— Another person has come forward accusing Bill Cosby of sexual assault, as Tamara Green, 66, is the fifth person to now come forward accusing Cosby of sexual assault.
“I didn’t know how far he was going to take it, he had drugged me, I thought he could do anything, I thought he could kill me,” Green told Mail Online.
“Is there a question that the two of you have that you could share to me about this whole situation, when is the legal system going to drop the hammer on this pervert? Is it the statutes of limitations?” Dennis asked.
“They are reluctant to press charges,” Callahan replied. “They were reluctant 10 or 15 years ago. … You think the people 10 or 15 years ago are going to step forward and say, ‘arrest that man?'”
— The hosts continued yesterday’s discussion of CNN host Don Lemon’s interview with another one of the Bill Cosby sexual assault accusers, Joan Tarshis, who said she was forced to perform oral sex on Cosby. Lemon said there could’ve been a way for her to not perform the act, using her teeth as a ‘weapon.’
“Why didn’t she respond and say, ‘you stupid fool, he would have beaten me … and then drugged me and killed me,'” Callahan said.
— On Nov. 6, Cosby gave a video interview with the Associated Press and was asked about the accusations. Cosby never really responded and then following the interview asked the reporter to “scuttle” the segment about the rape allegations, as he believed the interview had ended. The AP has released the video.
“What a manipulative piece of garbage,” Dennis said.
“He’s just a monster,” Callahan replied.
— Michael Phelps‘ girlfriend Taylor Lianne Chandler revealed she was born a boy and was named David Roy Fitch. She was born with both sets of reproductive organs and she identified as a boy until her teenage years.
Phelps is currently in currently in rehab, as well as serving a six-month suspension from USA Swimming after his second DUI in late September. She said she told Phelps via email and he’s yet to respond.
“Well, I’d rather be Phelps than Cosby today, I’ll say that,” Dennis said.
