Chris Matthews Apologizes For "Bill Cosby Pill" Joke
MSNBC anchor Chris Matthews has apologized for making an inappropriate joke about Bill Cosby before an interview with then-candidate Hillary Clinton on the campaign trail in January 2016.
In the clip, Matthews then asks: “Where’s that Bill Cosby pill I brought with me?”
"This was a terrible comment I made in poor taste during the height of the Bill Cosby headlines,” Matthews told the magazine in response.
In September, Mediaite published leaked video showing MSNBC anchor Lawrence O'Donnell melting down on set during breaks on his show.
MSNBC anchor Chris Hayes, in an interview with THR a week later, said it was "pretty messed up" that the O'Donnell video was leaked to the press.
