<p>MSNBC&rsquo;s breaking news anchor Brian Williams has had quite the few weeks with deplorable and head-scratching moments, but he again couldn&rsquo;t help himself on Thursday night while covering the terrorist truck attack in Nice, France by apologizing to <em>Hardball </em>host Chris Matthews for having<strong> &ldquo;just plowed over the normal hour of airtime&rdquo; </strong>for him.&nbsp;</p>

<p>Williams was transitioning from NBC News Trump campaign correspondent Katy Tur providing a brief updated on Donald Trump&rsquo;s veepstakes news when the disgraced ex-<em>NBC Nightly News</em> admitted that<strong> &ldquo;the beat goes on there in politics&rdquo;</strong> before making the ill-timed toss to Matthews for some thoughts before <em>All In</em> host Chris Hayes took over.</p>
