Feminist magazine columnist brushes off Biden's sex assault allegations and says he would get her vote even if he 'boiled babies and ate them' because she is so desperate to get Trump out of the White House

A feminist writer has brushed off Joe Biden's sexual assault allegations and says she would vote for him to be president even 'if he boiled babies and ate them'.

Magazine columnist Katha Pollitt, 70, wrote she was so desperate to get President Donald Trump out of the White House that democrat presumptive nominee Joe Biden had her vote despite allegations he sexually assaulted Tara Reade in 1993.

Writing in The Nation, where she has a bimonthly column called Subject To Debate, Ms Pollitt said: 'I would vote for Joe Biden if he boiled babies and ate them.'

'I cannot believe that a rational person can grasp the disaster that is Donald Trump and withhold their support from Biden because of Tara Reade,' she added. 'I would say this even if I had no problems with Reade's account.'

Ms Pollitt is well-known for her prominent writings on feminist discourse and has written books titled; Reasonable Creatures: Essays on Women and Feminism, and Subject to Debate: Sense and Dissents on Women, Politics and Culture.
