Fox and Friends’ Abby Huntsman says North Korean summit between ‘two dictators’

Fox & Friends co-host Abby Huntsman seemed to slip up Sunday while discussing the upcoming summit between President Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, calling it a meeting of “two dictators.”

She later apologized on the air, but that didn’t stop the gaffe from taking over Twitter, sparking ire from the right and jokes from the left.

Huntsman and “Fox & Friends” guest Anthony Scaramucci, who was infamously fired as White House communications director after just 10 days in office, chatted about the highly anticipated summit during the show Sunday.

“This is history,” Huntsman said over video showing Trump arriving in Singapore ahead of Tuesday’s meeting with Kim.

“Regardless of what happens in that meeting between the two dictators, what we are seeing right now ― this is history,” she continued.

Scaramucci brushed right past Huntsman’s apparent gaffe and instead offered praise for Trump’s foreign policy strategy.

“He’s a disruptive risk taker,” Scaramucci said. “He’s willing to break what would be the usual bonds of not going to a meeting like this.”

Huntsman later corrected herself on the show.

“As you know on live TV, sometimes you don’t always say things perfectly,” she said. “I called both President Trump and Kim Jon Un a dictator. I did not mean to say that. My mistake, so I apologize for that.”

Twitter apology:

Apologized on the show. I’ll never claim to be a perfect human being. We all have slip ups in life, I have many 🙂 now let’s all move on to things that actually matter. https://t.co/k2hGjZcHRB
