Dr Irwin Redlener, a paediatrician and adviser to New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio, was talking on the news show Deadline: White House with Nicolle Wallace on October 1 when he was interrupted by his grandson.
The channel also shared the clip on its Twitter handle, which shows Redlener discussing the rise in Covid-19 cases in New York City when his grandson walks into the room.
“Oh boy,” Dr Redlener says, as he tries to push the boy out of the frame.
However, the boy then starts singing and keeping popping into the frame next to his grandfather, prompting both the anchor and guest to burst into laughter.
