Tara Reade, a former aide to presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden who had accused him of sexually assaulting her in 1993, has lashed out at former secretary of state Hillary Clinton after she became the latest Democratic heavyweight to endorse him. Reade, 56, said that she had voted for her in the 2016 presidential election and after Hillary’s endorsement came she was distraught to see her backing Biden who she called a “sexual predator”.

Speaking to Fox News, Reade said, “I voted for Hillary Clinton in 2016. I voted for her in the primary. I'm a lifelong Democrat. But yet, what I see now is someone enabling a sexual predator and it was my former boss, Joe Biden, who raped me.”

Tara recently criticized TV anchors for not asking Biden questions on the issue

Recently, Reade slammed noted TV journalist Anderson Cooper along with other anchors for not asking Biden any question over the alleged rape that took place when Biden was the senator from Delaware. He reportedly mistreated her when alone after she went to give him some stuff. She accused him of penetrating her with his fingers as well. Reade said she lost respect for the media anchors’ coverage since they did not quiz Biden over the accusations even after a month went by since the revelation

Biden’s campaign has denied the charges outright, although, with several new sources corroborating the former Senate staffer’s account in media reports now, fresh demands have emerged that the former vice president should address the issue personally.

Reade, who was 29 when the alleged incident happened, slammed Hillary more saying she “has a history of enabling powerful men to cover up their sexual predatory behaviors and their inappropriate sexual misconduct”. She said America needs to get rid of the culture and its new generation wants the “institutional rape culture” to end. 

Reade also asked while taking on the media recently if it would remain silent had personalities like President Donald Trump or Supreme Court Associate Justice Brett Kavanaugh had such charges against them.

Hillary said she is thrilled to be part of Biden's campaign

On Tuesday, Clinton, who was the Democratic presidential candidate in 2016 and lost to Trump, joined Biden on his livestream to endorse the 77-year-old leader’s campaign. “I am thrilled to be part of your campaign, not only to endorse you, but to help highlight a lot of the issues that are at stake in this presidential election,” Clinton told the former vice president, who called her “the woman who should be president of the United States”.

Supporting Biden at the expense of the incumbent, the 2016 defeat to whom still haunts Hillary since she had won more popular votes, she said at the beginning of the livestream: “Think of what it would mean if we had a real president not just somebody who plays one on TV, but somebody who gets up every morning worried about the people that he’s responsible for leading during this crisis.”

A day ago, Biden’s team announced a Women’s Town Hall with a ‘special guest’, and hours later, Hillary sent out a tweet suggesting she was that guest.

Both Hillary and Biden were in the contest for the presidency in the 2008 election although it was Barack Obama who eventually bagged the nomination. The duo later served under the Obama presidency.
