Kamala Harris' Words Are Coming Back To Haunt Joe Biden, She Told Reporters Of Biden's Sexual Assault Accusation, 'I Believe Them'

As the 2020 presidential election draws closer the presumptive Democratic nominee, Joe Biden, faces a major challenge.
And that challenge is not being brought to him by President Donald Trump or Republicans but by his running mate, California Sen. Kamala Harris.
The things that Harris has said about Biden are a treasure trove for Trump and the Republicans to use as fodder for campaign ads.
In April of 2019 Harris was asked about the women who accused Biden of sexual harassment and inappropriate behavior and she was not shy about answering  the question.
“I believe them, and I respect them being able to tell their story and having the courage to do it,” she said.
The interview came even before Biden had decided to run for president and, at the time, Harris said that was a decision he would have to make.
“He’s going to have to make that decision for himself. I wouldn’t tell him what to do,” Harris said.
Biden issued a video in a tweet defending himself against the charges but not declaring himself to be innocent when the allegations were made.
“Social norms are changing. I understand that, and I’ve heard what these women are saying. Politics to me has always been about making connections, but I will be more mindful about respecting personal space in the future. That’s my responsibility and I will meet it,” he said.
Around a year after those accusations against him a new accusation, this time of rape, came from former Biden staffer Tara Reade.
And when it did Sen. Harris, who at that time had left the Democratic presidential race, said to the San Francisco Chronicle, that Reade “has a right to tell her story.”
“And I believe that and I believe Joe Biden believes that, too,” the senator said, “women must be able to speak without fear of retaliation.”
And in between, during the Democratic presidential debate on June 27, 2019, Harris came just short of calling Biden a racist, prefacing her attack by stating that “I do not believe you are a racist” and then going into something that sounded like she did believe he was a racist.
“It was actually hurtful to hear you talk about the reputations of two United States senators who built their reputations and career on the segregation of race in this country.
“It was not only that but you also worked with them to oppose busing. There was a little girl in California who was part of the second class to integrate her public schools. She was bused to school every day. That little girl was me,” she said.
Now the woman President Trump calls Phony Kamala is Biden’s running mate. But those words will live forever, or at least until November 3, 2020.
