Chris Matthews Joked About Giving A 'Bill Cosby Pill' To Hillary Clinton Before A 2016 Interview

In a video unearthed by NY magazine, Matthews can be seen making a few inappropriate - and sexist - jokes about then-Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton ahead of a January 5, 2016, interview.

The video, obtained by The Cut, was shot in an Iowa fire station moments before Matthews interviewed Clinton as she sought the Democratic presidential nomination.

Before interviewing the candidate, Matthews made a comment about giving her a "Bill Cosby pill".

The clip is another strike for Matthews, who saw colleague Mark Halperin and fellow NBC star Matt Lauer dismissed from their respective positions last fall as part of the massive sexual harassment reckoning that's still shaking the media industry.

Chris Matthews was caught on hot mic audio mocking Hillary Clinton and then joking that he should have brought along date rape drugs for his interview with the the former Secretary of State.
