Carol Roth is an entrepreneur and commentator, best known in conservative circles for burning Piers Morgan on gun control, but she had her own experience to add to the revelation that Chris Matthews had paid to settle sexual harassment claims.
He was very condescending when I was on Maher w him. Talked over me, called me nonsensical name (debt truther?) & then backstage after said "I feel bad for yelling at you because you're so darn cute" after looking me up and down. https://t.co/MIoahev20R— Carol Roth (@caroljsroth) December 17, 2017
Then some idiot tried to say that Matthews did the same to him:
Other than the “darn cute” thing, this is what Chris Matthews does. He talks over you and is condescending on the air. Did it to me too. (And was quite nice after.) It’s not evidence of him beng sexist. #MeToo is accomplishing great things, but let’s keep it focused. https://t.co/BYGOFPfNxB— John Aravosis (@aravosis) December 17, 2017
Uhhhh, yeah there’s just one difference, moran:
Correct, he left out the darn cute part for you. Didn't say it was sexual harassment, just condescending in a way he wouldn't have treated a man. https://t.co/J3o1sPvRcK— Carol Roth (@caroljsroth) December 17, 2017
Roth is not the type to exaggerate for notoriety or fame. I believe her account, especially when you consider the weirdly creepy video of Matthews talking to Erin Burnett about her looks for a cringy length of time:
And no, none of this is sexual harassment per se. But it does show a pattern of behavior towards women that is unprofessional, and helps support the sexual harassment accusations…
