The two had taped a segment about Presidents Barack Obama and George W. Bush and Hillary Clinton traveling together on Air Force One to South Africa for Nelson Mandela‘s memorial. Not long after the Q&A started, Baldwin stopped Tapper mid-sentence, gave some instruction about how it should play out, then started over.
That happens all the time in TV newsrooms with pre-taped interviews. But usually the “bad” take is left on edit room floor. Not this time. WATCH:
For Baldwin’s part, she was quick to address the flub on Twitter.
Ughh. Flub. #ithappens
