In the short clip, Democrat Shapiro is heard railing against President Trump as the boy walks in texting on his phone.
When Jonah looks up from his device, he realizes his father is conducting an important video chat and quietly backs out of the room with a cheeky grin on his face.
The video is made all the more humorous by the fact Shapiro had set up his computer so that an impressive wall of books would appear in his background.
The fact that Jonah crashed the interviewed quickly shattered Shapiro’s carefully-crafted image of professionalism.

It’s not the first time that a father has had his live TV interview crashed by his children.
Back in 2017, Professor Robert Kelly was discussing politics during a BBC interview conducted from his home office.
The father hilariously had his TV appearance interrupted by his two young kids who came running into the room followed by their mother who whisked them out of the frame.
