Chris Matthews wondered aloud on Wednesday whether or not "wife beating" was something that women "really worry about."

Matthews was speaking to fellow MSNBC host Andrea Mitchell—who he called "one of the great feminists of our time"—about the appearance by Joe Biden at an event honoring women's advocates. Earlier, he played a clip of Biden condemning violence against women. When Mitchell brought Biden up again, Matthews jumped in.

"Joe Biden has street cred with these women," Mitchell said. "Is that close to the bone, the idea of wife beating, or beaters?" Matthews said.

"Well, that was part of it," Mitchell replied.

"Yeah, but is that something that women really worry about, men being brutal?" Matthews wondered. "Yes!" Mitchell said.

"At home?" Matthews continued. "In the home?"
