President Joe Biden and first lady Jill Biden are just like us – they tuned into Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade Thursday morning, like millions of viewers. But unlike the rest of us, the Bidens called Al Roker during the live NBC broadcast.
"Oh my gosh, look at who’s calling," the "Today" show host said, while showing the president's face pop up on his phone.
“My message (to citizens) is after two years you’re back, America’s back,” Biden said on the call. “There’s nothing we’re unable to overcome, Al, and you’re one of the reasons for that, pal. You’re always up. You’re always rooting.”
Roker responded: “Thank you so much. I hope you’re going to continue to watch the parade. Santa is coming. Santa is coming, Mr. President!”
“I’m waiting for Santa,” Biden replied.
NBC News' Andrea Mitchell shared a picture of the sweet encounter on Twitter. The photo shows the first couple smiling in front of the television as they lean into a cell phone held by Biden.

The country music icon shared a rare throwback photo of her and husband Carl Dean on Instagram Thursday: "Happy #Thanksgiving from me and mine to you and yours."
Dean largely stays out of the spotlight, but Parton sharing photos of her elusive husband has sparked praise from fans, who are truly thankful.

In an appearance on “The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson” from 1977, Parton revealed she met Dean the first day she arrived in Nashville, Tennessee, in 1964. The two would end up tying the knot two years later.

The "Jimmy Kimmel Live!" talk show host is losing even his hair to make sure Thanksgiving goes according to plan. On Instagram Thursday, Kimmel shared a photo of himself with burnt hair, writing: "try not to burn your hair and eyebrow off lighting the oven!"
"happy thanksgiving everyone," the comedian wrote.
Artist Lynzy Lab commented: "I can smell this picture."
Kimmel also shared a photo of his turkey and called the finished product "burnt hair-smoked turkey."
Joked aside, the talk show host gave thanks to everyone who donated to St. Joseph Center, a Los Angeles-based nonprofit organization that provides aid to low-income and unhoused people. "thanks to everyone who gave to @stjosephctr - @mmcnearney and I matched your donations to feed 1300 families today - we are grateful that an organization like this exists - let’s do it again for xmas!" he shared.
