Is there no greater fear for a TV host than not knowing your mic is on when you’re talking reckless? MSNBC’s Chris Matthews was caught thirsting over GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump’s wife, Melania Trump, on live television.
Did you see her walk? Runway walk. My God is that good,” Matthews said.
It appeared that the 70-year-old “Hardball” host wasn’t aware his comments were being broadcast. “I could watch that runway show,” he added.
Brian Williams, who was co-anchoring the coverage of Trump’s victory, quickly cut to a commercial break. MNSBC declined to comment to Variety about the incident.
Matthews also said “I could watch that runway show,” or something like that.
Listen to Chris Matthews lose all chill in the clip below.
While Matthews’ commentary is inexcusable, let’s not forget the real struggle here, the best presidential candidate the GOP could muster was Donald, Trump.
