Former Hillary advisor calls on Joe Biden to drop out of the race

April 26, 2020

  Despite the mainstream media’s attempt at suppressing the sexual assault allegations against the presumptive Democratic Presidential nominee, and despite most Democrats treating these allegations much differently than they did the allegations against Brett Kavanaugh, hoping they will go away, it does appear as if people are starting to see the problem with nominating a candidate who apparently has trouble keeping his hands to himself in the #MeToo age.

  After all, these same Democrats told us all allegations must be taken seriously and all women must be believed, and they also told us Donald Trump was disqualified for the Presidency for a decades-old comment, so you can see where it could be a problem.

  There is talk, albeit it mostly seems to be coming from Bernie Sanders’s corner, that Joe Biden will be replaced at the convention due to these allegations and now according to this story a former advisor to Hillary Clinton is calling for good ole Uncle Joe to drop out of the race. Here is more:

Peter Daou called Saturday for former vice president and presumptive 2020 Democratic nominee Joe Biden to drop out of the race.

Citing new evidence of possible sexual misconduct, Daou — who had previously advised both former Secretaries of State Hillary Clinton and John Kerry — argued that the party could not afford for Biden to not take the accusations of former aide Tara Reade seriously.

Daou began by saying that “BIDEN SHOULD WITHDRAW,” noting that, while he respected the will of the American people, “Credible rape accusations are disqualifying or we have NO moral standards.”

Calling a Biden withdrawal both “the ethical position AND the smarter strategy to beat Trump,” Daou went on to say that Democrats would “lose ALL moral authority if we embrace ‘the lesser of two accused rapists.’”

  Coming from a former Clinton advisor this opinion should carry some weight and he is right about the Democrats losing any moral authority they think they might have after the way they have attacked Donald Trump on the same issue. If the Democratic voters are honest with themselves there would be no way they could vote for Joe Biden. But of course we know a little hypocrisy will not stop them if they think Joe Biden gives them the best chance to oust Donald Trump, and that would show us they never really cared about Donald Trump’s alleged victims in the first place.

    Interesting shuffle. The right has demanded that sexual misconduct be practiced fairly. Brett Kavanaugh got hammered, but Biden gets a pass….so far. But I don’t think Peter Daou gives a rip about Tara Reade. Daou knows what we know, Joe can’t make it. So this is as good an excuse as any to lose Joe.
    What surprises me is that we don’t hear from the 30 PLUS candadates that ran against Joe in the primaries.

      I think you are probably right and there would be no talk of replacing him if they thought he had a great chance at beating Trump.

    That would clear the way for Moosch, a black women, a feminist, a millionaire, a former First Lady, a victim of racism and
    Anti-feminist discrimination all the way to her several no-show hallowed university positions. While Zero was merely a mulatto born in Indonesia his wife is a full blooded negress with more axes to grind than her sexually confused pot smoking beach bum community organizing husband ever had. And damn any white racist who doesn’t vote for her. So now I’m going to walk my dog…..oh snap, I don’t have a dog.

    I would say all going as planned….they don’t want to raise the issue too early with the virus thing eating up the air……. closer to the convention we will see traction on this story… just one person’s thought.. 🙂
