Bill Cosby Goes Blind To Gain Sympathy
A new story published by Daily Mail suggests that comedian and actor, Bill Cosby, may be pretending to be blind just to gain the judge’s sympathy.
Disgraced comedian Bill Cosby is seen here walking unaided down the steep steps of a private jet – the same day a court heard he was blind.
Cosby was caught on film after landing in Massachusetts – where he is holed up in a 21-acre private compound – on Tuesday, the same day he appeared in a Pennsylvania court for a pre-trial hearing on a rape charge.
And despite the judge in that hearing acknowledging that Cosby, 79, is blind, he seemed to require little help – not even his cane – stepping down from the aircraft.
Cosby had arrived in the Montgomery County Courthouse earlier that day looking considerably more vulnerable, walking arm-in-arm with spokesman Andrew Wyatt.
He was there for a hearing ahead of his June 2017 trial, which sees him accused of drugging and raping Temple University employee Andrea Constand in 2004.
He also had his brown wooden cane stretched out in front of him, seemingly to detect objects in his path.
But his attitude in these pictures seems a world away: He can be seen laughing with his cane and coat hooked over his arm as he descends the steep metal steps.
Two air crew are on hand – one at the bottom of the steps and the other at the top – but Cosby seems to need neither man’s help.
From the photos, the foremost comedian is seen getting down an aircraft in Massachusetts with little help and even sharing a joke with an attendant. But his disposition changed as he appeared in a Montgomery County Courthouse for a pre-trial hearing on rape charges; he walked with a cane and was guided in by his spokesman Andrew Wyatt.
Daily Mail adds that Judge Steven O’Neill accepted the claims that the 79-year-old Cosby has been blind for months and he offered Cosby the special accommodations he needs.
