MSNBC host Chris Matthews is in hot water for ogling Melania Trump during Tuesday night’s victory rally in New York City.
Matthews was caught on open mic talking about Donald Trump's wife. “The way she walks," he was heard saying. "Did you see her walk? Runway walk. My God is that good. I could watch that runway show!”
Twitter was not happy.
“The way you talk about Trump's wife should get you thrown off the air,” one offended viewer posted.
“Disgusting in every way,” wrote another.
@maddow I should hope you gave Chris Matthews an earful for sexualizing Melania on an open mic.— Dustin Westphal (@EvilBachus) May 4, 2016
Amazed by Chris Matthews' Melania Trump hot mic comments. #Awkward— Brent Lang (@BrentALang) May 4, 2016
Seems @MSNBC left Chris Matthews' mic on -- yapping about Melania Trump's "runway" walk...and that he could "watch that all day..." Nice!— Mike Embrescia (@MikeEmbrescia) May 4, 2016
In a statement to CNN, a spokesperson for Melania Trump said she is “an accomplished businesswoman and entrepreneur in her own right."
The spokesperson added that it was "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."
