MSNBC's Chris Matthews Joked About Drugging Hillary Clinton

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. "Precious waters", according to the outtake footage.

The MSNBC host said it was a particularly disgusting joke in light of recent news about powerful men accused of sexually harassment and assault.

"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".

Then, in a video obtained by the Cut, joked, "Where's that Bill Cosby pill I brought with me?" "I realize that's no excuse. I deeply regret it and I'm sorry".

Throughout the years, he has also called her "witchy", "anti-male" and "uppity", while referring to her laugh as a "cackle". Additional women accused him of sexual harassment and assault, and some insisted that executives at the network knew about his behavior. In 2005, he questioned if troops would take orders from her as president. A female producer who said he made inappropriate comments in the workplace reportedly received separation-related compensation. An MSNBC spokesperson contested that claim to the Caller, saying the company instead paid significantly less as part of a severance package.

MSNBC's Chris Matthews really stepped in it this time. The network said his comments were inappropriate but not meant to be taken as propositions.

Matthews has always been known to have a combative relationship with former candidate Clinton.
