An MSNBC host had an unfortunate on-air mix-up while reporting on Bill Cosby’s sexual assault trial Tuesday.
MSNBC host Steve Kornacki used former President Bill Clinton’s name rather than Cosby’s while reporting on Cosby’s arrival at a Norristown, Pennsylvania, court, where the entertainer faces allegations of sexual assault.
“We’re going to begin with that breaking news we told you about at the top,” Kornacki said. “Right now out of Pennsylvania, Bill Clinton is set to arrive at a suburban — excuse me, Bill Cosby is set to arrive at a suburban Philadelphia courthouse any moment now for a key hearing in his criminal sex assault case.”
Cosby’s preliminary hearing is part of the criminal case in which he faces allegations that he sexually assaulted a woman after drugging her.
Several women have also accused Clinton of sexual misconduct, allegations presumptive Republican nominee Donald Trump has noted in recent interviews and at campaign events.
