A microphone picked up MSNBC commentator Chris Matthews’ comments about Donald Trump’s wife Melania’s “runway walk.”
Matthews, who did not realize his mic was on, was caught saying, “Did you see her walk? Runway walk. My God, is that good” while covering the Indiana primary for the network.

His co-host, Brian Williams, noticing Matthews’ comments that were clearly meant to be private, cut to a commercial break.
Matthews continued, “I could watch that runway show.”
A rep for Melania Trump told Variety in response to Matthews’ comments: “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.”
