The Presidential election is right around the corner, and with only three debates between now and then, candidates will need to be strategic with how they use their time. Tuesday’s debate will be many viewers’ first introduction to Joe Biden as a candidate in 2020. Here’s how he can win them over.

Judging by campaign rhetoric, it’s fair to expect Tuesday’s debate to involve harsh attacks from both sides. But a slugfest only helps Trump. This is because voters already know who Trump is, and they know what a Trump presidency feels like.

Joe Biden has been credibly accused of sexual assault, and it is irresponsible for Democrats to ignore these allegations just because the accused is our presumptive nominee.

In fact, for a moment, put the general election aside. The “but Trump is worse” arguments are not the point, should not be the point when a woman comes forward. I’m not telling you how to vote in November. I’m telling you Joe Biden sexually assaulted Tara Reade in 1993. If you support him anyway, that is up to you.

Tara Reade worked as a staff assistant in Biden’s Senate office in 1993…
