Watching hapless politicians bumble, backflip and fudge their lines is one of the true joys of live TV.

But one US pollie was having none of a reporter’s hardline of questioning, simply getting up during the interview and switching the Zoom meeting off.

Republican governor Scott Walker was being interviewed on CNN by news anchor Anderson Cooper.

Cooper questioned Walker on the race riots engulfing the US and Donald Trump’s silence on the recent police shooting of Jacob Blake.

Clearly stumped, the footage appears to show Walker simply get up and switch off his device mid-interview.

“Looks like we lost our signal,” Cooper said when the feed was cut. “We apologise for the signal loss but we appreciate Governor Walker’s time. Sorry. Live television.”

Check it out below:

For his part, Walker later blamed the incident on a technical glitch. A spokesperson for the pollie saying in a statement: “What really happened was the Governor lost audio during the interview and it didn’t come back. He thought the interview was over. A technical snafu that often happens on live TV.”

Not that social media users were buying the excuse. Check out some of the backlash below:
