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.

In it, Matthews first asks for "some of the Queen's waters, precious waters", mocking Clinton.

The footage, unearthed by The Cut, shows Matthews preparing to interview Clinton during the presidential campaign in late 2016. "Where's that Bill Cosby pill I brought with me?"

Cosby has been accused by scores of women of sexual assault - often with the use of date-rape pills.

"This was a awful comment I made in poor taste during the height of the Bill Cosby headlines", Matthews told The Cut. He has a long history of making disparaging comments about Clinton.

A spokesperson for Clinton did not immediately respond to a request for comment, but aides to the former Democratic presidential candidate expressed revulsion and bewilderment over the footage. Also watch the interview. In December, it was revealed that Matthews was accused of sexual harassment in 1999 by an assistant producer on "Hardball with Chris Matthews". In 2008, he apologized for saying she only became a USA senator and presidential candidate because "her husband messed around". "We keep forgetting it".

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

Matthews apologized for his remarks after The Cut contacted him.

A spokesperson for the network said that Matthews was formally reprimanded at the time.

"Did you see her walk?"
