Furious leftists call to cancel MSNBC’s Chris Hayes for critical segment on Biden sexual assault allegations

Backlash has begun brewing against MSNBC, of all networks, for daring to cover the credible allegations of sexual assault that have been lodged against presumptive Democrat presidential nominee Joe Biden.

Late Wednesday evening, network host Chris Hayes invited mainstream media contributor and left-wing feminist Rebecca Traister onto his weekday show to share her thoughts about Biden’s dilemma, and suffice it to say, her thoughts weren’t pleasant to the left.

Two days earlier, Traister had penned a piece for New York magazine blasting Biden for looking to his “progressive female colleagues” to defend him from accuser Tara Reade’s accusations. She doubled down on this line of thinking Wednesday on MSNBC.

What this is creating is a kind of a perfect storm where the women who are being asked to support his opponent are now being asked to answer for these charges,” she said.

In part because of the vacuum created by Joe Biden who is not yet really directly answering these questions, and certainly, not doing what I wish he would, which is to say: ‘Please direct your questions about these allegations to me, and not the women that are out there offering their support to my candidacy.'”

Her argument was half accurate. While his “colleagues,” particularly those desperately vying to be his vice president, aren’t responsible for defending him from Reade’s accusations, they are expected to account for their hypocritical desire (example below) to work with a man whose history suggests he has no respect for women.

“The man in question, the nominee, the former vice president, is going to have to address them, and not have Stacey Abrams or anyone else, or [Sen.] Kirsten Gillibrand do that,” Hayes replied, agreeing with the accurate part of Traister’s argument.

Within moments of the segment airing, tribalistic outrage began to emerge on social media from those far-left members of the Democrat Party who believe Biden deserves to be immune from any and all legitimate criticism because #OrangeManWorse, #OrangeManBad, #OrangeManMustBeDefeated, #OrangeManOrangeManOrangeMan.

The backlash was so severe that the hashtag #FireChrisHayes emerged as well.

Look:

It’s not clear how covering legitimate allegations of sexual abuse makes one guilty of “irresponsible journalism,” as the latter Twitter user put it.

This type of cognitive dissonance appears to be a mainstay of the modern Democrat Party. It may be best exemplified by a recent Biden piece from The New York Times.

“The Times said in their article that they fully investigated Reade’s account and found ‘no pattern’ of sexual misconduct by Biden…despite the fact that they also write that seven women had previously accused Biden of inappropriate touching — some of which is corroborated on video,” conservative Amber Athey recently noted.

“The cognitive dissonance of such a claim was summed up perfectly in a now-deleted tweet posted by the Times: ‘We found no pattern of misconduct by Biden, beyond hugs, kisses, and touching that women previously said made them uncomfortable.'”

It seems that, so long as the perpetrator is a Democrat, the same left-wingers who previously shrieked #BelieveAllWomen are simply incapable of actually believing all women.

And this means any coverage of the legitimate allegations against Biden must be motivated by something sinister. In Hayes’ case, it’s because he’s allegedly a “Bernie Bro.”

Look:

Despite what far-left zealot Bill Palmer posited, the evidence against Biden is legion, and no amount of excuse-making and cognitive dissonance will change that.
