Oh. Fox News Host Calls Trump-Kim Summit a Meeting of ‘Two Dictators’
On Fox News this morning, Fox & Friends co-host Abby Huntsman had a bit of slip in discussing the U.S.-North Korea Summit when describing the the two leaders, Kim Jong-un and President Donald Trump.
Huntsman was narrating footage of President Trump’s arrival and trying to give the historic context of the meeting when she slipped up and gave an unexpected description. Or at least, unexpected on Fox.
Abby started out fine. “There is the president of the United States, Donald Trump, about to walk down those stairs,” sh said, “stepping foot in Singapore as we wait this historic summit with the North Korea dictator Kim Jong-un.”
It was when she turned to prompt guest Anthony Scaramucci that she made the comment.
“This is history. We are living — regardless of what happens in that meeting between the two dictators, what we are seeing right now, this is history.”
Two dictators? Oh.
For his part, Scaramucci glided past the comment to praise the President as a “disruptive risk-taker.”
Update: Abby Huntsman apologized for the blooper later in the segment. Watch below, via Fox News.
