When Donald Trump advised Bill Cosby to “say something” about his rape allegations “because he [Cosby] is being accused of terrible things,” the Republican presidential candidate probably didn’t foresee his very own repulsive actions coming to light.

Back in 2014, when asked by E! News what he thought of Cosby’s sexual abuse scandal, Trump explained that the comedian’s silence was making matters worse. “And to have absolutely no comment ― I think he’s getting very bad advice from a PR standpoint,” Trump said.

He added, “And he should do it differently. He’s not doing a very good job of handling it.”

In 2014, Cosby’s career and reputation were completely tarnished and washed down the drain when dozens of women began accusing the comedian of sexual assault (the number ultimately reached an alleged 50).

Ironically, less than two years after advising Cosby to speak out, Trump was forced to defend himself after admitting to groping and kissing women without consent.

Earlier this month, The Washington Post released a video from 2005 of the politician having a conversation with former Access Hollywood host Billy Bush, saying, “I don’t even wait. And when you’re a star, they let you do it, you can do anything … grab them by the pu$$y.”

Trump went on to “apologize” for the comments and referred to the recording as “locker room talk.”

Sure, the politician took the advice he gave Cosby and actually commented on the scandal — but then again, he is running for the Oval Office.

We wonder, however, if Trump wasn’t trying to become the nation’s next POTUS, would his “locker room talk” excuse be better than keeping quiet on misconduct of this caliber?

Cocktails & Coins! Inside Aisha Tyler’s Wild Life After Divorce & Departure From ‘The Talk’

Published

Aisha Tyler went through a few MAJOR life changes over the past two years and now, the actress is back on top living life to the fullest.

In 2016, Tyler’s college love and husband of 20 years, Jeff Tietjens, filed for divorce from the actress. As if that weren’t an emotional challenge to overcome, Tyler was then ordered to pay Tietjens $31,250 a month in spousal support for the next four years, plus a lump sum of $500k.

Following the emotional split, Tyler’s career then took a big turn when she walked away from CBS’s The Talk. Just eight months ago, the actress left the show to pursue other passions. “I also have three other series (Criminal Minds, hosting Whose Line Is It Anyway? and voicing a character on Archer),” the actress said during the big announcement. “People always go, ‘How do you do all that?’ And I don’t always have an answer.”

While it might sound like Tyler’s woes and 360 of a life might seem completely damaging, it all turned for the better. “The unknown can be very compelling and can be interesting. Instead of thinking about it as change, think about it as dynamism,” she told HipHollywood during the screening of Dwyane Wade’s, Shot in the Dark. 

She explained, “You can’t stay the same, your life can’t stay the same. Staying the same is staying in place and staying in place is dying slowly. For me, I always reminded myself I’m not always going to feel this way, it’s not always going to be this tuff.”

“You cannot get through this experience on this planet without a little bit of pain and you need to know that and see that it’s temporary,” Aisha said. “My life is so interesting now and it wouldn’t have been without going through the stuff that I’ve been through. It’s been good for me; all this change.”

The actress is not only the star of some major network shows, but she also is about to launch her new cocktail line, Courage and Stone. “It’s been a really really exciting process,” she told us. “It really came out of my love of cocktails, my love of going to great bars and then going home and being like ‘I don’t know how to do all this.'”

Tyler then admitted that she was a whiskey girl at heart and that when she left the Talk “Julie Chen put me in a whiskey of the month club. She she’s doubled my collection in the last couple of months.”

Set to releae late spring early summer 2018.
