During an interview on radio program The Breakfast Club, comedian Damon Wayans stunned host Angela Yee with a full-throated defense of embattled comedian Bill Cosby, calling the women who allege he sexually assaulted them “bitches” and claiming many of them were “un-rape-able.”
“If I was him, I would divorce my wife, wink wink, give her all my money, and then I would go to a deposition, I’d light one of them three-hour cigars, I’d have me some wine, and maybe a Quaalude, and I would just go off, because I don’t believe he was raping,” Wayans said.
“I think he was in relationships with all of them, and then he’s like, ‘You know what, it’s 78, I can’t get it up for any of y’all, bye bitches,'” he continued. “And now they’re like, ‘Oh, really? Rape.’ Forty years — listen, how big is his penis that it gives you amnesia for 40 years?”
Despite the fact that Yee pointed out that many of the woman had come forward years ago, Wayans continued on.
“But if you listen to them talk, they go, ‘Well, the first time.’ The first time?!” Wayans attempted to explain.“Bitch, how many times did it happen? Just listen to what they’re saying.”
“And some of them, really, is un-rape-able. I look at them and go, ‘No, he don’t want that. Get outta here!’” He later added, “Look, I understand fame. I’ve lived it. Women will throw themselves at you. They just want to be in your presence. There’s some that innocently will come up there, but not 40-something women. They’re not that naïve.”
Wayans later backtracked, saying of some of the some of the women who claim they were sexually assaulted, “And for them, my heart goes out to them. For anybody who was raped by Bill Cosby, I’m sorry, and I hope you get justice,” however he wasn’t done attacking, once again calling women “bitches” and wondering why Cosby would rape a drugged woman, saying: “What’s the joy of banging someone that’s asleep?”

Joy Reid medical expert blasts the president’s lies on coronavirus: ‘Trump needs to stay in his lane’
MSNBC anchor Joy Reid interviewed Dr. Bernard B. Ashby about the latest coming from the White House on the coronavirus pandemic.
"If, for instance, you did not test for pregnancy, does it mean you are not pregnant?" Reid asked.
Ashby, a cardiologist from Miami, praised the anchor on her new primetime show, "The ReidOut," but did not directly answer the question.
"And in terms of the whole discourse, the fact that I'm having to respond to Trump about clinical medicine is ridiculous," Dr. Ashby explained.
"Trump needs to stay in his lane. Like, we went to medical school for a long time, we did training for a long time to speak on exactly what ... we have the expertise to speak on and the fact that Trump is asserting himself in academic medicine, into clinical medicine is ridiculous," he explained.
‘One whopper after another’: CNN’s Acosta tears into Trump for lying the Postal Service can’t deliver enough ballots
On Monday's edition of CNN's "The Situation Room," chief White House correspondent Jim Acosta slammed President Donald Trump's litany of lies about mail-in voting at the day's coronavirus press briefing.
"Right at the end of that press conference, the president was just telling one whopper after another about mail-in voting, at one point saying that he doesn't believe that the U.S. Postal Service has the ability to deal with mail-in balloting at election time," said Acosta. "We just need to point out, the U.S. Postal Service put out a statement late this afternoon that says, 'the Postal Service has ample capacity to adjust our nationwide processing and delivery network to meet projected election and political mail volume, including any additional volume that may result as a response to the COVID-19 pandemic.'"
