Bill Clinton and Bill Cosby are the most famous Bills in America, and probably the world over. Both are famous and both are respected in their fields. They also seem to share a darker side—both have been accused of rape. These accusations have tainted both men’s reputations, but only one seems to be suffering for it.
Clinton’s scandals have been doggedly following him for decades, and the allegations continue piling up, with the latest coming from his close associations with Mr. Epstein, owner of Orgy Island. As a former president and now with his wife as the nominee, the limelight is on him. So you would expect him to be excoriated for his activities. Yet somehow the media seems to protect him at every turn and many Americans turn a blind eye.
Events in the U.S. and around the globe, however, have driven Bill Cosby’s name out of the headlines. The 79-year-old comedian, once dubbed “America’s Dad,” has been plagued by multiple sexual assault charges that refused to go away.
Many fear that given his age, not to mention his great wealth, Cosby will be spared any serious repercussions for these offences if found guilty. Some sources are now saying, however, that the famous funny man is already in a different kind of prison.
Emily Smith, the “Page Six” gossip columnist for the New York Post, reports:
The disgraced comedian once known as “America’s Dad” is now confined to his Pennsylvania home with only his incomprehensibly loyal wife, Camille, at his side.
The source close to Cosby told us, “His alleged victims may take some solace in the fact that he’s in his own personal hell. He has been suffering from a degenerative eye disease and is completely blind . . . All his Hollywood friends have turned their backs on him. (…)
A judge this month ruled that Cosby will stand trial on sexual assault charges, at a date yet to be determined. Cosby faces three counts of felony aggravated indecent assault from a 2004 case involving Andrea Constand, an employee at his alma mater, Temple University. She was the first of more than 50 women who’ve accused Cosby of sexual misconduct.
As a particularly sordid detail, Smith goes on to report that Cosby is suing Constand – not for libel and slander in destroying his reputation, but for “allegedly breaching a confidentiality agreement she signed with him after he settled with her out of court in 2006.”
Any man who mistreats or abuses women should pay for their despicable actions. In this case it seems only one Bill is getting what is coming to him.
