One would think the commander in chief would be a bit tied up with the Iran nuclear deal, or scheduling a golf game, but maybe not. Barack Obama has seen fit to weigh in on the Bill Cosby rape case, and maybe you can get an idea of where he falls on the issue by what he said. Are you ready for this?
American Urban Radio Networks White House correspondent April Ryanasked Obama whether he would revoke Cosby’s Medal of Freedom, awarded in 2002. A petition to that effect is currently circulating. Obama had this to say:
“With respect to the Medal of Freedom, there’s no precedent for revoking a medal. We don’t have that mechanism. As you know, I make it a policy not to comment on the specifics of cases where there still might be, if not criminal, then civil issues involved. I’ll say this: if you give a woman, or a man, for that matter, without his or her knowledge, a drug, and then have sex with that person without consent, that’s rape. And I think this country, or any civilized country, should have no tolerance for rape.”
Last week news came out that Cosby used drugs/gave drugs to women before sex.
Court documents unsealed last week revealed that Cosby had admitted to drugging a woman with the intent to have sex with her. One of the many women who have accused Cosby of drugging them, Beverly Johnson, shared her story in a 2014 Vanity Fair article.
