Pennsylvania Attorney General Josh Shapiro was explaining Donald Trump’s failure to interfere with ballots during a live TV interview at his home Friday when his son accidentally wandered into camera range with his eyes glued to his cell phone.
When the boy realized he had slipped into a television interview, Shapiro’s son froze with a look of shock, then he v-e-r-y carefully backed out the door he had entered.
It was exactly the comic relief needed by nervous voters everywhere.
It was also the latest of a series of kids hilariously interrupting a parent’s moment on TV.
“I’m taking his phone away for 24 hours,” Shapiro deadpanned on Twitter following the goof up.
Other eagle-eyed viewers also appreciated the toy U.S. Postal Service truck and a tiny Count van Count figure just behind Shapiro’s head on his bookcase.
But it was Shapiro’s son who won viewers’ hearts. They appreciated the change of pace in these nerve-wracking times — along with the quirky, reassuring peek at another family, thanks to COVID-19 stay-at-home interviews.
