Former Vice President told the ladies of “The View” that when it comes to sexual assault allegations, “you don’t have to prove beyond a reasonable doubt.” Don’t get too excited, he is not talking about himself. In 2019 Biden spoke at “The View” table about the allegations and treatment against Supreme Court Nominees at the time, Justice Clarence Thomas and Justice Brett Kavanaugh.
“A Supreme Court hearing is not a trial. It’s a job interview. It’s a job interview. And you don’t have to prove beyond a reasonable doubt anything.” Biden asserted. Thanks for the clarity, Joe. Running for President of the United States is a job interview, a very important one. Therefore, by Biden’s own standards, he does not need to be proven innocent beyond “a reasonable doubt.” Biden’s model would also require his accuser, Tara Reade, to be given the same courtesy from Democrats as Anita Hill and Christine Blasey Ford.
Other prominent Democrats agree with Biden. Or, at least they did when it came to a conservative, Justice Kavanaugh. The Free Beacon tweeted Monday a brilliant montage of prominent Democrats and media declaring Kavanaugh scrutiny was simply a “job interview” and that he did not “deserve the presumption of innocence.” Biden’s statement on “The View” appears at the end of the montage, which highlights a starting line-up of Democrats such as Senator Kristen Gillibrand (D-NY), and Cory Booker.

“People keep talking about presumption of innocence, that is a term one uses in a criminal proceeding…it is a job interview,” said Senate Judiciary Committee Mazie Hirono ahead of Kavanaugh’s testimony before the Senate. “It’s not a criminal trial, it’s more like a job interview,” said Delaware Democratic Senator Chris Coons.
A fan favorite, Senator Kristen Gillibrand (D-NY) passionately emphasized on the senate floor that the Kavanaugh hearings “is about whether he has the privilege; the privilege to serve on the highest court of the land. This is not a court of law. This is a job interview.” Cory Booker said “it’s not about a condemnation or a criminal trial about Kavanaugh’s guilt or innocence. This is a job interview.” Please clarify Dems, is it a job interview?
Once again, guess what Joe Biden’s campaign is up to. Asking the American people for a job; and not just any job, the single most important job in the world.
