SEOUL (THE KOREA HERALD/ASIA NEWS NETWORK) - Host Abby Huntsman of Fox & Friends slipped up during a live segment on Sunday morning (June 10), where she accidentally referred to US President Donald Trump as a dictator.

At first, everything appeared to be flowing smooth as Ms Huntsman was covering Mr Trump's arrival in Singapore for his summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.

 

But as she posed a question to former White House communications director Anthony Scaramucci, something unexpected caught the ears of the viewers.

"Anthony, talk to us about this moment, I mean, this is history, regardless of what happens in that meeting between the two dictators, what we are seeing right now, this is history," Ms Huntsman said as footage of Mr Trump coming out of Air Force One at Paya Lebar Air Base in Singapore played.

Twitter flooded with disbelieving comments.

"Wait a minute and rewind that dvr," Twitter user Rob Bennett wrote, "Did Abby Huntsman just say 'THE MEETING BETWEEN TWO DICTATORS.'"

"Nothing to see here, Fox & Friends just casually calling Trump a dictator now," wrote another user.

 

Ms Huntsman apologised later on the show, acknowledging her mistake.

She also tweeted a second apology in the afternoon, "I'll never claim to be a perfect human being."

"We all have slip ups in life, I have many :) now let's all move on to things that actually matter."
