What a creepo Chris Matthews is. We’ve always known about the problem with women and drinking, but this is pathetic how he disses and ogles over Melania Trump.
The MSNBC anchor was caught drooling over Melania Trump live on national television.
The Hardball host was heard enthusiastically commenting on Mrs Trump’s ‘runway walk’ as she joined her husband for his victory speech in Indiana on Tuesday.
While Brian Williams was speaking about the impact the result would have on the Republican party, Matthews could be heard talking about Mrs Trump’s appearance.
Apparently unaware he was speaking into a hot mic, Matthews said: ‘Did you see her walk? Runway walk. My God is that good. I could watch that runway show.’
Williams quickly cut to commercials, but not before scores of people heard what his colleague had said.
Mrs Trump hit back at Matthews, defending herself as an ‘independently successful woman’.
A spokesperson for Melania Trump told Variety exclusively, “Melania Trump is an accomplished businesswoman and entrepreneur in her own right, achieving tremendous success in a variety of industries, including an illustrious modeling career, as well as being a dedicated wife and mother. It is unfortunate to see the continuous inaccuracies and misrepresentations made by the media of Mrs. Trump as anything less than the independently successful woman that she is.”
Long-time Democrat Matthews has been accused of sounding sexist on live television many times before. Here’s a look at some of his sexually regressive greatest hits:
(1) March 5, 2016: Hillary Clinton’s Public Speaking Style
2) June 1, 2011: Attributes Hillary’s success to husband and Sarah Palin’s Success to Her Attractiveness
(4) December 4, 2007: Compares Clinton to Nurse Ratched
In 2007, during the fierce Democratic primary battle, on MSNBC’s “Hardball” Matthews asked viewers if Hillary Clinton reminded anyone of the cold, heartless antagonist in “One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest,” when she went on the offensive against Obama. “Does her attack on [Sen. Barack Obama] for having ambition as a teeny-bopper — not a teeny-bopper, a kindergartner, does she look like Nurse Ratched here?”
(5) September 27, 2007: Asks former Sen. Chris Dodd If it Was Hard to Debate a Woman, Says Bill Had Her on a “Short Leash”
During MSNBC’s analysis of the Democratic debate, Matthews asked guest then Senator Chris Dodd about his experience debating then Senator Clinton. “Do you find it difficult to debate a woman?” Matthews asked. “Not at all,” Dodd responded. The conversation continued, and Matthews told Tim Russert, Bill Clinton had Hillary under his thumb. “Let me tell you how short Hillary’s leash is. She was asked by you, sir, about whether we’re going to get full disclosure of contributors to presidential libraries. And she did not feel that she had the latitude in her husband’s absence to give you an answer. She said, you’ll have to ask my husband, as if you’re a guy going door to door trying to sell someone and says you’ll have to wait for my husband to get home.”
(6) August 10, 2007: Called Erin Burnett a “Knockout” During a Financial News Segment
During a discussion of business news on MSNBC’s “Hardball” Matthews asked Erin Burnett for a close-up. “Could you get a little closer to the camera? Come on in closer. No, come in — come in further — come in closer. Really close,” Matthews said. As Burnett began to move closer to the camera, Matthews responded. “Just kidding! Matthews responded. “You look great! Anyway, thanks. Erin, it’s great to–look at that look! You’re great. You’re beautiful. I’m just kidding. I’m just kidding. You’re a knockout. Anyway, thank you, Erin Burnett. It’s all right getting bad news from you, even, OK? Thanks for coming on ‘Hardball.’”
