Donald Trump deflected from his own media troubles by laying into Bill Cosby in a WABC interview. Cosby makes an easy target for good reason. Trump could use some goodwill, so he spoke some common sense on a subject most people agree is worthy of derision.
Trump believes Cosby’s Presidential Medal of Freedom should be taken away. Barack Obama already said there was no precedent to revoke the medal (although Obama delivered verbal justice toward Cosby). Trump went on to say he never appreciated Cosby’s humor in the first place, and he thinks Cosby is certainly guilty:
“I’ve never been a fan of Bill Cosby. I’ve never liked him. I’ve known him; I’ve never liked him. I think he was a highly overrated guy — both in talent and in many other ways. And who would think that this would have happened?”
“All of a sudden, last week, with the court case, where it was unveiled that he actually did this horrible thing. So I don’t know. I’ve never been a fan. I think he’s guilty as hell. I mean, he’s looking guilty. And that last week’s event was very bad for him where they had the sealed documents unsealed.”
Cosby hasn’t been charged with a crime, but his own admissions point toward guilt of drugging women for sex. See, even Donald Trump can speak in a levelheaded manner on occasion. Hardly anyone believes in Donald Trump, but even fewer people believe in Bill Cosby.
