President Obama Vs. Bill Cosby: “He Raped Those Women”

Bill Cosby and President Obama

Nationwide — Well, maybe those weren’t his exact words. But President Obama did speak on the issue of Bill Cosby’s allegations, and said that the claims against the actor/comedian would, in fact, amount to rape. He also added, however, that he is not inclined to revoke the Presidential Medal of Freedom for Bill Cosby because there is no precedent for such a step.

Obama commented: “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, that’s rape. I think this country, any civilized country, should have no tolerance for rape.”

Meanwhile, rape victims’ organizations across the country others are calling on the White House to revoke the Presidential Medal of Freedom for Cosby. There is even a online petition pending on the White House’s website. But it doesn’t look like it will be revoked.

That medal was given to Cosby by President George W. Bush back in 2002, citing his long career and his work on behalf of education.

Ironically, Cosby spoke out in support of Obama back in 2012 when he addressed some of Obama’s broken promises on an episode of CNN’s “The Situation Room”.
