Bet his wife will enjoy this.
MSNBC anchor Chris Matthews has been caught ogling Melania Trump live on national television.
The Hardball host was heard enthusiastically commenting on Mrs Trump’s ‘runway walk’ as she joined her husband for his victory speech in Indiana on Tuesday.
While Brian Williams was speaking about the impact the result would have on the Republican party, Matthews could be heard talking about Mrs Trump’s appearance.
Apparently unaware he was speaking into a hot mic, Matthews said: ‘Did you see her walk? Runway walk. My God is that good. I could watch that runway show.’
Williams quickly cut to commercials, but not before scores of people heard what his colleague had said.
Mrs Trump hit back at Matthews, defending herself as an ‘independently successful woman’.
‘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,’ her spokesman told Variety.
‘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.’
Let’s not get carried away. It’s quite obvious you didn’t marry the orange freak for his good looks.
Dozens of people took to Twitter to slam Matthews, demanding MSNBC take him off the air.
Michael Hayes tweeted: ‘The way you talk about Trump’s wife should get you thrown off the air. You’re a real slime ball.’
Another Twitter user, called Eva, wrote simply: ‘#ChrisMatthews is a vile pig.’
Greg Pollowitz added: ‘Chris Matthews has been a pig for a long time’.
Martsen said: ‘Good God Chris Matthews is disgusting in every way.’
