’Oh god, it’s mom’: Pundits get berated by mammy live on air for arguing

Brad Woodhouse and Dallas Woodhouse are brothers, one a Democrat, one a Republican. You can imagine the family political arguments at Christmas dinner, right?

’Oh god, it’s mom’: Pundits get berated by mammy live on air for arguing

But in a segment on US political network C-Span, they said their political bickering was probably typical of most families around the holiday season.

The only problem? Mammy was listening, and was nothappy.

Ma phoned in to the show in the caller segment, calling herself Joy, and went in through the regular phone lines - the hosts had no idea.

"I don't know many families that are fighting on Thanksgiving!" she berated them.

Ma's from down south, and tells the host raising those boy's 'wasn't easy'.

But really, she's just hoping for some peace between the factions at Christmas.

"They're both very passionate about what they believe in, and I love that about them; but I hope they just kinda get this out of their system today on your programme" she said.
