Bill Cosby Gets the Trial America Craves on Inside Amy Schumer

“Did anyone feel raped by that?,” Schumer asked the jury, after showing them a clip from The Cosby Show. “How about drugged? No? Me neither. I felt comforted by a familiar father figure. Nostalgia. Laughter. Not guilty.” Logic: Who needs it?! Certainly not Bill Cosby.

Her closing argument, though, is positively artful: “If convicted, the next time you put on a rerun of The Cosby Show, you may wince a little. And none of us deserve that. We deserve to dance like no one’s watching, and watch like no one’s raping.”
