Some people go the extra mile and others go the extra mile on their knees!
In a strange interview a staffer of U.S. Secretary of Interior Deb Haaland was caught crawling on the floor during Haaland’s live interview with late night talk show host Seth Myers.
Haaland was completely unaware of the staffer crawling behind her until Myers pointed out to her and said “You have a staffer who fully crawled on the carpet behind you”.
The staffer realized she was caught and then immediately hid behind Haaland’s desk but the staffer couldn’t fool Myers and he quickly interrupted the interview again and said “Sir, we know you’re behind the desk,”.
I can’t stand late night liberal shows but I have to admit this blunder was hilarious.

It's "the greatest thing I’ve ever seen," said the "Late Night" host. https://t.co/KUju7o7aVv

Fox News had more on the story:
A staffer for U.S. Secretary of the Interior Deb Haaland, 60, surely wanted to summon his invisibility cloak on Tuesday night when he was caught on his hands and knees crawling on the floor during Haaland’s appearance on “Late Night with Seth Meyers.”
While explaining her cabinet position and the overall historical significance of her confirmation as the nation’s first Native American cabinet secretary, a man holding camera equipment while on his hands and knees entered the wide frame from the bottom left in an attempt to get out of the way right as Haaland was mid-conversation with the late-night host.
“I am sorry, secretary. I am going to interrupt you real quick,” Meyers interjected when he spotted the suit-wearing man, who popped his head up before quickly ducking back down behind a cherry desk as Meyers called him out.
“You have a staffer who fully crawled on the carpet behind you, and it is the greatest thing I have ever seen,” said the funnyman through a perplexed look while Haaland, who was confirmed as the 54th United States Secretary of the Interior in March in a 51-40 vote, maintained a spry grin.
“Sir, we know you’re behind the desk,” Meyers said drawing the covert cameraman out from his hiding place.
“OK, thank you very much,” Meyers quipped as the man crawled out of view.
“Now, secretary, be honest,” probed Meyers. “Do you know who that man is and are those someone else’s glasses he’s wearing?”
A good sport about the virtual mishap – which has become increasingly common in the pandemic era but nonetheless funny, Haaland responded, “We don’t have people sort of sneaking around, so, yes, I know who that is.”
Things got even more awkward…
Apparently the staffer who was caught crawling was photographer Tami Heinemann who is in fact a woman that just has short hair.
Imagine if a Republican tv host did this, I’m sure cancel culture would be knocking on their door.
Watch Myers admit his mistake on live air.
