Chris Matthews reportedly joked about slipping a ‘Bill Cosby pill’ into Hillary Clinton’s drink before an interview last year. Imagine the uproar if someone from FOX News had said this.
The Hill reports:
Chris Matthews joked about putting ‘Bill Cosby pill’ in Hillary Clinton’s water before interview
MSNBC host Chris Matthews once joked about giving Hillary Clinton a “Bill Cosby pill” before a 2016 interview, according to newly released video.
New York Magazine’s The Cut published the video Friday, showing Matthews telling jokes about Clinton before an interview in Iowa during the 2016 Democratic primary.
“Can I have some of the queen’s waters? Precious waters?” Matthews says.
“Where’s that Bill Cosby pill I brought with me?” he adds, laughing.
In a statement to The Cut, Matthews apologized for the video, saying it was a “terrible comment.”
“This was a terrible comment I made in poor taste during the height of the Bill Cosby headlines,” Matthews told the publication. “I realize that’s no excuse. I deeply regret it and I’m sorry.”
Last month, The Daily Caller reported that a former MSNBC employee who accused Matthews of sexual harassment in 1999 was given a separation payment by the network.
Chris Matthews is a train wreck. He would be nowhere if MSNBC didn’t exist.
