DONALD TRUMP WEIGHS IN ON BILL COSBY
Donald Trump has shared his thoughts on the Bill Cosby’s current situation.
Trump attended an event in New York City last week and spoke to E! News to share his opinion on Bill Cosby’s recent bad press stemming from the women coming forward claiming he sexually assaulted them.
The Celebrity Apprentice host said, “Well, I think it’s very sad and frankly I don’t think he’s handling it well. He should say something because he’s being accused of terrible things — and to have absolutely no comment, I think, he’s getting very bad advice from a PR standpoint, and he should do it differently. He’s not doing a good job of handling it.”
Bill and Donald previously had beef back in 2011 when the comedian appeared on the Today show saying that Trump was “full of it” and should “run for president or shut up.”
Despite his recent negative publicity, Bill has been receiving standing ovations during appearances in Philadelphia, Florida, and the Bahamas.
Cosby’s lawyer released another statement late last week saying, “The new, never-before-heard claims from women who have come forward in the past two weeks with unsubstantiated, fantastical stories about things they say occurred 30, 40 or even 50 years ago have escalated past the point of absurdity. These brand new claims about alleged decades-old events are becoming increasingly ridiculous, and it is completely illogical that so many people would have said nothing, done nothing and made no reports to law enforcement or asserted civil claims if they thought they had been assaulted over a span of so many years. Lawsuits are filed against people in the public eye every day. There has never been a shortage of lawyers willing to represent people with claims against rich, powerful men, so it makes no sense that not one of these new women who just came forward for the first time now ever asserted a legal claim back at the time they alleged they had been sexually assaulted. This situation is an unprecedented example of the media’s breakneck rush to run stories without any corroboration or adherence to traditional journalistic standards…It is long past time for this media vilification of Mr. Cosby to stop.”
