In case you missed it, Thursday night on MSNBC, Joe Biden told Lawrence O’Donnell that “If they (voters) believe Tara Reade, they probably shouldn’t vote for me,” and “I wouldn’t vote for me if I believed Tara Reade.”

Now he’s not only calling Tara Reade a liar and denying her credible allegations, but Joe Biden is also trying to sweep Reade under the rug by saying he doesn’t remember his former staffer at all. It appears that Biden doesn’t seem to remember most things these days.

Two years ago, Democrats launched incessant attacks on Brett Kavanaugh’s character and endless calls for investigations, while proclaiming that Dr. Ford should be believed. Now that Joe Biden has been credibly accused of sexual assault, Iowa Democrats like Cindy Axne and Abby Finkenauer have remained eerily silent.

 Question for Cindy Axne and Abby Finkenauer: Do you believe Tara Reade or will you vote for Joe Biden?
