Biden supporters demand MSNBC fire Chris Hayes for covering Tara Reade’s sexual assault allegation
Some supporters of former Vice President Joe Biden demanded that MSNBC fire host Chris Hayes after he covered the sexual assault allegations against the presumptive Democratic nominee.
Former Biden Senate staffer Tara Reade alleged last month during a podcast interview that Biden pushed her against a wall and digitally penetrated her during an encounter in 1993, Salon’s Amanda Marcotte reported before other outlets like The New York Times and Washington Post covered the accusations.
While the Biden campaign has denied the allegations, the former vice president has not personally addressed them. The claims gained traction this week when two women — a former neighbor and a former colleague — came forward to corroborate elements of the story in Business Insider.
