Matthews asks, "Can I have some of the queen's waters?"

The footage, unearthed by The Cut, shows Matthews preparing to interview Clinton during the presidential campaign in late 2016.

As of this writing, neither NBC Universal, NBC News, nor Matthews' own MSNBC has officially commented on the matter. "Precious waters?" And then, as he waits for the water, he adds, "Where's that Bill Cosby pill I brought with me?".

There are 2 comments on the Washington Times story from 1 hr ago, titled Chris Matthews apologizes for joke about slipping Hillary Clinton a a Bill Cosby pilla. "I realize that's no excuse".

During the interview that followed, Matthews asked Clinton about her husband's infidelity and asked her whether it was "culturally" important for women to be allowed into military combat roles. Cosby, it should be noted, has been accused of drugging women before allegedly assaulting them. He once called Clinton "witchy", and has repeatedly questioned whether her gender could have a negative impact on her ability to make decisions.

In a meeting last fall, the president apparently said that a female intelligence expert should be assisting the U.S.in its negotiations with North Korea purely because of her Korean heritage, NBC News reported. The payment was intended as a settlement, though some sources disputed the number, saying it was lower and part of a severance package.

MSNBC recently admitted that Matthews had settled with a former producer who accused him of sexual harassment. Based on people who were involved in the matter, the network concluded that the comments were inappropriate and juvenile but were not meant to be taken as propositions.

Matthews has hosted "Hardball" since 1997.

He also said, in 2015 upon hearing a rumor that she might quit the race, "when Hillary Clinton quits this election, we'll shut down the show".
