Tucker Carlson did something that the left-wing media never does with President Trump or with any conservative: Carlson urged viewers to carefully scrutinize Tara Reade’s disturbing rape allegations against Democrat Joe Biden before swallowing them wholesale as fact.

Carlson noted the “infuriating and sickening hypocrisy of the media and the professional feminist movement” in its double standards concerning the flimsy accusations against Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh and the credible allegations raised by Reade.

However — as in the case of the 11th-hour accusations that surfaced right before Kavanaugh’s confirmation hearing — Carlson questioned the timing of Reade’s claims. (Tara is a liberal, and liberals have been known to lie profusely to push left-wing agendas.)

Tucker said: “As we learned so bitterly during the Brett Kavanaugh hearing, political imperatives sometimes influence claims like this. That does not mean that Tara Reade is some kind of liar or a devious partisan. We are not saying it now, to be clear. We are not asserting that.”

Carlson continued: “But the timing does mean — and this is our duty — that we ought to keep our guard up as this story progresses. Those of us who cover it going forward should be very wary of being used. This is a presidential year. Weigh everything against the facts. Take nothing for granted. The one thing you can be certain of this year is you are being lied to [by someone].”

Reade was a former staffer for then-Senator Joe Biden who claimed that he sexually assaulted her in July 1993.

Tara, then 29, says she was fired after complaining that Biden had shoved her against a wall and digitally penetrated her (that’s rape).

A month after she was fired, Reade’s mother called in to Larry King’s CNN show and lamented that her daughter had been abused while “working for a prominent senator.”

Several other friends and family members of Reade revealed that she had complained about Biden’s sexual harassment at the time she was his aide. In a court of law, contemporaneous evidence carries a lot of persuasive weight.

Bernie Sanders supporters have slammed Democrats for ignoring and downplaying Reade’s rape claims allegations against Biden.

Not surprisingly, Democrats who tried to destroy Justice Brett Kavanaugh over flimsy, last-minute allegations have rushed to Biden’s defense.

They breathlessly insist that Biden deserves the due process that they callously denied Kavanaugh when they recklessly smeared him as a “gang rapist.”

Unlike in Biden’s case, there was no corroborating evidence to support any of the claims against Justice Kavanaugh.

Indeed, there was a mountain of exculpatory evidence suggesting that Kavanaugh’s accusers lied through their teeth.


However, Tucker Carlson pointed out that Reade appears to be a Bernie supporter and had teased on Twitter a few months ago that she might drop a bombshell against him. Carlson also noted that Reade has recently praised Biden on Twitter.

“It’s notable before Joe Biden started beating Bernie Sanders in the primary, Tara Reade wasn’t attacking Joe Biden,” Carlson said. “Instead, she had effusively positive things to say about him.”

Tucker said: “That’s what we know so far about the Tara Reade story. Decide for yourself what you make of them. We’ll be updating it regularly.”

Carlson is correct: It is an election year, so you can be sure that Democrats are crouched in dark backrooms somewhere encouraging someone to concoct false claims against President Trump as the November election approaches.
