“Can I have some of the queen’s waters? Precious waters?” the MSNBC host said on Jan. 5, 2016 while waiting to interview Clinton at an Iowa firehouse during presidential primaries. And then, as he waits for the water, he added, “Where’s that Bill Cosby pill I brought with me?” Matthews apologized today, telling The Cut: “This was a terrible comment I made in poor taste during the height of the Bill Cosby headlines. I realize that’s no excuse. I deeply regret it and I’m sorry.” ALSO: Bill Cosby reportedly made a #MeToo joke this week.
