neck and hair.
Despite the allegations, media networks largely ignored her story and did not push for the opening of an investigation.
Reade said in 2020 that Biden sexually assaulted her while she was working as a Senate staffer. Biden has vehemently denied her claims, and current and former Biden staffers say they cannot recall such an incident
