Cosby weighs in on President Obama's presidency

Legendary actor/comedian Bill Cosby talks about his support for President Obama in 2008 and now in 2012.

"I'm disappointed at people who don't look at the woes and the trouble given to this man. People blatantly speaking out against his color, wasting time, starting up new stories about whether or not he was born here, saying things that they can't prove. ... People want to make [his job] as difficult as the one that Sisyphus had. And then when you see that he made promises and said things and the people who were supposed to be working with him didn't. The people who were supposed to be working, even for another party, didn't care about the American people. They wanted to get him. When people make statements like "I hope he fails," you can't color that any other way except the way it's said."

Cosby on the Trayvon Martin killing

Legendary actor/comedian Bill Cosby talks to Candy about gun violence, and the Trayvon Martin case.

"I'm a person who believes that that gun, the gun, all around this United States, when a person has a gun, sometimes their mind clicks that this thing is - it will win arguments and straighten people out. And then in the wrong hands, in the wrong mind, it's death."

When asked if he saw it more as a gun issue than a race issue, Cosby said. "How are you going to solve a race issue when it becomes he-said-she-said or he said-he said? And the other question is what is solved by saying he is a racist, that's why he shot the boy? What solves that? ... It doesn't make any difference if he's a racist or not racist. If he is scared to death and not a racist, it's still a confrontational provoking of something."
