Chris Matthews noticed a kind of tic that Donald Trump seemed to develop in an interview with NBC's Savannah Guthrie. On Tuesday's "Hardball," Matthews counted up the number of times Trump said "excuse me" as he tried to deflect a question. That number? 18. Matthews helpfully played each "excuse me" for his viewers.

"Wasn't that Steve Martin's old line?" Matthews joked.
