If you’re a liberal who’s thrown all in to “believe women,” it looks like it’s due process for me, but not for thee.
Actress-turned-activist Alyssa Milano, the #MeToo torchbearer who has publicly endorsed Democratic presidential hopeful Joe Biden, went on radio host Andy Cohen’s program to “explain” why she’s still supporting the former vice president even though he was recently accused by a former staffer of sexually assaulting her back in the 1990s.
And her response should likely be filed next to “hypocrisy” in the dictionary.
“I believe that even though we should believe women and that is an important thing, and what that really means is that, like, for so long the go-to has been not to believe them, so really we have to societally change that mindset to believing women, but that doesn’t not at the expense of, you know, not giving men their due process.”
“It’s gotta be fair in both directions,” she added, saying that it wouldn't be right for her to stop supporting Biden in the absence of a "full investigation."
Strange how that works when the shoe is on the Democratic foot, isn’t it? When Brett Kavanaugh was accused of sexually assaulting a woman back in high school – a 30-year-old allegation made by a woman Kavanaugh claims he’d never met, a woman whose named “witnesses” all categorically denied any knowledge of the incident, and whose gaps in memory created timeline questions and plot holes big enough to drive a semi through, who later admitted to being politically motivated – Milano was all too happy to jump on the bandwagon and bash Kavanaugh as a rapist.
But when Biden, who’s longstanding habit of getting far too handsy with women and young girls has been well-documented, is accused of sexually assaulting a former staffer back in the ‘90s, then Milano says we should pause, back up a moment, wait for due process.
There's a reason most actors and actresses should stick to acting.
