'Fox & Friends' Host Calls North Korea Summit A Meeting Of 'Two Dictators'

Abby Huntsman's apparent slip-up about President Donald Trump set Twitter ablaze Sunday.

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

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.”

Still, Twitter users were hung up on Huntsman’s choice of words, referring to them as some of Fox News’ most honest reporting about Trump.

This story has been updated to include additional comments from Huntsman.
