Even though the allegations made by Tara Reade against Joe Biden are not warranting the same media coverage as allegations made by Christine Blasey Ford during now-Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation hearings, they are not going away anytime soon.
With Dems trying to push the allegations under the rug, Reade has issued a direct challenge to Joe Biden for both of them to take a lie detector test, CNBC reports.
A test for the truth
By attacking Reade and insisting that she’s lying, Dems have proven once again #MeToo is more of a political movement than a push to help women get justice.
But since Democrats and the liberal-leaning media will not give Reade her day, she is now taking the bull by the horns and putting a challenge on the table for Joe Biden to clear himself once and for all.
While talking to former Fox News personality and former Today show host Megyn Kelly, Reade offered to take a lie detector test, “if Joe Biden takes one,” CNBC reported.
Reade also said in her interview with Kelly that she hopes Biden will drop out of the presidential race, but that she doubts he will.

Is he up to the challenge?
Biden, for his part, has denied Reade’s allegations, and many Democrats have fallen in line behind him. But that doesn’t mean Americans have. So how can Uncle Joe put this entire debacle behind him?
One way is for both Biden and Reade to take a polygraph test. If Joe passes and Tara fails, by her own admission, this would be over. If, however, Joe is hiding something, and he fails the lie detector test, it would just about end the former vice president’s campaign.
Is he willing to take that chance? It seems unlikely, as Biden will continue to ride his denial and insist Reade is making this up.
Still, Reade has since secured a very high-profile firm to represent her in this matter, which is a game-changer in terms of the flak Joe Biden is about to catch. Maybe he’ll opt to take a polygraph and clear the record once and for all. In the meantime, I won’t be holding my breath.
