Media pundits are widely condemning GOP nominee Donald Trump for engaging in “locker room banter” with former Access Hollywood anchor Billy Bush, which included lewd remarks about women.
…but where were these individuals when MSNBC’s Chris Matthews was caught on a hot mic lusting after Trump’s wife, Melania.
Somehow, the liberal Matthews was given a complete pass while Trump is vilified for not respecting women.
BizPac Review reported on the Matthews incident back in May, as seen here:
Now we have a whole new reason to call him “Tingles.”
A live microphone caught MSNBC’s Chris Matthews making some candid comments about Melania Trump.
During the network’s coverage of Donald Trump’s victory speech in Indiana on Tuesday, Matthews made a remark about Melania’s walk after watching her join her husband on the podium, Variety reported.
“Did you see her walk? Runway walk. My God is that good,” he said, apparently unaware of the hot mic.
“I could watch that runway show,” he added, as co-anchor Brian Williams cut to commercial break.

Ironically, the 70-year-old Matthews has criticized Trump for his lack of respect for women and his sexist policies, according to Variety, which reported that the MSNBC host has made many sexist remarks on live TV himself.
Melania was previously a model and now runs her own successful business. A spokesperson for Trump’s wife told Variety:
“Melania Trump is an accomplished businesswoman and entrepreneur in her own right, achieving tremendous success in a variety of industries, including an illustrious modeling career, as well as being a dedicated wife and mother. It is unfortunate to see the continuous inaccuracies and misrepresentations made by the media of Mrs. Trump as anything less than the independently successful woman that she is.”
