  • >> Chris Matthews, host of Hardball on MSNBC, has just announced his retirement.

  • He announced it on MSNBC's air, so let's take a look at what he had to say.

  • >> Let me start with my headline tonight, I'm retiring.

  • This is the last Hardball on MSNBC.

  • And obviously, this isn't for a lack of interest in politics.

  • As you can tell, I've loved every minute of my 20 years as host of Hardball.

  • After conversation with MSNBC, I decided tonight will be my last Hardball.

  • So let me tell you why.

  • The younger generations out there are ready to take the reins.

  • We see them in politics, in the media, and fighting for their causes.

  • They are improving the workplace.

  • We're talking here about better standards than we grew up with, fair standards.

  • A lot of it has to do with how we talk to each other.

  • Compliments on a woman's appearance that some men, including me, might have once incorrectly

  • thought were okay were never okay.

  • Not then, is certainly not today, and for making such comments in the past, I'm sorry.

  • >> Now, as we know, Chris Matthews has faced quite a bit of backlash over the last few

  • weeks because of his comments about Bernie Sanders and his candidacy.

  • But recently there were some accusations of sexual harassment toward Chris Matthews.

  • And so Laura Bassett, who is a columnist for GQ, shared some details about her experience

  • with Chris Matthews back in 2016.

  • And I wanna share those details with you.

  • My guess is that's what he was referencing in that statement.

  • In 2016, according to Laura Bassett, right before I had to go on his show and talk about

  • sexual assault allegations against Donald Trump, Matthews looked over at me in the makeup

  • chair next to him and said, quote, why haven't I fallen in love with you yet?

  • When I laughed nervously and said nothing, he followed up to the makeup artist, keep

  • putting makeup on her, I'll fall in love with her.

  • >> That's a weird line.

  • >> Yes, incredibly weird lines.

  • But you don't even have to rely on what he said to someone in some degree of privacy,

  • because he said incredibly uncomfortable things to women on the air.

  • This was a video that I remembered in reading about the details of these sexual harassment

  • allegations.

  • This is from 2007 when Erin Burnett was about to join CNN, and here's how the conversation

  • went down.

  • >> Could you get a little closer to the camera?

  • >> Why, what is it?

  • Is it something >> Come in closer.

  • No, come in closer, really close.

  • >> What are you doing?

  • >> Just kidding, you look great.

  • Anyway, thanks, Erin, it's great to have you.

  • Look at that look.

  • >> I don't even know, I'm gonna have to go look at the tape, here

  • >> No, you are beautiful.

  • I'm just kidding, I'm just kidding, you're a knockout.

  • Anyway, thank you, Erin Burnett.

  • >> All right.

  • >> That's all right getting bad news from you even, okay?

  • >> And some of you might think, well, that was back in 2007, the culture was different

  • then, he might have changed.

  • >> It wasn't that long ago.

  • >> Except here's what he had to say about Melania Trump fairly recently.

  • >> And only the candidate can make that decision.

  • >> And the party will trust Trump to be able to make that decision.

  • >> Well, I think the party wants a role in it.

  • >> Look how she walks.

  • Do you see her walk?

  • Runway model.

  • My God, is that good.

  • >> We just heard from the likely nominee of the Republican party.

  • We will go to a break here.

  • >> I could watch that runway show.

  • >> The discussion.

  • >> Yeah, time to go.

  • >> So hold on, the obvious question is, did he not know that his mic was live?

  • But the secondary question is, did he not know that he was with other people?

  • Because even if you thought your mic wasn't on, why would you vocalize those thoughts?

  • That's way too revealing and personal and specific.

  • >> Because he has a history of vocalizing those thoughts and not suffering any consequences

  • for it whatsoever.

  • >> That's true.

  • >> So that segment with Erin Burnett was so uncomfortable to watch, to experience.

  • >> I felt so bad for her that she had to go through that.

  • It's so weird and drawn out.

  • And you're not just saying something, which would be bad enough, but making her do something.

  • It's this weird, I have the power to make you do the thing I want.

  • I didn't like it at all.

  • I thought his sort of apology, just the apology, not all the context around other things he

  • said and done, God only knows, I thought that apology was good.

  • He didn't do the thing that they all do, which is, standards are changing and people are

  • sensitive now.

  • >> That's true.

  • >> I said something back in the day and it was fine then, but I get, okay, now it's not

  • fine.

  • Lots of them say that.

  • Almost no comedian can pass this bar.

  • He said, it wasn't right then.

  • We thought it was, it wasn't.

  • It was never okay.

  • >> It's true.

  • >> And that's the right stance.

  • >> I mean, I don't know if he's genuine.

  • I don't really care to speculate about that, but I liked that he didn't trash younger generations

  • who are fighting for equality in the workplace, who are fighting for a more comfortable work

  • environment for women and minorities.

  • So I guess I'll give them some credit for that.

  • But one other thing that really stood out to me was, I didn't know he was 74 years old

  • until today.

  • I knew he was up there in age, but 74 is so he's retiring.

  • And what's incredible to me is that as he experienced Bernie Sanders rising in the polls,

  • winning primaries, he started panicking as if he was some sort of victim.

  • And all I could think about is, he gets to retire.

  • >> Yeah.

  • >> With millions and millions of dollars.

  • >> I guess he has some money.

  • >> He is good.

  • He is not a victim.

  • >> Yeah.

  • >> And he never will be.

  • He is an incredibly privileged person, despite all the terrible things he said both on the

  • air and behind the scenes, despite his terrible political analysis, he gets to retire comfortably

  • with millions of dollars, tens of millions of dollars in the bank.

  • He's good.

  • He was never a victim.

  • >> Yeah.

  • >> But he somehow tried to make himself out to be one because he doesn't like Bernie Sanders.

  • >> That's true.

  • I will say, just purely sort of looking back at him, look, I never like sat down and watched

  • an hour of his show, but I did like, and Cenk has said things like this, I liked the enthusiasm

  • that he brought to it.

  • There was an element there of interest in politics that a lot of them don't have that

  • reminds me more of us.

  • It's the only thing that reminds me more of us.

  • It's not like I'm a news actor, put some stuff on the teleprompter and I will read it for

  • you, he actually cared and was passionate.

  • It led him in the wrong direction.

  • I don't agree with a lot of his values and, obviously, not with any of the policies he

  • would go for, certainly any of the candidates he would go for, but I liked that.

  • I think that's one of the reasons he had the audience he did was, he sort of had this sort

  • of like childlike glee sort of thing to him.

  • And beyond that, that's the only thing I'm saying.

  • >> Okay, I'm just gonna leave it there.

>> Chris Matthews, host of Hardball on MSNBC, has just announced his retirement.
