Biden Gave ‘Pretzel Defense’ on MSNBC — ‘On Every Side and Contradicting Himself and Twisting Himself in Knots’
Saturday during an appearance on Fox News Channelâs âFox & Friends,â Sen. Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) insisted presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Joe Bidenâs accusations of sexual misconduct were really serious and required an investigation.
Biden is accused by their former U. S. Senate staffer Tara Reade of sexual strike, which Reade maintains occurred in the first 1990s.
Blackburn pointed away the double standard employed with regard to Biden, a Democrat, and additional Republicans, and called into concern Bidenâs interview with MSNBCâs âMorning Joe,â which she said he presented a âpretzel defense.â
â[W]hat we are just fascinated with right now is the double standard,â she said. âI will tell you â so many women have reached out to me this week are talking about fairness, and they see a lack of fairness in this issue around Tara Reade. They feel as if the Me Too movement has actually served a purpose to make it easier for their daughters and granddaughters to say, âSomething wrong was done to me.â But then they see the Democrats using Me Too when itâs convenient and dismissing it when it is not convenient.Â AndÂ Iâll tell you â Listening to Joe Bidenâs interview yesterday, I said we should call this the âpretzel defense.â He was on every side and contradicting himself and twisting himself in knots as he gave that interview yesterday.â
