MSNBC's Chris Matthews Joked About Drugging Hillary Clinton

Chris Matthews jokes about putting

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.

During the interview that followed, Matthews asked Clinton about her husband's infidelity and asked her whether it was "culturally" important for women to be allowed into military combat roles.

The Cut got hold of the video.

Cosby has been accused of sexual misconduct by dozens of women and some of his accusers allege that he drugged and raped them.

"This was a awful comment I made in poor taste during the height of the Bill Cosby headlines", Matthews said to the Cut.

Reps for Clinton didn't immediately respond to a request for comment from TheWrap.

ECB Minutes Suggest Policy Communication Script May Be Revised Soon
In the US , the Labor Department reported that weekly jobless claims rose by 11,000 to 261,000 new claims, a three-month high . Talk of an end to QE has raised speculation that the European Central Bank could follow up with a rate hike late in 2018.

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". Also watch the interview.

"There are no words".

Matthews has hosted "Hardball" since 1997. Before embarking on a career in television, he cut his teeth on Capitol Hill, serving as an aide to former Speaker of the House Tip O'Neill. He once pinched her cheek after an interview, and, in 2008 said, "the reason she's a USA senator, the reason she's a candidate for president, the reason she may be a front-runner is her husband messed around". Matthews said to a crew member. "We keep forgetting it".

Still, Matthews has long shown that he has no love for Clinton. "Runway walk", he could be heard saying.

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. "My God is that good".
