Lisa Bloom slammed after saying she believes Tara Reade but still supports Biden to “Fight Trump”

Attorney Lisa Bloom caused a stir on Twitter with a controversial tweet stream where she speaks directly to Biden accuser Tara Reade and says she believes her but will still support Joe Biden.

Responding to a story from Buzzfeed News, Bloom wrote:

I believe you, Tara Reade.
You have people who remember you told them about this decades ago. We know he is “handsy.”
You’re not asking for $.
You’ve obviously struggled mightily with this.
I still have to fight Trump, so I will still support Joe.
But I believe you. And I’m sorry

Needless to say, many were not impressed and responded.

Bloom elaborates on her position in additional tweets, writing:

I believe you, Tara Reade.
You have people who remember you told them about this decades ago.
We know he is “handsy.”
You’re not asking for $.
You’ve obviously struggled mightily with this.
I still have to fight Trump, so I will still support Joe.
But I believe you. And I’m sorry

The only alternative is Trump, credibly accused of sexual misconduct by over 20 women and who openly bragged about sexual assault. I represented 4 of them.

We’ve only 2 choices.

Trump’s ignorance and arrogance has resulted in COVID deaths of tens of thousands.

Far worse.

Biden will appoint a progressive female VP, and has a long history of fighting for women’s rights. Trump opposes everything I care about: climate change, human rights, treating immigrants with respect.

I understand Ms. Reade has this same struggle as she opposes Trump too.

Ms. Reade’s struggle is just like that of the hundreds of victims I’ve represented for decades, and still do.

I have also sued and gone after many Democrats though I am a lifelong Dem. I used to think sexual assault was more common on the right but it’s not.

It’s everywhere.

And while Fox News seems very interested in this story, what about the sexual harassment case I’m litigating against them right now? Where is the support for one of their own, the brave @BrittMcHenry, forced to fight even after major brain surgery?
