MSNBC's 10 a.m. hour went a bit off-track on Friday when anchor Chris Jansing had a coughing fit in the middle of a segment.

Jansing had just introduced Florida congressman Ted Deutch, who was speaking via satellite, when she started coughing. The next few seconds were filled with silence and and Jansing's coughs.

"I hope you're okay, Chris," Deutch said.

"Thank you. Frog in my throat," she replied, clearing her throat. She tried to resume the interview, but had to cut to a commercial break.
