First off, I’d like to say, in Jerry Sandusky‘s interview with Bob Costas, he had the most “R. Kelly” moment since R. Kelly. Now if you’re not sure what I mean, I’ll be more than happy to explain it to you.
In case you missed it, Costas interviewed Sandusky during an airing of NBC‘s “Rock Center with Brian Williams” on Monday night. In an effort to not look like the Devil incarnate, Sandusky’s goal was to publicly refute the allegations against him. Instead, he gave some of the worst possible answers for a man trying to prove his “innocence.”
Now before I get into Sandusky, I want to explain the correlation with R. Kelly. Right after his trial concluded for “sex with a minor” and “child pornography,” Kelly did an interview with Touré on BET. Touré proceeded to ask him whether or not he liked teenage girls. Now if you’re trying to maintain your innocence, the only logical thing on Earth to say is “no.” But nooooo, that’s not what R. Kelly said. Instead, he asked the question, “when you say teenage, how old are we talking?” What?! To this day, that has to be the WORST answer in the history of mankind. This answer, coupled with the sex tape we all know featured him, proved his guilt regardless of what the courts ruled.
Jerry Sandusky must be from the same planet as Kelly, because during his interview with Costas, he gave a similarly terrible answer. While he maintained his innocence, when Costas asked him whether or not he was sexually attracted to boys, Sandusky gave a mind-numbing answer. Instead of simply saying “no” or “absolutely not,” Sandusky proceeds to tell Costas that he “enjoys young people” and “[loves] to be around them.” While that answer might not be as bad coming from anyone else, when you’re accused of raping boys over numerous years, this is the LAST thing you need to be saying. To compound the issue, Sandusky then admit that he has showered with boys after workouts, hugged them and “touched their legs without intent of sexual contact.” While these statements won’t necessarily convict him in a court of law, in the court of public opinion, his guilt is written in stone.
In the end, what the fuck is his lawyer doing? How can he allow his client to speak and give such baffling answers? Oh, I know why, because he got a 17-year-old girl pregnant when he was 49-years-old. Joe Amendola and Sandusky are made for each other. I swear, this story gets worse day by day. All I can do is shake my head.
