On June 10th, during a Fox and Friends segment discussing the president's upcoming summit meeting with North Korea's Kim Jong Un, host Abby Huntsman had a handsome slip of the tongue when she called Trump a dictator. "I called both President Trump and Kim Jong Un a dictator". The former White House communications director stated that Trump was a "disruptive risk-taker" who is willing to "break what would be the usual bonds of not going to a meeting like this". "Did Abby Huntsman just say "THE MEETING BETWEEN TWO DICTATORS"..."

Later in the segment, Huntsman apologized for the apparent mistake. His non-reaction prompted even more mirth on social media.

The comment came as vision played of Trump arriving in Singapore for his summit with the North Korean leader.

Kim Jong-un has echoed President's Trump's belief that you can know how complex global negotiations on highly technical matters of nuclear technology will go from the outset if you rely on touch and feel.

Let's see how this meeting with the two dictators, *cough* I mean leaders goes.

Abby Huntsman is the daughter of USA ambassador to Russia Jon Huntsman. I'll never claim to be a flawless human being.

She also tweeted a second apology Sunday afternoon. He can take that nation, with those great people, and truly make it great.

Many described Huntsman's words as a "Freudian slip", while others claimed the network, known for its favorable coverage of Trump, had finally told "the truth".

"This is history", Huntsman said.
