MSNBC’s breaking news anchor Brian Williams has had quite the few weeks with deplorable and head-scratching moments, but he again couldn’t help himself on Thursday night while covering the terrorist truck attack in Nice, France by apologizing to Hardball host Chris Matthews for having “just plowed over the normal hour of airtime” for him. 

Williams was transitioning from NBC News Trump campaign correspondent Katy Tur providing a brief updated on Donald Trump’s veepstakes news when the disgraced ex-NBC Nightly News admitted that “the beat goes on there in politics” before making the ill-timed toss to Matthews for some thoughts before All In host Chris Hayes took over.
