WATCH: Wilmore Rips Bill Cosby's New Sleazy Defense Strategy
Larry Wilmore righteously continued piling on Bill Cosby Monday night by taking his perverse defense strategy to task.
Cosby has recently hired high-powered attorney Monique Pressley to go on the PR offensive claiming that Cosby's actions were justified because the use of "drugs during sex as a widely accepted practice four decades ago". But as Wilmore points out, the act of rape was never widely accepted since Cosby wasn't also using drugs.
Pressley, for her part, is currently floating the ol' "out of context" argument to explain away recent revelations that Cosby admitted in 2006 to "drugging women for the purposes of sex".
"There are a thousand-plus pages that are available of Mr. Cosby in his own words, and what we're seeing so far are headlines that are grabbing one excerpt or two and misinterpreting them", she insisted. What she can't account for, as the Nightly Show host notes, is the dozens of victims who all tell virtually the same story over and over again.
