Bill Maher on Cosby’s accusers: ‘There’s no glamour in saying an old creep forced himself on you’

Published

on

Comedian Bill Maher told the Star-Advertiser that he did not have to reconsider his opinion of Bill Cosby after allegations of serial rape surfaced — because he already believed Cosby was a “nightmare” to women.

“I knew an actress who worked on a movie with him in the ’80s,” Maher said. “She did not say that he tried to drug her, but she did say that for the first two weeks, he tried every day to [sleep with] her, and when it became clear that she wouldn’t, he made it a nightmare for her being on that set.”

“So,” he added, “I’ve never liked that guy, and I’ve never thought he was funny.”

Maher did note that the current media climate is one in which “anyone can say anything,” but he differentiated between the allegations against Cosby and those made against other celebrities.

“This is not like Woody Allen or Michael Jackson,” he said. “Woody Allen had one accuser with a clear reason to hate him.”

“This is 24 accusers over three or four decades — that’s a lot of smoke. You have to look at motivation. What motivation could Beverly Johnson have?” he asked, referring to the former supermodel who accused Cosby of giving her a drugged cappuccino and attempting to rape her.

“[Johnson] has fame, she has money,” Maher said. “There’s no glamour in saying an old creep forced himself on you.”

Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D-NY) on Monday accused President Donald Trump of presiding over "the worse government blunder in modern history."

At his daily COVID-19 briefing, Cuomo said that it was time for the president to hit the "reset button" on his handling of the pandemic.

"If we don't tell the truth on the reset, COVID will never end," the New York governor explained. "It will ricochet across the country. It will just bounce back and forth."

"This was a colossal blunder -- how COVID was handled by this federal government," he continued. "Shame on all of you. Six months, lives lost. Hit the reset button, yes."

Trump snaps at Jim Acosta for reminding him of coronavirus death toll: ‘Fake news CNN’

Published

President Donald Trump on Monday snapped at CNN's Jim Acosta when he reminded the president that the novel coronavirus so far has killed 155,000 Americans.

During a question-and-answer session with reporters, the president boasted that the United States had done an "amazing" job at handling the COVID-19 pandemic, at which point Acosta interrupted him and tried to ask him about the 155,000 people who have died from the disease in just five months.

"The U.S. has so many deaths," Acosta said.

"Hold it!" Trump replied.

"So many countries around the world..."

"Fake news CNN," he said. "Hold it. We have done a great job in this country. We haven't been given enough -- not me, Vice President Pence, the task force -- have not been given the kind of credit."

Published

on

One family in Texas recently used their loved one’s obituary to criticize President Donald Trump and Texas Gov. Greg Abbott for allowing “needless” COVID-19 deaths.

David W. Nagy died alone in a hospital bed, leaving behind his "inconsolable wife."

"He suffered greatly from the ravages of the COVID-19 virus and the separation from his much loved family who were not allowed at his bedside," the obituary says.

"Family members believe David's death was needless," the obituary continues. "They blame his death and the deaths of all of the other innocent people, on Trump, Abbott and all the other politicians who did not take this pandemic seriously and were more concerned with their popularity and votes than lives."
