The president avoided outright calling Cosby a “rapist.”
President Obama at the press conference this morning.
President Barack Obama was careful about his wording when he answered a question about Bill Cosby at a press conference this morning. While he managed to avoid calling the 77-year-old comedian a rapist, he did make an allusion to the declassified court documents in which Cosby confesses to giving women quaaludes with the intention of raping them (not, as so many media sites insist on writing, to have “sex” with them. Sex would require that both partners be conscious and consenting).
