The problem is it doesn’t actually matter if Reade is telling the truth. Her accusation and “the left’s” response to it proved what anyone not of their ilk already understood to be true. Their virtue only extends as far as they wish it to reach and they will always carve out exceptions for themselves. The progressive movement is defined only by how hypocritical it is willing to be.
I was a probable Biden voter with a never Bernie streak, the response to Reade has put me firmly in the “never Democrat” camp and made me a possible Trump voter. At least the stupid shit that comes out of his mouth is authentic.
