Chris Matthews Made Bill Cosby Pill Joke Before Interviewing Hillary Clinton

DC: A newly surfaced video shows MSNBC anchor Chris Matthews joking about finding his “Bill Cosby pill” before interviewing 2016 presidential candidate Hillary Clinton.

The January 5, 2016 video was uncovered by New York Magazine’s The Cut and shows the “Hardball” host cracking jokes on set to staffers before Clinton arrives for an interview.

“Can I have some of the queen’s waters? Precious waters?” Matthews laughed, before adding, “Where’s that Bill Cosby pill I brought with me?”

Bill Cosby is accused of drugging and raping multiple women.


Matthews smiles and laughs at his own joke for several seconds. Tina Urbanski, who was just promoted to co-executive producer of the show, looks on in disbelief. Her mouth hangs open and she appears horrified by the comment.  read more

  1. He is crass, nothing new here. What you do have is the reaction of the lone female on the set giving the “I can’t believe he just said that” look (hostile work environment). You need someone going on Maddow or CNBC or the Today Show and hammering him. Make the other network hosts vouch for him. Ask if he has a secret button on his desk to lock the door on female staffers.

  2. The guy is a big-mouth jerk. We know this.

    Him rating women on a 10-scale is a big deal.
    I’ll rate him a 6 for that. I’ve done that.

    Rape jokes?

    “Did you see her walk? Runway walk. My God is that good. I could watch that runway show.”–Also Matthews.
    Give him a 10, b/c every hetro male in the world was thinking the same thing.

    So his average here is 5.6. Not a very successful comedian.
