A new pro-Trump ad titled “Shattered” by Great American PAC uses the voice of Tara Reade and actual footage of former Vice President touching women and girls.
Great American PAC writes in the YouTube video intro:
By her own account, Tara Reade’s life was shattered by Joe Biden’s sexual assault in 1993. Now leading Democrats and a biased national media are trying to sweep this story under the rug to protect Biden. It is despicable and dripping with hypocrisy when compared to the confirmation of Justice Brett Kavanaugh. We must make sure Tara Reade’s story is heard and Biden’s troubling history with women is well known.
The Hill reports a super PAC supporting President Trump’s reelection campaign will release a new ad on Tuesday featuring audio clips from Tara Reade, who has accused former Vice President Joe Biden of sexual assault.
The Great America PAC is putting six figures behind the ad, which will run online first. The group plans to put more money behind it and to run it nationally on TV in the coming weeks.
The ad, which is called “Shattered,” plays audio of Reade recounting her allegations of assault over footage of Biden touching different women and girls.
“Tara Reade said Joe Biden sexually assaulted her,” text from the ad reads. “Democrats and the media are trying to ignore her chilling story. We won’t let them.”
Reade is never pictured over the course of the 60-second ad, but she can be heard saying: “I would see him at meetings and he would basically put his hands on me. Put his hands on my shoulder, run his finger on my neck. He was very, like, handsy with a lot of people. There was no, like exchange, really, he just had me up against the wall and then his hands were on me and underneath my clothes.”
Later, Reade says Biden “went down my skirt but then up inside it.”
The ad closes with text that says: “Four others have corroborated Reade’s story. Biden refuses to release records that may have more evidence. Tara Reade’s life was shattered in 1993. Joe Biden’s lie must be shattered in 2020.”
Reade, who worked in Biden’s Senate office in 1993, alleged publicly for the first time in March that Biden had sexually assaulted her in an empty corridor on Capitol Hill.
Biden denies the allegations.
