Biden phone call to Thanksgiving parade broadcast begins with 20 seconds of confusion: 'Can you hear me?'

President Biden and First Lady Jill Biden called NBC's coverage of the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade Thursday, but the conversation got off to a rocky start.
NBC's Dylan Dreyer greeted the president at the start of the segment, but the two parties struggled to connect for about 20 seconds.
"Can you hear me, Mr. President?" asked Dreyer.
"We're here," Biden replied.
"Oh, I was so worried that call wasn't going to get through," Dreyer said.
