Absolutely no surprise here:


Cosby's lawyers have gone on the attack today in the courtroom trying to attack the credibility of victims:

In 1996, in a bungalow at the Hotel Bel-Air in Los Angeles, Ms. Johnson said, Mr. Cosby talked her into taking a pill that made her feel as if she was “underwater.” She awoke a while later, she said, lying on the bed, partly undressed, with Mr. Cosby behind her; she had lotion on her hand and “he made me touch his penis.”

“My dress was pulled up from the bottom, and it was pulled down from the top,” she said. “My breasts were out. I felt naked.”

Mr. Cosby denies the assault allegations.

The trial in the Montgomery County Courthouse in Norristown, Pa., marks a long-awaited test of the kind of accusations dozens of women have leveled in recent years against Mr. Cosby, now 79, severely undermining the image he built over more than half a century in show business. Rarely has a person so well known faced such a sharp reversal in reputation, or such serious criminal charges —– three counts of aggravated indecent assault, each punishable by up to 10 years in prison.

If he held any other job, Donald Trump would be fired by now:
