Joe Biden was directly questioned about Tara Reade’s allegations for the first time yesterday, and the presumptive Democrat nominee denied her claims. But if Biden needed some additional assistance, former Obama adviser David Axelrod came along to vouch for Joe’s past:
Before @JoeBiden was selected VP by @BarackObama, vetters for the campaign scoured every aspect of his record, career and life. Tara Reade or complaints of sexual harassment or assault never came up. I know. I was there.

As many Democrats have demonstrated, the “believe women” talking points have been indefinitely suspended pending the results of the upcoming presidential election.
Well I'm convinced. https://t.co/r3jyVyqkK7

The party that lionized Bill Clinton and Ted Kennedy couldn’t have possibly overlooked anything in their vetting process, could they? *Eye roll*

Next thing we hear is you will be claiming your vetting means there is no need for an investigation of the matter by the FBI. Partisan clown.

Yes, but he wasn't in the hallway when Tara says Biden abused her. Nobody was, it's her word against his. The question is will they perform the same scrutiny on him as they did on Kavanaugh #MeToo. https://t.co/ulYVs6j01q

Peter Daou certainly isn’t buying what Axelrod’s selling:
Well then you did a questionable vetting job.
