Rose McGowan Nukes 'Creep' Joe Biden: 'Answer Tara Reade'
#MeToo activist trashes former vice president over sexual assault allegations
#MeToo activist Rose McGowan has nuked Joe Biden over his refusal to respond to sexual assault allegations recently levied by a former staffer.
On Tuesday, actress McGowan blasted former Vice President Biden as a "creep" and demanded that he "answer Tara Reade," his accuser.
McGowan slammed the presumed Democrat presidential nominee as more details emerged to corroborate Reade's rape allegation.
Reade worked as a staffer for Biden in the early 90s when he was a Delaware senator and says he viciously assaulted her sexually in 1993.
Ms. Reade says Biden allegedly threw her "up against the wall" and forced his hands "underneath my clothes" before "he penetrated me with his fingers."
She says she was forced out of her job after the alleged assault and cites the incident as ending her career in Washington D.C.
McGowan made the remarks in response to a tweet from the Biden campaign that said that Biden would host a town hall Tuesday afternoon on how the pandemic is impacting women.
"Let me guess? [Michelle Obama] is endorsing you?" McGowan tweeted.
"Answer your taxpayers, answer Tara Reade, stop speaking through your manager.
"You are a creep. You know it. We know it. I know it. Tara definitely knows it. #DropOutBiden”

McGowan’s comments come in response to the growing scandal involving Reade's allegations that the Biden campaign and the mainstream media have attempted to ignore.
"It happened all at once…his hands were on me and underneath my clothes," Reade said as she described the alleged assault.
"Yeah, and he went down my skirt but then up inside it, and he penetrated me with his fingers, and he was kissing me at the same time, and he was saying something to me.
"He said several things. I can’t remember everything he said.”
More evidence that Reade had told people about the alleged incident at the time emerged last week.
A video clip resurfaced from that year that allegedly featured Reade’s mother calling into CNN to ask what she should do about her daughter who was having problems with a “prominent senator.”
#BREAKING: HERE is the video from August 11,1993's 'Larry King Live' described by @TheIntercept (and Tara Reade) as allegedly featuring her mother calling in and alluding to Reade's sexual assault claims against @JoeBiden (blog here by @ScottJW) https://t.co/fCgEqBnX7n pic.twitter.com/V5FGHskv56— Curtis Houck (@CurtisHouck) April 24, 2020
The video supports the "credibility of Reade's allegation against" the former vice president, according to The Intercept, which reported the new evidence.
Transcript of the video:
LARRY KING: San Luis Obispo, California, hello.
CALLER: Yes, hello. I’m wondering what a staffer would do besides go to the press in Washington?
My daughter has just left there, after working for a prominent senator, and could not get through with her problems at all, and the only thing she could have done was go to the press, and she chose not to do it out of respect for him.
KING: In other words, she had a story to tell but, out of respect for the person she worked for, she didn’t tell it?
CALLER: That’s true.
As Neon Nettle reported earlier on Tuesday, another source has now also gone public to corroborate Tara Reade's sexual assault allegation against Biden.
Reade's former neighbor Lynda LaCasse - a self-described "strong Democrat" - has come forward saying she remembers Biden's former staffer confiding in her about the assault shortly after it allegedly happened, describing her as "devastated" by it.
The neighbor has spoken on the record to the Business Insider about the incident.
LaCasse says that Reade discussed the heinous accusations with her in the 1990s.
"This happened, and I know it did because I remember talking about it," said LaCasse.
LaCasse confirmed the graphic details of Reade's account to the Business Insider.
"I remember her saying, here was this person that she was working for and she idolized him," LaCasse said.
"And he kind of put her up against a wall. And he put his hand up her skirt," she added, repeating more details.
"She felt like she was assaulted, and she really didn't feel there was anything she could do."
Rose McGowan's fellow #MeToo advocate Alyssa Milano also finally turned on Biden early on Tuesday morning after recently endorsing the ex-VP despite the scandal.
Milano joined calls for Reade to be "heard," declaring: "I hear and see you, Tara."
Joe Biden has so far refused to respond to the accusations.
The Biden campaign has denied the allegations.
