Oh God!': Pundits Were in For a Major Surprise When They Got a Call on Live TV

"I would really like a peaceful Christmas."


Politicos Dallas and Brad Woodhouse — brothers who work on opposite sides of the aisle — were in for a big surprise Tuesday morning when they appeared on C-SPAN to debate bipartisan politics.

The two were visibly stunned when their mother, Joy Woodhouse, called into "Washington Journal" to deliver a lecture about their incessant political bickering, proclaiming, "I would really like a peaceful Christmas."

"Oh God, it’s mom!" Dallas, a Republican, proclaimed, as both he and his Democratic brother Brad expressed surprise, taking turns hiding their faces in embarrassment during the live segment.

"I disagree that all families are like ours. I don't know many families that are fighting at Thanksgiving," Joy proclaimed. "I was very glad that this Thanksgiving was the year that you two were supposed to go to your in-laws."

She said she's hoping the dueling brothers — who spent time away and with their wive's families for Thanksgiving — get their political debating and banter out of their system before they head home to North Carolina to spend Christmas with her and their father.

"I would really like a peaceful Christmas and I love you both," she said.

Host Steve Scully, who said that the call-in wasn't planned, proceeded to ask Joy what it was like to raise Dallas and Brad. Her response? "Well, it hasn't been easy."

Watch the comical call-in unfold at the 14:15 mark below:


It's possible, of course, that the call was planned or that the brothers knew about it beforehand, though that can't be known for certain.

Dallas and Brad Woodhouse are the subjects of a documentary titled "Woodhouse Divided," which showcases their complex — yet close — relationship as they navigate different ends of the political spectrum.
