MSNBC host Chris Matthews is finding himself in hot water once again. This time, it’s for making a gross joke about 2016 presidential candidate Hillary Clinton.
New York Magazine’s The Cut published a video on Friday showing Matthews making jokes about the former Secretary of State before an interview in Iowa on January 5, 2016, during the Democratic primary. It was Clinton’s first national television interview of 2016.
“Can I have some of the queen’s waters? Precious waters?” he remarks. “Where’s that Bill Cosby pill I brought with me?” Matthews then says, laughing.
Matthews provided a statement to The Cut, apologizing for his gross joke: “This was a terrible comment I made in poor taste during the height of the Bill Cosby headlines,” stated Matthews. “I realize that’s no excuse. I deeply regret it and I’m sorry.”
This is far from the first time Matthews has insulted the former First Lady.
