Fans cringe as Today’s Dylan Dreyer suffers awkward on-air moment with Biden

SILLY DILLY

NBC and MSNBC journalist Jacob Soboroff also showed his approval as he responded with three clapping emojis.

Dreyer later shared a clip of her family swaying from side to side on the stairs as they bopped to the hit ATC hit All Around the World (La La La).

One stunned fan: “How you even have the strength to do this after the day you’ve had!

“You did a fabulous job sitting in for Al. Love you both.”


Dreyer told her hundreds of thousands of social media followers that it was an “honor” to cover the event.

Roker has been part of the team covering the Parade since 1995 before missing it this year.

Fans were left devastated by his absence but he did manage to tune into it on TV and received a shout-out from Kotb and Guthrie.

During the parade, Dreyer appeared to be involved in an awkward encounter with President Joe Biden.

‘AWKWARD ENCOUNTER’

She told viewers: “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.”

On the other end of the line was the commander-in-chief and first lady Jill Biden.

Dreyer seemed to wait an agonizing 17 seconds to receive a reply from the president amid connection issues.

She said: “I don’t think I can hear you. Can you hear me, Mr. President?”

The president and first lady were then overheard muttering something inaudible over the phone, while Dreyer awkwardly waited.

She said: “Hello? Happy Thanksgiving, Mr. President. Are you there?”

Biden responded: “We’re here” before letting out a laugh.

The Bidens revealed their holiday plans, saying they planned to eat dinner with their family and then perhaps take a walk on the beach.

Twitter users rushed to comment about the awkwardness of the call.
