MSNBC's Chris Matthews Joked About Drugging Hillary Clinton

Chris Matthews, host of MSNBC's "Hardball," was caught on tape making a joke about drugging then-presidential candidate Hillary Clinton.

Before interviewing the candidate, Matthews made a comment about giving her a "Bill Cosby pill." That statement, caught by a hot mic, likely referred to the  many allegations  that Cosby drugged and sexually assaulted women.

The Cut  obtained and published the video on Friday.

Matthews told the outlet: "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." Matthews is already notorious for making sexist and misogynist comments toward women.

A writer with Media Matters for America compiled and tweeted nearly  40 other incidents .

Other incidents include  Matthews ogling Melania Trump, saying Sarah Palin "could not be hotter as a candidate," and asking former Sen.

Chris Dodd if he found it difficult to debate women.

Both networks have been taking harder stances on harassment.

In 2017, the  networks cut ties  with Matt Lauer and Mark Halperin following accusations of "inappropriate sexual behavior" and misconduct.
