In an interview with Linsey Davis this morning on Good Morning America, Bill Cosby responded to questions about the sexual assault allegations that have been made against him over the past few months. Cosby’s responses were far from artful dodges, and frequently bordered on incoherent. “Listen to me carefully. I’m telling you where the road is out,” he told Davis. “Now, you wanna go here, or you wanna be concerned about who’s giving you the message?” I’m listening carefully, Bill, but I’m not understanding any of it.
When asked whether or not the allegations would “overshadow” his work “to help bring awareness about the state of underfunded schools near Selma,” he spoke about being unable to speak.
“I have been in this business 52 years and—I will—I’ve never seen anything like this. Reality is the situation, and I can’t speak.
When asked what he hoped his legacy would be, Cosby responded:
“I really know about what I’m going to do tomorrow. I have a ton of ideas to put on television about people and their love for each other.”
I’m not sure what he meant by that, but I’m nearly certain he won’t get his wish.
