Chris Matthews Apologizes For “Bill Cosby Pill” Joke, Cosby Is An Evil Man And Not Funny Anymore

One of the reasons that women feel courageous enough to defend powerful abusers, is because some in the media (not us) make light of sexual abuse and what powerful men are doing in Hollywood and all other industries.  To make light of what Cosby has been accused of doing for nearly five decades is as evil as seeing women on social media defending their favorite abusers, based on their political leaning.  Rape is evil and wrong and whether it’s a homeless man sleeping on a park bench doing it or a billionaire in the White House or a favorite TV or movie celebrity, it’s just wrong whoever does it. 

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.


“Can I have some of the queen’s waters? Precious waters?” Matthews is heard and shown saying in a clip obtained and published by New York magazine’s The Cut on Friday.


In the clip, Matthews then asks: “Where’s that Bill Cosby pill I brought with me?” (His crew looks visibly uncomfortable, and a man puts his hand over his face.)


“This was a terrible comment I made in poor taste during the height of the Bill Cosby headlines,” Matthews told the magazine in response. “I realize that’s no excuse. I deeply regret it and I’m sorry.”


I should add that I was warned about Bill Cosby 30 years ago.
