Fox News host calls Trump a 'dictator'

Adjust Comment Print

"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". As she was talking about the upcoming summit between the US president and the North Korean leader, she candidly described Trump and Kim's summit as a meeting between "two dictators". Her guest and former White House communications director Anthony Scaramucci didn't catch it.

Neither Huntsman nor Scaramucci acknowledged the mistake, though the Mooch quickly confirmed that Trump was a "disruptive risk taker" immediately after. His non-reaction prompted even more mirth on social media. Trump, an avid Fox & Friends viewer, has yet to comment.

President Trump is a close follower of the show, and regularly tweets about it.

Responding to the controversy Sunday afternoon, Huntsman, who just so happens to the be the daughter of U.S. Ambassador to Russia Jon Huntsman, called on people on Twitter to "move on to things that actually matter". "I did not mean that my mistake, so I apologise for that." said Abby. "As you know on live TV, sometimes you don't always say things perfectly", she said. He can take that nation, with those great people, and truly make it great.

Another person chimed in, writing, "We wouldn't be human if we were 'perfect'".

"I'm having a full bilateral meeting with the US President on equal terms without preconditions after threatening to nuke the USA".
