Obama Speaks On Bill Cosby Case, Defines Rape


During a press conference today, President Obama was asked about Bill Cosby. Although the question came off guard, he had some powerful words to share.

The first concern was revoking Bill Cosby’s “Presidential Medal Of Freedom” he was awarded in 2002. Many victims groups had signed petitions to get it revoked.

Obama wasn’t for revoking it though. He said “There’s no precedent for revoking a medal.” This didn’t sit well with victim groups who felt that it suggests society accepts his sexual behavior.

Obama did define rape he said “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 without consent, that’s rape. And I think this country, Amy civilized country, should have a zero tolerance for rape.”

We can only image what Bill Cosby’s  publicist is going through!

What do you guys think? Should he get his Medal revoked? Lets Chat!
