Yep, Bill Cosby is pretty much a psychopath

Last week the NYTimes ran the story of Cosby's 2005 testimony which said in part:
He said he obtained seven prescriptions for them over two to three years from a doctor in Los Angeles, ostensibly for a sore back but in reality to give to women. 
He admitted to giving young women quaaludes at that time “the same as a person would say have a drink,” he said, but not without their knowledge. 
Though he portrayed the drug-taking and sex as consensual, Mr. Cosby — when asked whether Ms. Serignese was in a position to consent to sexual intercourse after he gave her quaaludes in 1976 — said: “I don’t know.” 
Joseph Cammarata, a lawyer for Ms. Serignese and two other women who are suing Mr. Cosby for defamation, said of the deposition: “This information is important because it sheds light on the private practices of a man who holds himself out as a public moralist.”
This week New York Magazine provides a round-up of 35 women accusing Cosby of sexually harassing, molesting, drugging and raping them.

Of course there are still people defending Cosby, from Phylicia Rashad to random commenters on the NYMag story.

Amy Schumer rightly mocks them - the ending is hysterical and pointed.
