CNN's Don Lemon Gives Bill Cosby's Accuser Advice on How She Could Have Prevented Her Rape

CNN correspondent Don Lemon did an interview with one of the Bill Cosby victims Joan Tarshis, where he implied she could have avoided her alleged rape.

“Because I know some of you — and you said this last night, that he — you lied to him and said, ‘I have an infection, and if you rape me, or if you do — if you have intercourse with me, then you will probably get it and give it to your wife.’” the 48-year-old reporter asked Joan on the show. “You — you know, there are ways not to perform oral sex if you didn’t want to do it.”

Lemon: “Can I ask you this, because — and please, I don’t mean to be crude, OK?”

Tarshis: “Yeah.”

Lemon: “Because I know some of you — and you said this last night, that he — you lied to him and said, ‘I have an infection, and if you rape me, or if you do — if you have intercourse with me, then you will probably get it and give it to your wife.’”

Tarshis: “Right.”

Lemon: “And you said he made you perform oral sex.”

Tarshis: “Right.”

Lemon: “You — you know, there are ways not to perform oral sex if you didn’t want to do it.”

Tarshis: “Oh. Um, I was kind of stoned at the time, and quite honestly, that didn’t even enter my mind. Now I wish it would have.”

Lemon: “Right. Meaning the using of the teeth, right?”

Tarshis: “Yes, that’s what I’m thinking you’re — ”

Lemon: “As a weapon.”

Tarshis: “Yeah, I didn’t even think of it.”

Lemon: “Biting. So, um — ”

Tarshis: “Ouch.”

Lemon: “Yes. I had to ask. I mean, it is, yeah.”

Tarshis: “Yes. No, it didn’t cross my mind.”

    This might not go over well, but “stoned” or not, in a case of rape one would think to, ohm, use her teeth if being forced into oral sex. One tries to extract themselves by any means necessary. She seemed to own no fear of him either.

    Is there a reason all this is coming out now?

    Well when is CNN gonna fire him ? If this was fox all hell would break loose so FIRE HIM CNN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • FormerLamark

    Yeah, because a raper will care if the victim has an infection or not when he wants to rape…and if the raper is single or has already an infection? Raping is generally not about the sex first of all but the power and violence.
