Bill Cosby Performs, Jokes About Rape Accusations

In 2017, Bill Cosby stood trial for the 2004 sexual assault of Andrea Constand. Ultimately, the Cosby jury deadlocked and the judge declared a mistrial.

In a few months, Bill Cosby will face his retrial. We guess that we can hope that, this time, justice will be served.

But … you remember how Bill Cosby threatened to perform again? He’s made good on that promise with a show, just last night.

With less notice than you’d expect, the ad for the show went up on Cosby’s Facebook page.

“Bill Cosby Returns tot he stage for a special performance to honor jazz great Tony Williams.”

Believe it or not, folks, after the dozens of rapes that he’s accused of committing, there are still folks who follow him on social media. And they’re fans.

“Actor & Comedian Bill Cosby returns to the stage for a special performance honoring Jazz Great Tony Williams on Monday, January 22, 2018 at LaRose Jazz Club located 5531 Germantown Avenue, Philadelphia, PA. This event is open to the public and tickets can be purchased at the door.”

As for what the appearance is all about:

“Bill Cosby will honor his fans with a historic performance with the Tony Williams Jazz Quartet and he will be performing a special comedy concert that will culminate the evening.”

At the actual show last night, which was extremely last-minute in nature, Bill Cosby didn’t shy away from his recent disgrace.

He joked about how he “used to be a comedian.”

He admitted that he gets a very different reaction when he goes places than he used to.

Worst of all, he joked about his alleged sexual assaults, saying: “There’s a perfectly good word called ‘stop’, Not ‘oh-oh-oh-oh-oh’.” A sickening line, particularly from a man who allegedly drugged his victims first.

(Plenty of women have trouble saying “stop” or “no” when they fear for their safety, but surely it would be next to impossible for someone who’s been drugged)

Afterwards, Bill Cosby was asked if he thinks that his retrial will go differently in the #MeToo era of people, you know, realizing that sexual assault is a real thing.

This was his facial expression:

He replied: “I don’t know.”

We can only hope that jurors are wiser than they were over the summer.

Now, you might be asking yourself who would go to such an event.

You’d think that all but the most aggressive misogynists would give up trying to proclaim Bill Cosby’s “innocence” after his accusers passed two dozen. Or three dozen.

(His accusers now number at approximately 60. He doesn’t have the most accusers, but it’s not a competition and many would question the agenda of someone who disbelieves sixty women in favor of the guy from their childhood Jell-O commercials)

After the deadlocked jury, Bill Cosby’s retrial date was set for this fall.

In September, it was pushed back to April 2018.

Since then, there has been a lot more conversation about sexual assault, victim-blaming, and why women remain silent for years when their careers, families, or even lives may be on the line.

Those who want justice for the approximately five dozen women who accuse Bill Cosby of sexual assault are hopeful that the jurors will keep in mind the realities of sex crimes.

Most of those women, due to statute of limitations laws that many feel are harmful, can’t bring Cosby to trial. But Andrea Constand can.

Both sides should agree that it’s good that the prosecutor vowed to try Cosby again.

Those who believe Andrea Constand (and the 59 others) surely want a guilty verdict. Those who believe Cosby want him cleared in court.

Honestly, both sides should also agree that going on stage for performances while he is so reviled and has yet to even be acquitted … is in poor taste.

Especially if he’s going to joke about his alleged sexual assaults.

But some wonder if this is part of one last hurrah. If he might be anticipating a conviction, and wanted to go on stage a couple of times before that happens.

Eminem DESTROYS Donald Trump, Jokes About Murdering Ivanka on New Album!

Eminem has made it abundantly clear that he’s not a big fan of our current president.

(And seriously, how heartbreaking is it that we still have to refer to Donald Trump as “our current president”?)

He slammed Trump in a song he released in 2015, and in another he released in 2015, but his harshest criticism came in October when he shared a little freestyle at the BET Hip Hop Awards.

He touched on the controversy surrounding the professional athletes that have chosen to kneel during the national anthem before games as a form of protest and Trump’s ridiculous reaction to them.

