A host on the Fox News channel slipped up.
According to a report by Newsweek, Fox & Friends Abby Huntsman referred to President Donald trump as a dictator during a segment on Sunday.
During the broadcast on Trump’s preferred news network, Huntsman interviewed former White House communications director Anthony Scaramucci about the summit between Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.
“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, narrating footage of Trump arriving in Singapore. “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.”
The slip went ether unnoticed or purposefully ignored as Scaramucci played his role in answering Huntsman’s questions on the meeting that is to take place between the two leaders. Huntsman would acknowledge her words later on in the episode, apologizing: "On live TV sometimes you don’t always say things perfectly,” she said, adding that she “did not mean to say that.”
Ahead of his arrival, spoke with optimism about the pending meeting in question following a conference eon the G& summit.
"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 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."
