On Tuesday night, MSNBC Hardball host Chris Matthews was reporting on Donald Trump—and how good Melania Trump looked. While his co-workers were busy covering the Indiana primary, Matthews believed that nobody could hear what he was saying about Mrs. Trump. He was wrong. Everyone heard—including Brian Williams, who wisely cut to commercial so viewers could be spared further thoughts from Matthews.
Variety confirmed that Matthews said, "Did you see her walk? That's runway walk. My God, is that good." But that wasn't all. "I could watch that runway show."
Hardball has a whole new meaning now, doesn't it?
Ugh, ick, eek.
Matthews has a point: Melania, who is a former model, is a nice-looking lady.
But it's Chris Matthews making that comment. Then again, Melania is married to Donald Trump. So maybe the Slovenia transport was into the praise? Eh, not so much. Her rep shared a statement in response:
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.
Good for Mrs. Trump, being successful at those things she does.
