Biden takes surprising hits from Mika Brzezinski

Biden takes surprising hits from Mika Brzezinski

If Joe Biden expected his interview with “Morning Joe” co-host Mika Brzezinski to be political softball – as I also believed – we both were surprised.  In querying the former Vice President about the accusation of sexual assault leveled by former staffer Tara Reade, Brzezinski stayed true to her hardline left-wing feminist viewpoints.

Readers of my commentaries will know that I am way no fan of Brzezinski’s political views, strident feminism, or arrogant demeanor, but I can concede – after seeing this interview – she is not the hypocrite as are many – most — of her feminist compatriots.  They have been giving Biden a pass from the start of the Reade affair.

Yes, I am talking about those same ladies of the left who engaged in hyperbolic criticism over unproven allegations against President Trump and Justice Brett Kavanaugh.  They were the ones who demanded that every woman who accused a man of sexual misconduct must be believed … period.  Not listened to.  Not investigated.  BELIEVED.

Among those who supported that unique and dangerous legal doctrine was Biden, himself.  During the Kavanaugh confirmation hearings, Biden said, “For a woman to come forward in the glaring lights of focus, nationally, you’ve got to start off with the presumption that at least the essence of what she’s talking about is real.”

Brzezinski read Biden his quote and asked him why Tara Reade should not be believed.  Despite his old quote, Biden fibbed.  He claims that he only said such accusations should be investigated for the facts to be determined.  Of course, Biden knows that such cases rarely offer up hard facts – just a lot of she said/he said.

Of course, Biden claimed the incident never happened – and he has no idea what motivated Reade to make such an accusation.

Biden said the National Archives should research its files to see if there is any complaint by Reade.  But he saw no reason to check out his files at the University of Delaware for any reference to Reade.  Brzezinski noted that those files were set to be released to the public but were inexplicably re-sealed until “after Biden leaves public life.”

Biden repeatedly assured Brzezinski that there was nothing in those files.  But then why she asked repeatedly, he would not authorize at least a search for the Tara Reade name to ensure total transparency.

Brzezinski had Biden squirming.  He just kept repeating that the described event never happened … never … not ever.  He had no defense against all the questions that remain unanswered.

Brzezinski did miss one opportunity to push back on Biden’s obvious side-step.  Biden claimed that no one has ever known of any such behavior on his part.  Actually, several women have come forward to tell stories of Biden’s “inappropriate behavior” touching, hair-sniffing, uninvited kisses on the back of the head and face, shoulder-rubbing and other actions often described as “creepy.”

Biden did the only thing he could do – deny, deny, deny.  Unlike most other Democrat women, at least Brzezinski did not let him get away with a simple denial.  She pressed hard enough that his denials lost credibility as the interview proceeded.

Whether the interview was politically harmful – or to what extent – it can be said that it seems to have done little to put the matter behind him.

Brzezinski’s left-wing feminist political views may be repulsive to me – that has not changed – but at least she did not join her lady allies on the field of hypocrisy.  I will give her credit for that.

So, there ‘tis.

    Is it possible the Democratic Party/Mainstream Media establishment has realized the big mistake they have made in pre-selecting Biden? And now they want him to crash so they can find someone else of their choosing? I have been thinking it would be Michelle Obama, but this weekend I was horrified to read some are saying Hillary Clinton for President and Barack Obama for vice-president. If that is the case, timing is critical. They want the vote when they can still project the image of rescuing the country before people remember the horrors of the past.
