Here, just a few days before the end of the year, we give you the most embarrassing moment on live TV of 2014.
Pundit brothers Brad and Dallas Woodhouse, who operate on opposite ends of the political spectrum, were guests on “Washington Journal” on C-SPAN Tuesday when host Steve Scully took a call from a viewer.
“We’ll go to Joy, in Raleigh, North Carolina,” Scully said.
“Hey, somebody from down South!” Dallas Woodhouse exclaimed.

“Well, you’re right I’m from down South,” the caller replied, sounding annoyed right out of the gate.
“Oh God, it’s mom,” Dallas said in horror.
“I’m your mother,” Joy Woodhouse confirmed. “And I disagree that all families are like ours. I don’t know many families that are fighting at Thanksgiving.”
As liberal Brad and conservative Dallas began to wither on live TV, their mom laid into them.
“I was very glad that this Thanksgiving was a year that you two were supposed to go to your in-laws,” she said. “I’m hoping you’ll have some of this out of your system when you come here for Christmas. I would really like a peaceful Christmas. And I love you both.”
Scully told viewers that the call “was not planned. She called in on the normal line.”
But he took the opportunity to ask her: “What’s it been like to raise these two boys?”
“Well, it hasn’t been easy,” said mama Woodhouse.
“No truer words have ever been said,” Dallas Woodhouse laughed. “We love you, Mom.”
