On Wednesday, Megyn Kelly welcomed potential 2016 Republican presidential candidate and former Fox News colleague Mike Huckabee on her show in an effort to clear the air after his assertions that women swearing in the workplace is "trashy."
“Well, I do have some news for you," Kelly said. "We're not only swearing. We’re drinking, we’re smoking, we’re having premarital sex with birth control before we go to work, and sometimes boss around a bunch of men.”
During an interview with Iowa radio host Jan Mickelson, Huckabee had described his shock to hear women using profanity in a professional setting in New York City. Kelly joked that the former Arkansas governor was referring to a slip-up in which she introduced Huckabee as "the host of 'F--kabee.'"
Huckabee directed ire at Politico for an article that alleged he was talking specifically about women at Fox News:

"It was an utterly fabricated lie on the part of the writer at Politico," Huckabee said Wednesday.
Politico later corrected its headline and added a note to the end of the piece.
