Chris Matthews Made Date Rape Drug Joke About Hillary Clinton, Will He be Fired?

Chris Matthews Made Date Rape Drug Joke About Hillary Clinton, Will He be Fired?

“Where’s that Bill Cosby pill I brought with me?”

Two years ago, when Chris Matthews of MSNBC was preparing for an interview with candidate Hillary Clinton, he was caught on camera making a joke about slipping a “Bill Cosby pill” into her water.

It’s fun to imagine what the reaction would be if a FOX News host was caught saying this.

Noreen Malone of The Cut broke the story:

Exclusive: Watch Chris Matthews Joke About His ‘Bill Cosby Pill’ Before Interviewing Hillary Clinton

On January 5, 2016, MSNBC Hardball host Chris Matthews interviewed Hillary Clinton in an Iowa fire station during the Democratic primary season. Network footage obtained by the Cut shows Matthews, during the interview setup, making a couple of “jokes” about Clinton. He asks, “Can I have some of the queen’s waters? Precious waters?” And then, as he waits for the water, he adds, “Where’s that Bill Cosby pill I brought with me?” Matthews then laughs, delighted with the line, for an extended moment, as the staffers around him react with disbelief, clearly uncomfortable. (Cosby has been accused of sexual impropriety by dozens of women, some of whom allege that they were drugged and raped by the comedian.)

“This was a terrible 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. I deeply regret it and I’m sorry.”

Matthews has a long history of talking disparagingly about Hillary Clinton, whom he once called “witchy,”and often seems to channel what a hypothetical sexist Republican might say about a woman candidate: “she-devil,” “Madame Defarge.”

Watch the video in the tweet below:

Will Matthews be fired over this? The left would certainly call for the scalp of any conservative who said it.

Brandon Carter of The Hill reminds us this isn’t Matthews’ first time at the rodeo:

Last month, The Daily Caller reported that a former MSNBC employee who accused Matthews of sexual harassment in 1999 was given a separation payment by the network.

The woman, who was then an assistant producer on Matthews’s show “Hardball with Chris Matthews,” accused the longtime MSNBC host of making inappropriate comments about her while in the company of others. The Daily Caller reported that the company settled with the woman for $40,000.

MSNBC disputed the report, saying the settlement was “significantly less” than the reported amount.

Here’s the thing. No conservative or Fox personality would ever say this. Because absolutely none of them would ever want to have sex with Hillary.

Also, this isn’t limited to Hillary. Remember when Matthews got tingles up his leg from Obama? Apparently all democrat candidates get him excited.

Well, since the height of the “Me Too” hysteria seems to have passed, I doubt than anyone is going to be canned for such a trivial offense.

If somebody wanted to use a stupid excuse to get rid of Matthews they should have made their move last week.

As usual Tingles has his facts backwards. You’d have to roofie yourself if you intended to have sex with that vile cretin Hillary Clintoon.

His vile, evil comment clearly demonstrates that rape is about power, not sex.

    Well ‘windbag’ that’s not exactly true. The only way Paul could have ‘power’ over Cankles was to beat her with a machete for 1/2 hours then sow the bloody mess arsenic salts and a silver cross. Probably wouldn’t hurt to plant garlic in the grease stain either, for the ultimate power.

    No…I think Paul was talking about ‘True Love’, and we all know that Chris Matthews would rape an empty Campbells Soup can if he thought those limp noodles were liberals. Anyway, why spend money on a ‘roofie’ drug dose when a ball pean hammer would work just as easily?

The 1960s sexual revolution is finally meeting that fate called ‘consequences’.

Despite the fact that I dislike both Chris Matthews and Hillary Clinton, and never watch EITHER of them on TV, I think thks is being blown out of proportion. There’s a DIFFERENCE between actual sexual harassment and saying something stupid, offensive and unfunny. I’ve often said things I thought were witty and charming, which, according to my wife and kids reprimanding me, were stupid, offensive, and unfunny.

    I disagree. This comment was a window on Mathew’s (alleged) soul. Just the fact that he would even think about raping that skank is proof that he should seek professional help.

    I couldn’t agree more. In a different time, these complaints would be from people wearing black, carrying torches, and shrieking, “Burn the witch!”

“Matthews…. often seems to channel what a hypothetical sexist Republican might say about….”

blah blah blah…

Did you notice him afterward trying (unsuccessfully) to get a fist bump for his comment?

Rape, or rape-rape? Apparently, there is a difference with a political pretext in the politically congruent (“=”) world.

Matthews is a nasty, angry old drunk. And those are his best chaeacteristics.
