Senator Daines’ niece, Maria Piacesi, claimed that Joe Biden pinched her during a Swearing-In Ceremony in 2015. She made the accusations in the comments of a Tik Tok video.
She later deleted the comment, claiming that some people would be mad if they found that out. Maria is currently 14-years-old, but at the time she was only eight.
Here are screenshots of the entire conversation, followed by the video from 2015:
She is the only child of Rob and Christie Piacesi. She describes herself as “very social” and has a very upbeat demeanor.
“Did Joe Biden pinch you?” a user by the name of Jonathan Pasetti asked, to which Piacesi responded, “Yes.” However, soon after, she deleted her comment.
“Why did you delete the comment?” Pasetti asked. “I have friends that would no longer be friends with me if they knew that,” Maria Piacesi replied.
Pasetti then added: “Those ‘friends’ are not true friends then. You were abused by a pervert and deserve justice, but only you can exact that justice by telling others.”
Maria Piacesi then sent the user a direct message via the TikTok app and said that she’s wanted to speak out about her assault but that she fears that she won’t be believed and will be seen as an outcast.
“I would do something about it — to be honest — if I thought it would help, but it would only make more people angry and I’ve already had people calling me out saying I’m lying and this is BS [bullsh*t], even though it is not. I just don’t think it would help with anything right now,” Maria Piacesi said.
The user then responded, “I understand your apprehension. The first thing, though, is not letting him get away with it because then he can do it to others. I just want you to know that there are millions of people who are on your side and they believe you. There is video evidence of what happened and I believe you. We all believe you.”
Some say the screenshots are photoshopped, and that Maria is lying, but for now, there is no information whether the screenshots or her claims are actually accurate.
