Rachel Maddow tore into Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney on her Monday MSNBC show for his odd remarks about airplane windows.

Following an emergency landing his wife's plane had to make last week, the governor took a moment on the campaign trail on Monday to comment on her safety.

"I appreciate the fact that [my wife] is on the ground safe and sound," he said. "I don't think she's aware of just how worried some of us were."

Romney continued, "When you have a fire in an aircraft, there's no place to go exactly. And you can't find any oxygen from outside the aircraft to get in the aircraft because the windows don't open. I don't know why they don't do that, but it's a real problem," Romney said.

After running the above clip of the Romneys, producers cut back to Maddow at her desk, seemingly unenthused.

"It's a real problem that the windows don't roll down on airplanes? Is it also a problem that guns don't shoot backwards through the barrel this way? Or that diving boards are only really ever mounted over very deep water? Why don't the windows roll down?" Maddow asked.

She added, "I don't think he was joking because he couldn't possibly be joking about his wife almost being in a plane crash. You can't joke about that, especially with her standing right there," Maddow said. "So has he never seen Goldfinger?"

Watch Maddow's rant in the video above and the "Goldfinger" scene she referred to in the clip below.
