Matthews ‘sorry’ for Cosby com­ment

The Maui News - - TODAY’S PEOPLE -

PASADENA, Calif. — MSNBC’s Chris Matthews apol­o­gized for jok­ing about a “Bill Cosby pill” while await­ing an in­ter­view with Hil­lary Clin­ton two years ago.

Out­take footage ob­tained by the web­site The Cut showed Matthews in an Iowa fire sta­tion, ask­ing if he could “have some of the queen’s wa­ters.” Then he said, “where’s that Bill Cosby pill I brought with me?”

The ref­er­ence was to ac­cu­sa­tions that Cosby drugged and as­saulted women.

Matthews said that it was a ter­ri­ble com­ment he made in poor taste when the Cosby case was in the head­lines. He said, “I deeply re­gret it and I’m sorry.”
