MSNBC's Chris Matthews Joked About Drugging Hillary Clinton

MSNBC's Chris Matthews Joked About Drugging Hillary Clinton

Surrounded by a slew of staffers, the "Hardball" anchor asks, "Can I have some of the queen's waters?" Mr. Matthews made the offending comment as he was prepping for an interview with Mrs. Clinton at an Iowa fire station during the Democratic primary season on January 5, 2016, The Cut reported. "Precious waters?" Matthews was seemingly referring to Clinton.

While a staffer is pouring some bottled water into a glass, Matthews asks "Where's my Bill Cosby pill?" before cracking up at his reference to a comedian accused of drugging and sexually assaulting over 50 women.

Matthews apologized for his remarks in a statement Friday, and said his comments were "made in poor taste during the height of the Bill Cosby headlines".

The clip is another strike for Matthews, who saw colleague Mark Halperin and fellow NBC star Matt Lauer dismissed from their respective positions last fall as part of the massive sexual harassment reckoning that's still shaking the media industry. "I realize that's no excuse".

An unfazed Kumar, who went on to address a public meeting in Dumraon block, said, "Some people feel disturbed over my commitment to progress of the state".

Still, Matthews has long shown that he has no love for Clinton. He said, "I deeply regret it and I'm sorry".

He wondered aloud in 2005 if the military would "take the orders" from a female commander in chief, like Clinton, Jezebel reported. In 2008, he apologized for saying she only became a USA senator and presidential candidate because "her husband messed around".

MSNBC later confirmed the report from The Daily Caller that Mathews was formally reprimanded and that the employee had been paid compensation upon leaving her job. The network said his comments were inappropriate but not meant to be taken as propositions. From 2002 until 2013, he also hosted "The Chris Matthews Show".
