All women must be believed — unless the woman is accusing a Democrat.
That’s apparently the sick and twisted logic of Hollywood left-wing activist Alyssa Milano, who demanded the Senate reject Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh over flimsy allegations from decades ago yet thinks Joe Biden deserves due process after a former staffer accused him of sexually assaulting her years ago.
Actress and #MeToo activist Rose McGowan took to Twitter this week to air her thoughts on the media for “covering up for Creepy Joe Biden.”
“Tt’s because the public sees your favoritism and your utter hypocrisy. Yes, you go after the reprehensible Trump, but leave Biden accusations alone. You are the problem,” she said.
She called the media a “complicity machine” that “is hard at work covering up for Creepy Joe Biden.”
I don’t have Covid-19, but the media in USA is making me ill. The complicity machine is hard at work covering up for Creepy @joebiden. Has @nbcnews asked any hard questions? Everyone knows he’ll lose, why not go hard? Why not TELL THE TRUTH https://t.co/N1ToDtBbDn

In a later interview, McGowan called out former Charmed co-star Milano over her support for Biden, the subject of a recently surfaced sexual assault accusation.
Both McGowan and Milano have been outspoken regarding the #MeToo movement — which encouraged victims to come forward.
Milano recently addressed her endorsement of Biden and said he deserved due process after he was accused by his former staffer of sexual assault.
In response, McGowan called Milano a “fraud.”
“This is about holding the media accountable. You go after Trump and [Supreme Court Justice Brett] Kavanaugh, saying believe victims, you are a lie,” McGowan continued in a tweet, sharing an audio clip of Milano speaking to Andy Cohen. “The corrupt [Democratic National Committee] is in on the smear job of Tara Reade, so are you. Shame.”

Last month, journalist Katie Harper released an audio clip of an interview with Tara Reade, a former staff assistant to Joe Biden, in which Reade claims that Biden sexually assaulted her in 1993.
Reade begins by detailing how she was instructed to rush a gym bag to Biden at the time. Upon reaching then-Senator Biden with the bag, Reade claims that he greeted her by name, and proceeded to sexually assault her in a “side area.”
“We were alone, and it was the strangest thing. There was no, like, exchange really, he just had me up against the wall,” Reade claims.
“His hands were on me, and underneath my clothes,” Reade later says. “He went down my skirt, but then up inside. He penetrated me with his fingers.”
Reade alleges that Biden was kissing her and asking her if she “wanted to go somewhere else,” and that after the alleged assault was complete, he said, “C’mon man, I heard you liked me.”
Reade told Harper that Biden’s alleged phrase stuck with her because it made her think about what she “might have said.”
For me, it was like everything shattered in that moment because I knew that we were alone. It was over, right? He wasn’t trying to do anything more – but I looked up to him, he was like my father’s age, he was like this champion of women’s rights in my eyes and I couldn’t believe it was happening. It seemed surreal. I just felt sick because when he pulled back, he looked annoyed, and he said something else to me that I don’t want to say, and then he said – I must have looked shocked … I don’t know how I looked, but I must have looked something because he grabbed me by the shoulders, and said, “You’re okay. You’re fine. You’re okay. You’re fine,” and then he walked away, and went on with his day.
She then told Harper what Biden allegedly said:
He just like pointed at me and he said, “You’re nothing to me!” And then he just looked at me and said, “You’re nothing. Nothing.” … I must’ve reacted because that’s when he took me by the shoulders and he said, “You’re okay. You’re fine. You’re okay.”
Harper notes there are no witnesses to the alleged assault, but that “Tara’s brother and Tara’s close friend” both “recalled her telling them about the incident at the time.”

Last year, Biden was accused by several women early last year of inappropriately touching them without their consent.
