Tuesday on NBC’s Today, Gov. Gretchen Whitmer dismissed the sexual assault allegations against presumptive Democratic nominee Joe Biden, claiming that “under these circumstances” — meaning the coronavirus pandemic — Biden will be a good president.
“I’ll just say, you know I’ve read a lot about allegations. I’ve talked with Joe Biden. I am confident he is who he says he is. I do believe that women should be given space, and they should be listened to, but I also know it’s incumbent we vet thoroughly.” What about “Believe all women”? Where was the vetting for the accuser of Trump Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh?
“In this moment, I think under these circumstances and the conversations that I’ve had with the vice president, I am confident he is who he says he is, and I believe him,” Whitmer continued. “I believe he’ll be a good president for the United States of America. Beyond that, you know, I don’t know there’s much more I can add.”
So when it comes to sexual assault allegations, the left’s new motto is “Believe all accused Democrats.”
