A columnist for The Nation, Katha Pollitt, made more than one headline when she published an opinion piece in which she explored why she believes Democrats shouldn’t be concerned with the accusation against Joe Biden.
The former vice president has had to face his own round of scrutiny after a former staffer, Tara Reade, accused him of sexually assaulted her in the early 90s.
News of Reade’s accusation caused many on the right to question whether Democrats would flee from Biden in support of their mantra about believing women. However, Pollitt took her stance a step further, opening her Op-Ed by saying that she “would vote for Joe Biden if he boiled babies and ate them.”
“He wasn’t my candidate, but taking back the White House is that important.”
Pollitt went on to make the case that Democrats shouldn’t feel compromised by their support of Biden, despite the accusations, because Reade’s story about the assault leaves something to be desired.
