MSNBC’s Hardball host Chris Matthews suggested June 6 that Huma Abedin, wife of Rep. Anthony Weiner, may be “partly responsible” for his behavior, according to Mediaite.   Weiner had stated in a June 6 press conference that Abedin was aware of his online sexual encounters between several women before his marriage.

However, Matthews’ two co-panelists immediately rebuked this suggestion, Mediaite reported.

Chris Matthews: “But maybe she’s party responsible if she knew about it?”
Democratic strategist Steve McMahon: “She’s not responsible.”
Republican strategist John Feehery: “She’s not responsible. Come on, that’s ridiculous.”

Fox News political analyst Kirsten Powers criticized Matthews in a June 7 tweet reading:

“Just read that chris matthews said that maybe Weiner’s wife was partly to blame?! What is wrong w Matthews?”
