President Biden and First Lady Jill Biden convened on NBC’s coverage of the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade on Thursday, but talks got off to a rocky start.
NBC’s Dylan Dreyer greeted the President at the beginning of the segment, but the two sides struggled to connect for about 20 seconds.
“Can you hear me, Mr. President?” Dreyer asked.
“We’re here,” Biden replied.
“Oh, I was very concerned that this call was not getting done,” Dreyer said.

The president and first lady eventually established a clear rapport and were able to talk about their annual Thanksgiving trip to Nantucket, Massachusetts, where Biden met and thanked emergency workers.
After connections returned to normal, the president said, “I want to say thank you to the firefighters and the police officers, the first responders. They never take a break.”

“And God certainly bless our troops,” said Jill Biden.
Biden continued, “By the way, we’re going to be talking to some of our troops here and abroad later in the day. I hope everyone remembers. We miss them every single day.” “God bless our soldiers indeed!”
