MELBOURNE, Fla. (AP) — As Bill Cosby's standup tour crumbled with cancellations, the embattled entertainer joked about his usual subjects of family, wives and childhood Friday to a cheering audience that greeted him with a standing ovation as he took the stage and another when he finished.
NEW YORK (AP) — Hillary Rodham Clinton voiced support Friday for President Barack Obama's use of executive actions to protect about 5 million immigrants from deportation, setting up a sharp contrast with Republicans on an issue that could play a leading role in the next presidential campaign.
The comments came as Cosby suffered a new setback when a live performance in Las Vegas was canceled, just days after the plug was pulled on two TV projects. The Treasure Island casino in the Nevada gambling hub scratched a show next weekend by the comic, a spokeswoman said. The actor, known for playing a doting father on the popular "Cosby Show" in the 1980s and 1990s, has come under fire in recent weeks over claims made by several women.
