Chris Matthews, the host of MSNBC "Hardball" made a rape joke about Hillary Clinton while she was running for president in 2016. And it was caught on video.
While preparing to interview Hillary on January 5, 2016 in an Iowa fire station during the primaries, Matthews made the joke. This is according to a report form The Cut.
During the video Matthews asks,“Can I have some of the queen’s waters? Precious waters?”
After a few moments go by Matthews asks, “Where’s that Bill Cosby pill I brought with me?”
This was a joke in reference to Bill Cosby and the pills he allegedly gave to numerous women so he could rape them.
Per Daily Wire:
MSNBC refuses to respond to The Daily Wire over the recent allegations made against Matthews which include sexual harassment and fostering an abusive workplace environment.
Matthews is accused of screaming at staffers, throwing objects, and demeaning anyone under him in the hierarchy which includes leaving women in tears and berating guests on his show.
"The screaming is beyond the screaming you’ve ever heard," one source saId. "You just feel so under attack. He did it so openly… what are you supposed to do when somebody is verbally abusing you and attacking you this way?"
Matthews also allegedly settled a sexual harassment accusation made against him in 1999 for making “inappropriate comments and jokes about her while in the company of others.”
MSNBC refuses to comment. Will any of the other mainstream media report on this? What a disgusting joke by Matthews. Can you imagine if Trump approached anything near saying this?
