“Guys, I think I’m getting a phone call? You know, I’m not one to take a phone call during TV — but I think I should answer this one,” the meteorologist said as a marching band processed behind her.
On the other line were President Biden and First Lady Jill, who both seemed to experience connection issues with the call.
“I don’t think I can hear you. Can you hear me, Mr. President?” Dreyer says over the phone with an awkward smile while the cameras are rolling.
The president and first lady are then overheard muttering something inaudible over the phone, with Dreyer left awkwardly waiting.

“Hello? Happy Thanksgiving, Mr. President. Are you there?” the NBC anchor asks until she finally receives a response several seconds later, “We’re here,” Biden replies, letting out a laugh.
To which a relieved Dreyer answered, “I was so worried this call wasn’t going to go through.”
The Bidens went on to reveal their holiday plans, saying they planned to eat dinner with their family and then perhaps take a walk on the beach.
“Well, we’re just gonna have dinner with the family, probably take a walk on the beach,” the first lady noted.

Twitter users couldn’t help but point out the exchange on social media, saying it was an “ultimate grandma and grandpa holiday interaction”.
“The dropped call between Dylan Dreyer and Joe and Jill Biden was the ultimate grandma and grandpa holiday interaction. #MacysThanksgivingParade,” wrote one spectator.
Another person tweeted: “Dylan Dreyer trying to talk to Joe Biden on the phone during the parade is every phone call with my grandad, only my grandad cusses at me.”
Meanwhile, a third parade viewer was seemingly upset he had to sit through the exact and miss Dragon Ball Z’s Goku balloon.
“IM MISSING THE GOKU BALLOON FOR JOE BIDEN AND DYLAN DREYER NOT BEING ABLE TO UNDERSTAND EACH OTHER,” he wrote.
