PA's Attorney General Responded After His Son Walked Into His MSNBC Election Interview, And It's Pretty Hilarious

*Backs away slowly.*

As the election turned into a real nail-biter, I know I'm not the only one who was basically glued to my TV.

I honestly dunno how steve is still going im bout to die

However, with people still working from home, some mistakes were bound to happen.

The interview on MSNBC started fairly normally — or, at least as normal as things can be right now.

PA Attorney General Josh Shapiro says the Trump campaign has a predictable pattern: “They make a crazy claim, they tweet about it, they amplify it … sometimes a lawsuit follows and every time … it gets dismissed." He adds: “Look, the campaign is over.” #election2020

However, things went awry when Josh's son walked into frame.

At first, the teen seemed oblivious...

...before realizing what he'd done...

...and then he slowly backed away.

Truly a mood.

And, if Twitter is anything to go by, people were very into it:

I AM DEAD at Josh Shapiro’s kid just wandering into frame on MSNBC

That time the #Pennsylvania AG Josh Shapiro’s son walked into the shot and reminded us all parents are in the same boat in 2020! 😂

Some also noticed what appeared to be a message hidden on Josh's bookcase:

A+ to PA Attorney General Josh Shapiro. Count the mail votes.

Thankfully, Josh himself seemed to find the whole thing pretty funny:

I’m taking his phone away for 24 hours. 😂 https://t.co/1OYI8N4LwV

And even responded to comedian Leslie Jones' comments about his clock:

.@Lesdoggg, I can take the kid or the cuckoo clock out of the shot — but not both. Your choice https://t.co/gqcYj2Zhro

Thanks to Josh and his son for what was a much-needed smile!
