Cosby has been accused by scores of women of sexual assault - often with the use of date-rape pills. "Precious waters?" Matthews was seemingly referring to Clinton.

Matthews apologized for his remarks in a statement to the Cut Friday.

He laughed while staffers around him prepped for the January 5, 2016, interview at an Iowa fire station during the Democratic primary season.

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

"This was a awful comment I made in poor taste during the height of the Bill Cosby headlines", Matthews said.

Matthews said that it was a bad comment he made in poor taste when the Cosby case was in the headlines.

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.

Treasure Hunt drawings are held seven days a week, and tickets can be purchased up to seven draws (one week) in advance. "I bought the ticket for multiple drawings", Pearne said of his quick pick ticket with three sets of numbers.

"As person who set up this interview and assured HRC & team I believed Chris would be fair, this makes me feel ill".

"There are no words".

Prior to their chat at an Iowa fire station, Matthews was recorded joking about in a way that made light of both Clinton and sexual assault.

Matthews has always been known to have a combative relationship with former candidate Clinton. He pinched her cheek after an interview in 2008, and suggested that her political career had been advanced because her husband had "messed around". Matthews said to a crew member.

"Did you see her walk?"

Two former NBC producers alleged that Matthews ran a sexist news operation, claiming he would rate the appearances of his female guests, the Daily Caller reported in December. "My God is that good". Matthews was reprimanded, an MSNBC spokesman said at the time.
