Uber-liberal MSNBC host Chris Matthews has a long history of foot-in-mouth disease.
Recall during the Democrat National Convention coverage some years ago, Matthews remarked that Barack Obama gives him a ‘thrill going up my leg’.
Now a clip has been leaked of a pre-cut of his 2016 interview with candidate Hillary Clinton in which he wondered aloud to his producers, “Where’s that ‘Bill Cosby pill’ I brought with me?”
The reference was in the midst of the Cosby rape scandal in which it was revealed that pills were used by Cosby to drug women before he had his way with them.
The suggestion by Matthews is disgusting to say the least.
But rest assured he’ll get another pass by his fellows in the red-army media.
Here’s more from Hotair…
Chris Matthews is not having a good day. Earlier today I wrote abouthis sustained laughter when Gov. Terry McAuliffe suggested he might punch President Trump for getting in his space. Now The Cut is reporting that Matthews joked about putting a “Bill Cosby pill” in Hillary’s water prior to an interview in early 2016:
On January 5, 2016, MSNBC Hardball host Chris Matthews interviewed Hillary Clinton in an Iowa fire station during the Democratic primary season. Network footage obtained by the Cut shows Matthews, during the interview setup, making a couple of “jokes” about Clinton. He asks, “Can I have some of the queen’s waters? Precious waters?” And then, as he waits for the water, he adds, “Where’s that Bill Cosby pill I brought with me?” Matthews then laughs, delighted with the line, for an extended moment, as the staffers around him react with disbelief, clearly uncomfortable.
“This was a terrible comment I made in poor taste during the height of the Bill Cosby headlines,” Matthews said to the Cut. “I realize that’s no excuse. I deeply regret it and I’m sorry.”
