    I don't believe in voting but you're right, I would vote for Trump. He has the right ideas to get this country back on track. Look at what he did for his buddy Kanye, could happen to you liberals too if you believed in business instead of letting the illegals take up all our stock money

    I believed Reade’s initial accusation that Biden made her feel uncomfortable in the workplace but was skeptical when she changed her story & accused him of sexual assault a couple months later. Now I’m starting to believe that too. This is pretty damning. @cpt awesome WPG joint acc you read this?

    To be honest I just find this entire thing disgusting. The left is saying the same type of s--- about Reade that the right said about Ford during the Kavanaugh fiasco. And now the conservatives saying "all the liberals should apologize to Kavanaugh" ummm no the lesson isn't "believe no women" here guys. I don't mean this to say we shouldn't approach situations like this without any skepticism (esp in the case of politics), as touchy of a subject as it is. But after reading a number of different articles from different POVs the evidence seemed pretty comparable in both cases and I believed them both. Obviously this was timed to hurt him but that doesn't make it necessarily true or false in and of itself.

    I didn't find the change of her story or her former praise of Biden to be that weird because that lines up with what happens with a lot of r--- survivors. It's common for people who've faced trauma/abuse of any kind to only slowly reveal the entire truth about the full extent of happened as they accept it or feel more comfortable. And it's also common for people to pretend nothing happened by overcompensating ie praising Biden.

    Of course I have. And, look - this is the game that's being played. I don't care about a vague call her mother made to Larry King, or a vague recollection of some kook. What I do care about is how this is definitively being pushed by Russia. It's an absolute character assassination designed to splinter the party and weaken Biden. Sad we take the bait.

    Meanwhile, Trump is an actual, guaranteed predator.

    Oh c'mon. This is what I'm talking about.

    I know the internet loves to armchair psychologize this stuff but we... don't know Reade, or her motives. And what we do know, is very strange and suspicious lol. It's not honest to wave a magic wand and rationalize these clearly timed and politically charged allegations with #MeToo double talk.

    no.

    edit - the Kavanaugh comparison is such a shallow apples to oranges comparison. With K, he was an unknown essentially being considered for a lifetime appointment; that's the difference. Her timing makes sense. Biden has been a prominent figure for decades, suddenly - six months before he (hopefully) defeats Trump - this charge emerges? As trent would say YAWN.

    Who timed it? Is it possible he tried to hit on her, and/or she's just nuts.... bigger point: maybe (just maybe) it doesn't matter what some rando has to say about a likely contrived encounter 30 years ago? like FFS

    edited with more context. what you're saying is right its just contxtualizing it re: reade is extremely almost laughably charitable to her and whoever is irl driving this smear campaign. we have to be smarter.

    That might be true but as Andy pointed out, he’s been in the public spot light for so long. He was Vice President 8 years. That combined with her odd praise of Putin & seemingly no one being able to corroborate her story but two family members just made me skeptical. Also, the fact that the NYT couldn’t find anyone who worked under Biden during her tenure to corroborate her story nor did they find any other accusations of sexual harassment/sexual assault i thought was significant.

    however, the corroboration from her neighbor who is a democrat + the verification of her mother calling Larry King does add significant credibility to this accusation imo.

    how so? it very clearly points to her initial claim - that she felt creeped out by biden and ignored by his staff or w/e. not r---. out of context its vague enough to corroborate anything but no.

    look, it seems clear this is a person who has gone through some personal struggles with enough to wonder if she’s mentally well. again, and as u point out correctly, not the case w blasey ford.

    there is a contingent of elitists that genuinely are detached from the reality that Joe Biden won this primary (in part because quarantine has bent people’s perception of the campaign) and they truly think he should be removed from the ticket. so the fact some democrats are engaging in this doesnt surprise me.

    insofar as this is a vehicle for that it’s going to get traction

    it adds credibility to her individually. It shows she’s not just making s--- up. Not necessarily credibility to the r--- accusation specifically.

    Yeah but this is bordering conspiracy theory without any solid footing. Both things can be true: her accusation is legitimate & it is being pushed now for political reasons. We have at least some kind of foundation to entertain the prior but as for this being pushed by political operatives, there really isn’t anything to indicate that yet. Not saying it’s not possible but...I’m not about to go full Alex Jones with this theory.

    I mean, you saw the 2016 election. I assume you see the reality disconnect that exists on Twitter. I'm not peddling a theory this is what's going on lol

    Yeah, I should have been more specific. It’s definitely being pushed by certain individuals for political reasons. Whether or not someone is actively guiding Reade or advised
    her to come out with these accusations for political reasons is unknown. Again, it wouldn’t surprise me but we just don’t know if somebody is whispering in her ear with a bigger agenda.

    I’m half joking lol. I was talking about @Head Bussa’s post of supporting Tulsi over H. Clinton, Pelosi & Schumer. Tulsi is essentially a Kremlin spokesperson now so I hope you wouldn’t agree with that lol.

    Yeah Tulsi isn’t the move but I’m still not high on the Clintons, Schumer, or Pelosi.

    You think any cannabis legislation will move forward under Biden?

    Anybody else here on Trump’s Truth Platform? It’s actually really well built and has real news.

    Tulsi sold out @Enigma. She wasn’t always like this

    she flipped on so many positions and policies

    she used to be a champion for Medicare for all and anti-war

    now she panders to Tucker and his crowd. She went on his show to promote drone strikes even though she used to be so against them. She spoke at CPAC and said she felt right at home

    she used to be principled like Bernie but she has obviously been compromised. She resents the Dem establishment so much she’ll pander to right wingers just like Jimmy Dore does now. NOW she’s a fraud. She didn’t used to be.

    Pelosi, Schumer, Clinton are still pieces of s---.

    Tulsa is a disappointment. Jimmy Dore is a disappointment. Glenn Greenwald is a huge disappointment. Dave Rubin has always had an IQ of 75... now he is getting paid.
