WASHINGTON -- Entertainer Bill Cosby defended President Obama on Sunday, saying that his critics do not acknowledge the obstacles he has faced in office.
“I'm disappointed at people who don't look at the woes and the trouble given to this man,” Cosby told CNN’s Candy Crowley, referring to allies on the left who have complained about the administration. “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.”
The actor and comedian said he feels sometimes that opponents want to make Obama’s job like “the one that Sisyphus had.”
"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," he said. "They wanted to get him."