“Now, if you’re a black athlete, you’re a spoiled little brat for trying to use your platform or your stature to try to give those a voice who don’t have one,” he rapped.

“He gets an enormous reaction when he attacks the NFL, so we focus on that instead of talking Puerto Rico or gun reform for Nevada. All these horrible tragedies and he’s bored and would rather cause a Twitterstorm with the Packers.”

Then, to his massive fan base, he stated “Any fan of mine who’s a supporter of his, I’m drawing a line in the sane. You’re either for or against, and if you can’t decide who you like more and you’re split on who you stand beside, I’ll do it for you with this.”

He then flipped off the camera, making it clear that he’s not interested in sharing fans with Trump.

It was all pretty intense, right?

But it looks like he was saving even more vitriol for his new album.

Eminem released the album, titled Revival, yesterday, and he dedicated an entire song to Trump. The song is called “Like Home,” and it features vocals by Alicia Keys.

He kicked off the very first verse with “Someone get this Aryan a sheet, time to bury him, so tell him to prepare to get impeached. Everybody on your feet.”‘

“This chump barely even sleeps, all he does is watch Fox News like a parrot and repeats while he looks like a canary with a beak.”

“Why you think he banned transgenders from the military with a tweet?” he asked. “He’s trying to divide us. The sh-t’s like a cult, but like Johnny he’ll only unite us. ‘Cause nothing inside drives us like this fight does.”

He admitted that “our spirits’ crushed” and it’s “hard to deal” with things right now, “but there’s always tomorrow still.”

“If we start from the scratch like a scab, get the scars to heal and band together for Charlottesville, and for Heather [Heyer, the woman killed in Charlottesville], fallen heroes.”

In the second verse though, he really went in on Trump:

Didn’t wanna piss your base off, did ya? / Can’t denounce the Klan, ‘cause they play golf with ya

You stay on Twitter, way to get your hate off / Nazi, I do not see a way y’all differ

And all you got are race cards / Better get the swastika with your name carved in it / Should be your trademark, ‘cause hate’s all you played off / And you just lick the plate off

So I guess it pays to feed off of chaos / So basically, you’re Adolf Hitler / But you ain’t ruining our country, punk / Or taking our pride from us, you won’t define us

‘Cause like a dictionary, things are looking up / So much, got a sprained beck, know we would rise up against this train wreck and take a stand

In the bridge, Alicia Keys sings “I won’t give up on my home, that so many died for, you already know that I won’t give up.”

It’s actually pretty emotional.

It’s also not the only time he mentions a Trump on the album — on a track called “Frame,” he gets a little less realistic and a lot, lot darker.

The song is all about murder and just awful, violent crimes — the point is that just because he says terrible things in his songs doesn’t mean he actually does them. It really is pretty dark.

In the second verse, he raps “Woke up, it was dawn, musta knew something was wrong. Think I’m becoming a monster ‘cause of the drugs that I’m on. Donald Duck’s on as the Tonka Trunk in the yard.”

“But dog, how the f-ck is Ivanka Trump in the trunk of my car? Gotta get to the bottom of it to try to solve it. Must go above and beyond, ‘cause it’s incumbent upon me, ‘cause I feel somewhat responsible for the dumb little blonde.”

So yes, it seems pretty safe to say that he has a whole, whole lot of anger for this entire family.

Do you think Eminem is going too far with these new songs?

Larry David: SLAMMED for Doing Holocaust Jokes on Saturday Night Live!

So last night, Larry David hosted Saturday Night Live.

It should have been a wonderful opportunity for some solid Bernie Sanders sketches, and he did do a Bernie impersonation at one point, but that’s not what people are talking about.

Nope, instead people are focusing on his opening monologue.

Specifically the segment during the monologue in which he made a few Holocaust jokes.

He kicks off the bit by saying that he’s “always been obsessed with women,” and “I’ve often wondered, if I’d grown up in Poland when Hitler came to power and was sent to a concentration camp, would I still be checking out women in the camp?”

