UPDATE: Later in the broadcast, Fox & Friends host Abby Huntsman apologized for the slip. "On live TV sometimes you don’t always say things perfectly,” she said. Huntsman further added that she “did not mean to say that.”
Fox News is President Donald Trump’s favorite TV network, and Fox & Friends is his favorite show, which makes this recent slip up by Fox & Friends host Abby Huntsman so hilarious. During a segment about Trump’s forthcoming meeting with Kim Jong Un, Huntsman accidentally referred to Trump as a “dictator,” according to Newsweek.
The Freudian slip took place as Huntsman interviewed former White House communications director Anthony Scaramucci about the summit. “There is the president of the United States, Donald Trump, about to walk down those [Air Force One] stairs, stepping foot in Singapore as we await this historic summit with the North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un,” Huntsman said as footage of Trump arriving in Singapore played in the background. “Anthony, talk to us about this moment. 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.”
Scaramucci gave some long-winded answer about Trump being a risk taker, and either didn’t notice the slip-up or just happened to be thinking the exact same thing.
According to CNN, Trump landed in Singapore Sunday morning, ahead of his Tuesday meeting with the North Korean leader. He headed there right after causing a big ol’ scene at the G7 summit, reportedly to impress his possible new ally. During an impromptu conference about the G7 summit, Trump shared his optimism about the upcoming meeting with Kim.
"I feel that Kim Jong Un wants to do something great for his people, and he has that opportunity. And he won't have that opportunity again. It's never going to be there again," Trump said on Saturday. "He's got an opportunity, the likes of which I think almost—if you look into history—very few people have ever had. He can take that nation, with those great people, and truly make it great. So, it's a one-time—it's a one-time shot. And I think it's going to work out very well."
Let’s see how this meeting with the two dictators, *cough* I mean leaders goes.
