You would think Bill Cosby has nothing to say or would refuse to comment about everything that has been happening lately, but he just had his first interview in more than two years
According to Fox News the 79-year-old comedian, whose entire legacy has been completely tarnished, said he did not want to take the stand in his upcoming sexual assault trial. He allegedly also made suggestions that some of the accusations against him are motivated by racism.
He is not the only one who seems to think so either. Ensa Cosby, his daughter, is in full support of this and also released an audio statement in which she describes her father as a “visionary” and claims the allegations against him have been “one-sided”.
I strongly believe my father is innocent of the crimes alleged against him, and I believe that racism has played a big role in all aspects of this scandal,” she said in the audio statement.
This is very fitting since the jury selection for the Cosby trial is about to go down sometime next week.
Cosby reportedly said he did not anticipate he would take the stand at his trial, which is set to begin this summer.
“No, I do not,” he answered when asked by Smerconish if he thought he would take the stand on the unedited chat aired during The Michael Smerconish Program on the POTUS (Politics Of The United States).
When responding to the audio clips that were released by his daughters Esna and Erinn to a suggestion that the more than 50 women accusing him of drugging them, sexually assaulting them or both could be motivated, in part, by racism the disgraced 79-year-old responded by saying: “Could be. Could be.”
“I can’t say anything, but there are certain things that I look at, and I apply to the situation. There are so many tentacles. So many different – ‘nefarious’ is a great word. And I just truly believe that some of it may very well be that,” Cosby reportedly stated during the interview.
He did, however, also acknowledge, when prompted by Smerconish, that his accusers span all races. So we are not sure what Cosby is actually trying to say, but what he did say was: “It’s not all, not every. But I do think that there is some [racism].”
