Buck Sexton, the host of “The Buck Sexton Show” said Friday that Joe Biden and fellow Democrats are “completely rewriting history” when it comes to the Brett Kavanaugh hearings and there’s no better example than the former vice president’s interview on “MSNBC” when he was stumped on key questions about the double standard.
Sexton played a clip from “The Morning Joe” when co-host Mika Brzezinski read off quotes from the Kavanaugh hearing from Democrats like House Speaker Nancy Pelosi about believing women accusers “every time” and then asked him: "Are women to be believed unless it pertains to you?"
Biden essentially gave a non-answer. He said women are to be given the “benefit of the doubt” when they first make the allegation.
“But then you have to start looking at the circumstances and the facts,” he said. “And the facts in this case do not exist. They never happened. And there have been so many inconsistencies in what has been said in this case. So you just look at the facts and I assure you it did not happen. Period. Period.”
Tara Reade, a former Senate staffer claimed that in 1993, Biden, who was a senator at the time, sexually assaulted her. Business Insider interviewed two sources that corroborated some of her claims.
The allegations put the entire Biden campaign in jeopardy. Biden sees an opportunity to defeat President Trump by dominating the women's vote and even vowed to pick a female running mate. Reade’s allegations put these female candidates in an uncomfortable position to have to explain why the decades-old allegations against Kavanaugh were more worthy of repulsion than the one made against Biden.
Brzezinski then asked the logical next question as to why it is different now, and asked Biden if he regretted his comments during the Kavanaugh hearings.
Biden said his message was clear even then. He said the presumption should be that Christine Blassey Ford was telling the truth unless it was proven that she wasn’t telling the truth.
Sexton said that was not what Biden said during the Kavanaugh hearings.
“Remember, the standard was the Kavanaugh should have to step down from the nomination in disgrace despite nothing being proved about him,” Sexton said. “They couldn’t prove a damn thing. They could not prove anything that was being alleged, not one bit of it.”
Sexton laid out the standard that Democrats set in their effort to-- not only prevent Kavanaugh from being approved for the High Court-- but to destroy him.
“This was the standard: Women have the right to be believed and even the doubt that an accusation creates is enough for you not to be on the supreme court and not be in a position of authority. You get to be ruined, just so we’re sure. That was the standard.”
