Bill Cosby appeared on Good Morning America this morning to talk about his campaign to improve education in Alabama. He ended up talking a whole lot of nonsense after ABC News’ Linsey Davis asked him what he would say to child who asks him about the numerous women who have accused him of sexual assault.
I am prepared to tell this young person the truth about life. I’m not sure that they will come like that. I think that many of them say, well, “You’re a hypocrite. You say one thing, you say the other.” My point is, okay, listen to me carefully. I’m telling you where the road is out. I’m telling you where, as you’re driving, you’re gonna go into water, and it looks like it might only be three inches deep, but you and your car are gonna go down. Now you wanna go here? Or you wanna be concerned about who’s giving you the message?
In trying to avoid actually talking about the allegations against him, Cosby struggled to put a coherent thought together. When Davis asked him if he was concerned the allegations would overshadow his message to improve education, he said:
I’ve been in this business 52 years. I’ve never seen anything like this. And reality is the situation. And I, I can’t speak.
He later added that he still has good ideas for TV programs.
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.
More than 40 women have accused Cosby of sexual assault.
