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

Published

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.”

This was in light of my previous criticisms of Biden's apparent condescension towards girls and women, and his pockmarked history on gender relations in general.

Cory Booker rips Biden for praising racist senators: ‘You don’t joke about calling black men boys’

Published

Sen. Cory Booker (D-NJ) blasted Joe Biden for praising two segregationist senators he'd served with as a lawmaker.

The former vice president and current Democratic presidential frontrunner reminisced about his relationship with Mississippi Democrat James Eastland and Georgia Democrat Herman Talmadge, two notoriously racist senators during the Civil Rights era, reported The Hill.

“At least there was some civility, we got things done," Biden said, recalling that Eastland had never called him "boy." "We didn't agree on much of anything. We got things done, we got it finished."

Most Republican voters admit to feeling ‘embarrassed’ and ‘exhausted’ by Trump’s comments

Published

on

Some diehard supporters of President Donald Trump have asserted that they admire the fact that he is so unapologetic about his rhetoric and his actions. But according to a new Pew Research survey, most Republican or Republican-leaning voters admit that they sometimes feel “embarrassed” or “concerned” about things that Trump says.

According to Pew, 53% of Republican or Republican-leaning voters say they sometimes feel “embarrassed” by Trump’s comments — while 59% are sometimes “concerned” by them. Some of the adjectives Pew ran by GOP or GOP-leaning voters were even stronger, including “angry,” “exhausted” and “frightened.”
