The left and the media — yes, I know they are one and the same — love to chant “believe all women.” But isn’t it interesting how they abandon this “mantra” when one of their own has sexual assault or inappropriate behavior allegations brought against them?
The perpetrator here is Alyssa Milano.
Milano attempted to come to Biden’s rescue after 2 women came forward to accuse the former Vice President of inappropriate behavior.
Former Nevada State Sen. Lucy Flores told her story on Friday, accusing Biden of “touching” her during a 2014 campaign rally. “I felt him get closer to me from behind. He leaned further in and inhaled my hair,” she wrote on The Cut. “I was mortified. I thought to myself, “I didn’t wash my hair today and the vice-president of the United States is smelling it. And also, what in the actual fuck? Why is the vice-president of the United States smelling my hair?” He proceeded to plant a big slow kiss on the back of my head. My brain couldn’t process what was happening. I was embarrassed. I was shocked. I was confused. There is a Spanish saying, “tragame tierra,” it means, “earth, swallow me whole.” I couldn’t move and I couldn’t say anything. I wanted nothing more than to get Biden away from me.”
A Connecticut woman, Amy Lappos, came forward Monday describing a similar experience with Biden during a 2009 political fundraiser.
"It wasn't sexual, but he did grab me by the head," Lappos told The Courant Monday. "He put his hand around my neck and pulled me in to rub noses with me. When he was pulling me in, I thought he was going to kiss me on the mouth."
To respond to these women’s stories the actress expressed her realization that not all women’s experiences are the same and made it a point to show how much of a privilege it is to be a friend of the Democratic presidential hopeful in a tweet.
I am proud to call Joe Biden a friend. He has been a leader and a champion on fighting violence against women for many years, and I have been fortunate to accompany him to events with survivors where he has listened to their stories, empathized with them, and comforted them. pic.twitter.com/cI0jsKlu3P— Alyssa Milano (@Alyssa_Milano) April 2, 2019
“I am proud to call Joe Biden a friend,” she wrote. “He has been a leader and a champion on fighting violence against women for many years, and I have been fortunate to accompany him to events with survivors where he has listened to their stories, empathized with them, and comforted them.”
“That's who Joe Biden is,” she continued. “A warm, generous individual who believes its on all of us to pay attention to women's stories and experiences.”
The “tweeters” did not let her get away with this one, a bunch pointed out her hypocrisy. Especially over Milano's past rants against Brett Kavanaugh during his Supreme Court nomination. "I believe Dr. Christine Blasey Ford," she tweeted at the time.
Maybe if people like u were consistent, Franken couldve gotten the investigation he asked for & we would still have him as a really strong progressive senator fighting. Zero tolerance is only good in theory. Nuance & context matters as u now see while caping 4 Biden. #Consistency pic.twitter.com/QsqcFh8zYj— Lindz Domminigue (@its_lindz) April 2, 2019
You are free to support whomever you choose, to be as inconsistent, unprincipled, cynical, etc as you please. It's a free country. You should run for federal elected office, too. You'll get plenty of big donor support. That sort of amoral shamelessness is highly desirable.— Greek Stav (@GrkStav) April 2, 2019
No no no NO. Just NO.— Fawnica (@fawnica) April 2, 2019
Soooo sexual harassment only matters when it in pertains to Trump and his supporters. Got it 👌— Andrew Caple (@Andycapes58) April 2, 2019
Oh, how awesome it is when the ideology you hold dearly turns back and bites you right between the back pockets.
“Believe all women” is a phrase phonies chant when they want to get someone they don’t like thrown out of office, thrown in jail, and silenced. This type of thinking does not hold up when one of their male friends is the person being targeted.
With all that said, Biden is one “creepy” dude and this often viewed video below obviously shows that.
