The controversy surrounding Bill Cosby continues to spiral into absolute f-ckery -- most recently, we've learned that in a 2005 deposition, he admitted to obtaining Quaaludes so he could give them to women he wanted to sleep with, adding that he even drugged (at least) one. Today (June 15), at a press conference, President Obama was asked about Cosby and if, in light of the controversy surrounding him, his Medal of Freedom would be revoked. Here's what the President had to say:
"There's no precedent for revoking a medal," President Obama said, "We don't have that mechanism."
"I'll say this: if you give a woman -- or a man, for that matter -- without his or her knowledge a drug and then have sex with that person without consent, that's rape. And I think this country -- any civilized country -- should have no tolerance for rape," The President said.
Bill Cosby received the medal in 2002. Other recipients include women's rights activist Gloria Steinem and media mogul Oprah Winfrey.
