McCarthy Blasts Pelosi “She is being a hypocrite…has she talked to Tara Reade?”

GOP Leader Kevin McCarthy Blasted Nancy Pelosi for her support for Joe Biden despite sexual allegations by Tara Reade against him.

Appearing on CNN, Pelosi said “I have great sympathy for any women who bring forth an allegation, and I’m a big strong supporter of the Me Too movement. I think it’s made a great contribution to our country. And I do support Joe Biden. I’m satisfied with how he has responded.

“I know him. I was proud to endorse him on Monday. Very proud to endorse him. And so I’m satisfied with that,” she added.

Per Newsweek, McCarthy argues that Pelosi is applying a different standard to Biden than she did when Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh was accused of sexual assault during his September 2018 confirmation hearing.

“She is being a hypocrite,” McCarthy said on a Thursday call with reporters. “Has she talked to Tara Reade? Has she ever looked into it? Joe Biden has not responded to this.”

“You can’t say one thing about every other time she has commented about any accusation and now say it is OK. She endorsed Joe Biden after knowing the Tara Reade situation,” McCarthy continued.

On September 18th 2018, Nancy Pelosi tweeted:

September 28th, Pelosi tweeted:
