President Obama was just asked about the allegations surrounding Bill Cosby — and without directly calling him a rapist, came awfully close.  “If you give a woman … or a man for that matter … 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.” Obama was asked if he would revoke Cosby’s Presidential Medal of Freedom — which he received in 2002 — Obama said there was no precedent for that … adding, “We don’t have a mechanism.” The comment insinuates the White House has at least looked into the matter.  Obama said as a policy, he doesn’t like to comment about specifics regarding cases where there might still be criminal or civil issues involved.
