(ConservativePeak.com)- Joe Biden has already promised to pick a woman as his VP candidate, and it looks like he’s going to fulfil that promise. Already on his shortlist are failed Democratic presidential candidates Senators Kamala Harris and Amy Klobuchar.
Both candidates are sufficiently “progressive,” parrot the usual anti-Trump talking points, and are, of course, willing to ignore sexual assault allegations against Joe Biden.
Both Harris and Klobuchar were perfectly willing to engage in character assassination efforts with then-Supreme Court Judge nominee Brett Kavanaugh, as the Daily Wire notes, but this time are keeping quiet about accusations made by a former Biden staffer.
Tara Reade is a former Senate staffer who worked for Biden in 1993, and in March 2020 she told a podcaster the extreme nature of the assault. Reade alleges that Biden kissed her, touched her, and even penetrated her with his fingers without her consent.
However, when Fox News reached out to both Klobuchar and Harris (along with 14 other women who are believed to be on Biden’s shortlist,) the media outlet received just three responses.
Fox News reports:
“Fox News on Tuesday reached out to the offices of 16 of the women who have been speculated about as possible Democratic vice presidential nominees, including Ses. Kamala Harris, D-Calif., and Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., as well as Rep. Val Demings, D-Fla., former Deputy Attorney General Sally Yates and several others. None responded as of Wednesday morning.”
Fox reported that the three responses they received offered no comment on the allegations.
Klobuchar did, however, speak to NPR recently in which she referenced an investigation by the New York Times that found no evidence of a pattern of behavior. That was even though the newspaper acknowledged the many incidents in which women said they were uncomfortable with how Biden physically touched them.

Many pundits called out the insanity of the NYT’s comments.
As for Harris? She didn’t even offer vague comment. She’s just kept quiet.
Perhaps they are taking lessons from the deputy campaign manager for Joe Biden, Kate Bedingfield, who has been responsible for tackling the accusations in the media. In an official statement, she claimed, “Women have a right to tell their story, and reporters have an obligation to rigorously vet those claims.”
So I guess that means Biden doesn’t believe all women any more.
