[Ed. – ‘Old’ guys? Matthews is 74. Behar is 77.]
“Shut up, Chris, all right? You’re out now, goodbye – although I did enjoy his show,” Behar said on Tuesday. She had criticized the way Matthews previously described former first lady Hillary Clinton and one of her husband’s accusers.
“I did, I have to say, I used to watch it at 7 o’clock. He’s passionate and he loves politics and he loves history – and I enjoyed that about him, but you know what? It’s enough with these old guys with their stupid remarks.”
Matthews resigned on Monday night amid mounting criticism of the way he treated women.
“Let me start with my headline tonight: I’m retiring. This is the last ‘Hardball’ on MSNBC,” Matthews said during Monday’s “Hardball.”
