Fox News host sorry for calling Trump, Kim 'two dictators'

"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".

'I called both President Trump and Kim Jong Un a dictator.

Then, as she chatted with former White House communications director Anthony Scaramucci, Huntsman referred to the leaders as "two dictators", which threw the Internet into a frenzy.

"This is history we are living", Huntsman said. Scaramucci didn't say anything about her word choice, instead praising Trump for being a "disruptive risk-taker".

Later in the segment, Huntsman apologized for the apparent mistake.

Fox & Friends airs on Fox News, a conservative 24-hour news channel created by Australian Rupert Murdoch.

"I'll never claim to be a flawless human being", she wrote. "What we are seeing right now, this is history".

It will be the first-ever meeting between sitting USA and North Korean leaders.

Huntsman's slip of the tongue went unnoticed by Mr Scarramucci, but not by those on Twitter.

Trump also appeared hopeful about the Summit on Saturday, tweeting out about the meeting, "we have a chance to achieve a truly wonderful result for North Korea and the World". He can take that nation, with those great people, and truly make it great.
