MSNBC host joked about putting a “Bill Cosby pill” in Hillary Clinton’s water before a 2016 interview, video obtained by New York Magazine’s The Cut shows.
The video was recorded before an interview in Iowa during the primaries.
“Can I have some of the queen’s waters? Precious waters?” Matthews asks a producer.
“Where’s that Bill Cosby pill I brought with me?” Matthews then jokes and erupts with laughter as a staffer shakes his head.
Matthews said in a statement to The Cut, “This was a terrible comment I made in poor taste during the height of the Bill Cosby headlines. I realize that’s no excuse. I deeply regret it and I’m sorry.”
