Fox News Host Apologizes After Accidentally Calling Trump A 'Dictator'

As U.S. President Donald Trump exited Air Force One in Singapore for his scheduled historic summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong-Un, Fox & Friends anchor Abby Huntsman committed what could very well be her biggest Freudian slip on air. "I called both President Trump and Kim Jon Un a dictator".

Huntsman, whose father is Jon Huntsman, the ambassador to Russian Federation and former Republican presidential candidate, was discussing Trump's arrival with Anthony Scaramucci, one of Trump's short-lived White House communications directors.

The slip-up appeared to go unnoticed by Scaramucci, who responded "yeah" and went on to describe Trump as a "disruptive risk-taker". He headed there right after causing a big ol' scene at the G7 summit, reportedly to impress his possible new ally.

Fox & Friends presenter Abby Huntsman in a selfie posted on her Twitter account to promote the show's coverage of the Trump-Kim summit. "He's got an opportunity, the likes of which I think almost-if you look into history-very few people have ever had. Everyone makes mistakes. We're all human". That's because, this time, The Mooch wasn't the one to insert foot into mouth. "And I think it's going to work out very well". "My mistake, so I apologise for that".

Her gaffe still took off on Twitter.

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