Disgraced comedian Bill Cosby, who was convicted of three counts of sexual assault in 2018, has given an angry and defiant interview in which he expresses no remorse for his actions.

The interview with Black Press USA, which is Cosby’s first interview from prison since his conviction, shows that the 82-year-old comedian still maintains that he has been framed for the sexual assault that got him sentence to up to ten years in jail.

“It’s all a set up,” Cosby said, referring to his trial. “That whole jury thing. They were imposters.”

Cosby also claimed that he would show no contrition if asked by the parole board if he had any regrets for what he’s done.

“When I come up for parole, they’re not going to hear me say that I have remorse,” he said. “I was there. I don’t care what group of people come along and talk about this when they weren’t there. They don’t know.”

Trump’s strategy against Joe Biden and the coronavirus is to increasingly accept defeat: columnist

In an op-ed for the New York Times this Tuesday, Ross Douthat says that the Trump administration is beginning to see the writing on the wall as Election Day grows closer.

According to Douthat, Trump's 2020 campaign "has been stuck toggling back and forth between two very different narratives."

"One seeks to replay the last campaign, portraying Joe Biden as the embodiment of a failed establishment (hence all the references to his 47 years in Washington) who will sell out American interests to China as soon as he’s back in power," he writes.

The other is Trump apparently insistence in running against Joe Biden as if he's Bernie Sanders. While a skilled campaigner could have weaved these narratives together, their contradictions are more obvious when coming from Trump. "The resulting incoherence just feeds his tendency to return to old grudges and very online grievances, as though he’s running for the presidency of talk radio or his own Twitter feed," writes Douthat.

Trump declared war on mail-in voting — he ended up shooting himself in the foot

Published

Donald Trump's war on mail-in voting seems, like many of his schemes to steal the election, to be backfiring.

As much as he may publicly deny it, Trump knows he's unpopular and cannot win a free and fair election.

Since nearly the beginning of the coronavirus pandemic, Trump has been waging war against mail-in ballots, which many millions of Americans are using this year in order to avoid crowded and unsafe polling places.
