Bill Cosby is trying to get judges to turn a blind eye to the rape allegations against him — by claiming to be blind!
In court documents filed in his defamation lawsuit against model Beverly Johnson, creepy Cosby whined that he’s he’s “legally and functionally blind.”
That came as no surprise to readers of The National ENQUIRER, though, who got the worldwide exclusive scoop back in November of 2011 about Cosby’s battle with a degenerative eye disease called keratoconus.
Now the 78-year-old — accused of being a serial knockout drug rapist who’s attacked up to 100 women over 43 years — is using the condition to defend his sick behavior!
Beverly, 63, has claimed she had to fend off Cosby after he drugged her in his Manhattan townhouse in the 1980s.
But according to his lawsuit: “Mr. Cosby has suffered from a degenerative eye condition for years … for over a year, [he] has been legally and functionally blind.”
Renowned New York City criminal defense attorney Murray Richman said Cosby is using the blind card to show he has a “disability that makes him physically incapable” of drugging and assaulting women.
Murray scoffed: “It’s a bulls–t defense. A jury isn’t going to buy it!”
