Behar said she was troubled by Lauer’s column but at the same time, we couldn’t just believe people like Tara Reade “because she’s a woman”:
On the other hand, there’s another issue, like, we’re in the middle of this Tara Reade accusing Biden of sexual assault. Are we supposed to believe her just because she’s a woman? To me, if you say, I believe any woman who makes any accusation – if you say that, I think it minimizes our credibility as women, and then nobody’s going to believe anybody at some point. So these things have to be thoroughly investigated, thoroughly vetted. I would like to have all 24 of the women who were accusing Trump of sexual assault be vetted and let’s hear from them also. Let us hear from them. We heard from Tara. Let’s hear from them. We heard from Matt now. Let’s hear from the woman again. I mean, everybody has to have a voice in this. I feel as though it can be used as a political cudgel against a political rival. And that I think is dangerous.
That’s when McCain reminded Behar what the left said about Christine Blasey Ford and Brett Kavanaugh:
Kind of like with Brett Kavanaugh? I’m just saying. You hear a lot of women saying, I believe all women, but were singing an entirely different tune after Kavanaugh… but I just think its interesting that we believe all women now and we didn’t believe—It’s an entirely different tune earlier this year [sic] in the Brett Kavanaugh hearings.
