Hollywood star Rose McGowan just called on President Donald Trump to make a donation on behalf of Joe Biden to a fundraiser for Tara Reade, the woman who has accused Barack Obama’s former vice president of sexually assaulting her back in 1993.
“@realDonaldTrump Please make a donation to gofundme.com/f/aid-tara-reade…in Biden’s name,” McGowan tweeted on Tuesday.

McGowan wrote this in response to Biden, who had tweeted, “Donald Trump needs to do his job.” This comes one week after the launch of a GoFundMe campaign called “Help Tara Reade Fight Back,” the goal of which is to raise $200,000 for Reade.
“#MeToo was supposed to mean #TimesUp for all men who abuse their power by sexually harassing and assaulting women. No exceptions. This includes Joe Biden,” the GoFundMe page states. It goes on to add that 50 percent of proceeds “will be donated to NVRDC [Network for Victim Recovery of DC], a nonprofit that gives survivors of sexual assault physical, emotional and legal services.”
“The rest will go to Tara for safety and security costs, then to her legal costs, then to helping her reclaim her reputation,” the campaign continued. “If more is raised than Tara needs, all will be given to nonprofits supporting sexual assault and domestic violence survivors.”
McGowan has been a longtime defender of Reade, ever since she came forward with her claims earlier this year. Back in April, she slammed the Washington Post for an article in which the publication claimed to have “been examining Tara Reade’s allegation over the past three weeks,” and even admitted to obtaining notes from Reade’s therapist about sessions with her. “This is not journalism, this is an agenda,” McGowan tweeted. “This is a hit piece. You’ve sunk to a new low in slanted journalism and victim shaming.”

McGowan also took to Twitter last week to call for the arrests of Bill Clinton and Prince Andrew in the wake of the FBI taking Jeffrey Epstein’s former madam Ghislane Maxwell into federal custody.
