This is…Embarrassing

CNN’s Kyra Phillips had an unfortunate mic mishap today during President Bush’s live remarks from New Orleans. Her mic was left on and when she went to the ladies’ room, her bathroom conversation was heard overtop of the president’s speech. Hot Air has the video and audio.

Here’s the transcript from Newsbusters.

Kyra Phillips: “-assholes-Yeah, I’m very lucky in that regard with my husband. My husband is handsome and he is genuinely a loving, you know, no ego-[unintelligible] you know what I’m saying. Just a really passionate, compassionate great, great human being. And they exist. They do exist. They’re hard to find. Yup. But they are out there.”

[unidentified woman]: ‘We’ll see. He’s going to come, you know, he’s set for an extended visit-[unintelligible]”

Phillips: “I mean, that’s, that’s how you figure it all out, those extended visits. [laughter]”

[unidentified woman]: “Yeah, but my mom, I think she really likes him.”

Phillips: “Mom’s got a good vibe? Good.”

[unidentified woman]: “Yeah, my brother’s the one that-[unintelligible]”

Phillips: “Brother-of course, brothers have to be, you know, protective. Except for mine. I’ve got to be protective of him.”

[unidentified woman-unintelligible]

Phillips: “Yeah. He’s married, three kids, but his wife is just a control freak.”

[unidentified woman #2]: “Kyra.”

Phillips: “Yeah, baby?”

[unidentified woman #2]: “Your mic is on. Turn it off. It’s been on the air.”

Catch her comments about her sister-in-law? Thanksgiving is going to be very awkward this year.
