Former MSNBC Guest Claims Chris Matthews Was ‘Gross And Inappropriate’ With Her

Chris Matthews of MSNBC is having a rough month.

He had complaints from at least two campaigns for 2020 Democrats for saying insulting things on the air and now this.

A former guest complains that he was inappropriate with her. Oof.

In a column for GQ, Bassett said Matthew’s conduct “undermined my ability to do my job well.”

Bassett’s claims came after she published an op-ed describing inappropriate comments from an unnamed broadcast journalist. That journalist was Matthews, Bassett said, but she was afraid to publicly accuse him at the time.

“In 2017, I wrote about a cable news host being gross and inappropriate with me. I was afraid to name him at the time,” she tweeted on Friday. “I’m not anymore; it was Chris Matthews! And his sexist exchange with [Sen. Elizabeth] Warren this week inspired me to revisit those moments and name him.”

She is saying this publicly on Twitter, too:

Things are not going well for him.

He was even left out of coverage of the South Carolina primary.

Is it time for him to retire?
