By Saturday afternoon, the hashtag #DropOutBiden was trending on Twitter.

Many point out that the Democratic Party mobilized en masse to try and derail the confirmation of Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court after decades-old allegations of sexual misconduct surfaced.

The lack of attention given to the Reade allegations are likely due to the fact that Biden is ahead in polls against the incumbent, President Trump, and that defeating the Republican in November is paramount to anything else, observers say.

Glenn Greenwald, the journalist from The Intercept who is a critic of Biden and a supporter of Sanders, tweeted: ‘Liberals are destroying all the #MeToo progress right before your eyes in order to protect Biden and trash his accuser as an unstable liar.
