MSNBC's Chris Matthews apologizes for Cosby comment

MSNBC's Chris Matthews apologizes for Cosby comment

The Cut obtained the footage, which was taken on the set of his MSNBC show Hardball while he filmed from Iowa is January 2016 during the Democratic primary in that state between Clinton and Senator Bernie Sanders. "Where's that Bill Cosby pill I brought with me?" he asks to awkward laughter from staffers around him. "Precious waters?" he innocently jokes, before diving in.

New York Magazine contacted Matthews after acquiring the clip, and he apologized, reportedly telling them the joke was "a awful comment [he] made in poor taste during the height of the Bill Cosby headlines". "I realize that's no excuse". Cosby, it should be noted, has been accused of drugging women before allegedly assaulting them.

Jennifer Palmieri, the Clinton campaign's communication director who was present for the interview, said in a tweet Friday that watching the video of Matthews "makes me feel ill". "I deeply regret it and I'm sorry".

He added that those behind the attack were aiming to thwart the Russia-Turkey-Iran agreement on de-escalation zones. Another three drones attacked the Russian naval facility in Tartus, the Russian Defense Ministry claimed .

Back in 2008, he also pinched Clinton's cheek after conducting an interview with her, saying afterwards that he was "not obsessed" with the former First Lady. He once called Clinton "witchy", and has repeatedly questioned whether her gender could have a negative impact on her ability to make decisions. Matthews said to a crew member.

In December, The Daily Caller reported that NBC paid $40,000 to a female staffer after she accused Matthews of sexual harassment.

From speaking inappropriately about Melania Trump on a hot mic to recalling an odd JFK story about watching porn on election night, MSNBC's Chris Matthews doesn't have the best filter. Based on people who were involved in the matter, the network concluded that the comments were inappropriate and juvenile but were not meant to be taken as propositions.
