On Friday, Joe Biden appeared on MSNBC’s Morning Joe to discuss the sexual assault allegations levied against him by a former staffer. The Democratic Presidential candidate denied Tara Reade’s claims, though the situation is likely to continue to dog him.
The current President is no stranger to allegations of sexual misconduct. A total of 25 women have claimed that Donald Trump abused them in some way. During a radio interview on Friday, Trump empathized with Biden’s situation and said that he is “sticking up for him.”
Trump gave his 2020 opponent the advice while speaking with Conservative radio host Dan Bongino. “I like to get in front of it and I just deny it if it’s not true,” he said.
The President then likened Biden’s situation to his own. “You deny it,” he continued. “I mean I’ve been a total victim of this nonsense, false accusations. I’ve been falsely accused by people that I’ve never even seen. I’ve never even seen many of these people, and some of them I met them — zero interest, okay? Like zero. And all of a sudden you become a wealthy guy, or a famous guy, you become president, and people just… people that you’ve never seen, that you’ve never heard of, make charges.”
“I guess you could say I’m sticking up for him,” Trump said before offering, “The worst victim I’ve ever seen before was a very high-quality human being, Brett Kavanaugh.”
