MSNBC's Chris Matthews apologizes for 'Bill Cosby pill' comment

MSNBC's Chris Matthews apologizes for 'Bill Cosby pill' comment

The clip was shot in 2016 in the midst of the Democratic primary election, just before Matthews was set to interview Clinton in a fire station in Iowa; a fire truck is prominently visible behind them.

MSNBC host Chris Matthews apologized Friday after leaked footage showed him joking about slipping Hillary Clinton a "Bill Cosby pill" before he interviewed the former presidential candidate in 2016.

The "Hardball" host asks, "Can I have some of the queen's waters?"

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".

Before Clinton shows up Matthews cracks a few snide jokes to his crew.

A spokeswoman for MSNBC referred BuzzFeed News to a statement Matthews made to the Cut.

"This was a bad comment I made in poor taste during the height of the Bill Cosby headlines", Matthews said to the Cut. "I realize that's no excuse". He said, "I deeply regret it and I'm sorry".

"I am a huge supporter of women being able to break whatever glass ceilings are holding them back", Clinton answered, before Matthews jumped in, adding: "If they can physically handle it". Cosby has been accused of sexual misconduct by dozens of women, including allegations that he drugged women to sexually assault them. Matthews has been criticized before for making disparging remarks about Clinton, including calling her a "she-devil" and "anti-male". As of this writing, neither NBC Universal, NBC News, nor Matthews' own MSNBC has officially commented on the matter.

In Decemeber, the Daily Caller reported a former MSNBC employee received separation-related compensation after lodging a complaint against Matthews in 1999.