The audience started laughing nervously, and he answered his own question with “I think I would.”

“The problem is,” he continued, “there are no good opening lines in a concentration camp.”

“How’s it going?” he asked an imaginary women in this wacky scenario. “They treating you OK? You know, if we ever get out of here, I’d love to take you out for some latkes. You like latkes?”

When the line didn’t land — for the audience, too, but mostly for that imaginary lady — he said “What, what’d I say? Is it me, or is it the whole thing?”

From there, Larry wrapped up the monologue and went into the typical “We got a great show tonight …” SNL thing.

But, thanks to the internet, that certainly would not be the last we heard of those jokes.

“I’m not a Jew,” one person tweeted, “but I’m low-key offended by Larry David’s holocaust jokes on #SNL. Not cool.”

“I can’t believe they did jokes about a concentration camp I just can’t believe what I just saw it will never be okay to do,” another wrote.

Some people used a popular hashtag, #ReallyMakesMeCringe, to express their feelings about the monologue, for example “#ReallyMakesMeCringe when we have people denying the holocaust & Larry David opens the door for them to think it’s fine to joke about.”

There were a lot of photos shared of actual women in concentration camps to really drive home the point that the joke was offensive.

“Comedy does NOT mean everything can be funny,” someone stated. “Always wrong to joke about the Holocaust, even if you’re Jewish.”

Which is another thing — Larry is Jewish himself, so many people believe that he had the right to make those jokes.

“Don’t get why non-Jews think their opinions matter on whether or not Larry David is allowed to reference the holocaust in his jokes,” one such person tweeted.

Another explained that “If anyone is upset with Larry David’s holocaust jokes on SNL they are likely not Jewish. Comedy can help people deal with tragedy.”

So was he offensive, or does he have the right to make jokes like this?

Does anyone have the right to make jokes like this?

Snoop Dogg Jokes About Death of Trump, Incurs Ire of #MAGA Crowd

Well, it’s November, which means the season of familial discord is fast approaching.

This year has offered plenty of potential topics of conversation that are sure to trigger a third coronary event for your Uncle Lou.

So you probably don’t need any help infuriating your more conservative relatives, but just in case you need some extra help, Snoop D-O-double-G is here to lend a hand:

That’s the cover of Snoop’s forthcoming album Make America Crip Again.

As you can see, the photo isn’t exactly subtle in its anti-Trump sentiment.

Paying homage to Ice Cube’s 1991 album Death Certificate, Snoop is seen sipping from a Crip-blue Solo cup glaring down at the corpse of the Donald.

It’s not the rapper’s first political controversy this year, as back in March, a video in which Snoop pretends to assassinate Trump made major waves on social media.

Needless to say, lots of folks on Twitter have been thoroughly butthurt by Snoop’s brand of satire, but most of them have Pepe the Frog avatars, and thus, their opinions aren’t to be taken seriously.

“Snoop Dogg’s career is running on fumes, hence the need to jump on the refuge of the talentless – the Trump Derangement Syndrome bandwagon,” one snowflake said about the platinum-selling music legend who currently hosts two television shows.

“HOW DOES THIS PRICK get away with this crap?” tweeted a guy who we probably don’t need to tell you has a photo of a very angry-looking bald eagle as his profile pic.

For his part, Snoop has yet to sound off on the controversy.

And thankfully, against all odds, the president hasn’t tweeted about either.

Of course, Trump has a lot on his plate these days, so he might be a bit distracted at the moment.

Hey, there’s a fun game!

Test your friend’s prejudice levels by showing them photos of Snoop and Trump and asking them to guess which one is worried about going to prison because all his friends are getting indicted.

Lob that one at Uncle Lou over pumpkin pie, but make sure you’ve got a defibrillator handy!

Better yet, put your version of the poll on social media and enjoy a few mild strokes of your own.

After all, Twitter is basically what would happen if you let the kids sit at the grownup table and got them loaded on gin and it turned out the kids were super racist.
