    excuse me = you can leave now?

    Hi,

    In House of Cards, Frank was discussing something with his underling in his office, when someone told him, "Sir, (State) Secretary is here".

    Frank said, " Thank you. Send her in", and then told his underling," Excuse me".

    After that, his underling left.


    I think "excuse me" is a polite way to say" you can excuse yourself now" or "you can leave now" for such a situation, right?

    Thank you!
