She is also a mother, and one of her sons adorably interrupted an interview live on MSNBC on October 9, 2019. Kube’s son walked up to the set as she was discussing Turkey and Syria.
He reached up to grab his mother’s attention and was heard saying, “Mommy,” Kube smiled and explained to viewers, Excuse me, my kids are here! Live television before finishing the report.
The clip has quickly gone viral, attracting more than one million views on Twitter within a few hours. Kube later told NBC, Breaking the news in Syria didn’t line up with preschool drop-off, so he and his twin brother were with me.
