Chris Matthews Apologizes For "Bill Cosby Pill" Joke

Not Released

MSNBC host Chris Matthews is apologizing for a joke he made at Hillary Clinton's expense before a January 5, 2016, interview with the then-Democratic presidential candidate.

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.

The Cut's Noreen Malone, who uncovered the footage, noted that Matthews "then laughs, delighted with the line" and staffers are seen reacting "with disbelief, clearly uncomfortable".

"This was a bad comment I made in poor taste during the height of the Bill Cosby headlines", Matthews said in statement. "I realize that's no excuse".

MSNBC star Chris Matthews has apologized for joking about a "Bill Cosby pill" before interviewing Hillary Clinton. He said, "I deeply regret it and I'm sorry". He has a long history of making disparaging comments about Clinton.

Dark Souls remaster coming to PC, XO, PS4, and Switch
New graphics and lighting, natch, plus online upgrades to bring it to a similar player count as later games in the series. Nintendo only facilitated the reveal though, as the remaster will also be coming to PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One .

Jennifer Palmieri, the Clinton campaign's communication director and a longtime Democratic operative, said watching the Matthews tape "makes me feel ill".

A fast-talking political junkie, Matthews has served as the host of "Hardball", a fixture on MSNBC's programming lineup, since 1997.

He apologized in 2008 after he said that Clinton became a USA senator and a leading presidential candidate only because "her husband messed around".

It's not even the first time Matthews has targeted Hillary Clinton, though this clip lacks the blunt sexism of questions like "Is her gender a problem in her ability to change her mind?" something he asked in 2006.

In December, conservative news siteThe Daily Caller reported that MSNBC paid out $40,000 to one of Matthews former assistants to settle a sexual harassment complaint from 1999. "Runway walk", he could be heard saying.
