    Rape-rape, indeed. Maybe she should learn the facts before taking a position on TV about an issue?

    ======

    “I gotta say, all of the information that’s out there kinda points to ‘guilt’,” Whoopi said this morning when guest/ABC News chief legal analyst Dan Abrams came on her show to explain this thing called “statute of limitations” in rape cases.

    Her aggressive remarks, even as a news emerged Cosby had acknowledged obtaining Quaaludes to give to women with whom he wanted to have sex, inspired HBO’s John Oliver hosted Last Week Tonight to do a damning segment entirely devoted to Whoopi, and how she will defend “anything”; it included her Cosby comments as well as defenses of Roman Polanski and Ray Rice.

    “I have been taking a lot of heat for various reasons,” Whoopi acknowledged this morning, welcoming Abrams to The View “to help me understand a lot of what’s going on” in re Cosby.

    Abrams explained patiently that, as a legal matter, the statute of limitations has expired on both civil and criminal suits against Cosby that might have been filed by the growing list of accusers. “Now, effectively, nothing can be done” in courts, he said, calling it a “legal technicality.”

    “That’s a shock to me,” Whoopi said, adding, “You’re saying all that is left to these women is the court of public opinion.”

    Abrams noted the women who have come forward “together…make a much more compelling case”, adding, “It is impossible to ignore the consistency of these stories” and that, “as practical matter, the remedy against Bill Cosby is the court of public opinion. It’s the pressure; it’s the pulling of his TV shows, it’s the ridicule.”

    Whoopi, navigating carefully, suggested she’s not so keen on the show pulling because it affects other actors “and some of them may not be able to make a living.” But, she quickly added, addressing viewers, “PLEASE don’t’ take this the wrong way. I’m thinking about the other actors.”

    As of today, Whoopi’s position is this: “There is no recourse for these women except what they are doing. If this is to be tried in the court of public opinion I gotta say, all of the information that’s out there kinda points to guilt. Now, again, I always thought they would have the opportunity to take him to court, but [Abrams is] saying that’s not true.”

    “You got a serial rapist, he’s been on the streets for 30 years,” Whoopi said. “I thought, ‘Here’s all the information. Take his ass to jail.’ I find out from you that that’s not possible…So, I can’t say any more ‘innocent until proven guilty’.”

    Addressing Cosby, Whoopi concluded, “It looks bad, Bill. Either speak up or shut up, cause people know now there’s a lot more out there than they thought.”

    She just finds out now, from Dan Abrams mind you, that Bill can't be prosecuted. Lying cunt.
    Dan Abrams looks emaciated and has gigantic fake Al Sharpton looking teeth now.

    She finally heard that Cosby believes black people should take responsibility for their own lives and stop blaming white people for all black America's problems.

    Whoopi don't play that shit, yo!
