Without directly accusing Bill Cosby of raping anyone, President Obama said Wednesday the dozens of accusations levied against the disgraced comedian clearly constitute rape.
The comments came up in the context of a recent petition to revoke Cosby’s Medal of Freedom, which Obama said he had no mechanism to do, calling such a move “unprecedented.”
Then, after saying he doesn’t like to comment on pending litigation, the Harvard Law-educated leader of the free world commented on pending litigation, calling the accusations against Cosby an clear case of rape.
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, any civilized country, should have no tolerance for rape.
Thank you, President Obvious.
