MSNBC’s Chris Matthews said Thursday that Hillary Clinton is like “an old girlfriend” that Donald Trump “can’t get over in a weird way.”


On “Hardball With Chris Matthews,” the host played several clips of President Trump talking about Clinton negatively, then remarked, “It’s like an old torch, an old girlfriend he can’t get over in a weird way. And obviously, perversely, he can’t get her out of his head. What is this?”

Matthews, meanwhile, has been accused of running an abusive work environment, objectifying women and making inappropriate sexual comments about them. One person told The Daily Caller, “He would eye down a woman who walked on set or comment on their features or what they were wearing,” adding, “he would objectify them and interrupt them in a way that he would never do to his male guests. He has a very outdated view of women.” (RELATED: Sources: Chris Matthews Runs An Abusive Work Environment)

He was also the subject of harassment accusation in 1999 that he paid $40,000 to settle, as The Daily Caller’s Amber Athey reported. (RELATED: NBC Made Payment To Staffer After Sexual Harassment Claim Against Chris Matthews)
