Appearing on Fox & Friends Sunday to discuss President Donald Trump's upcoming Singapore summit with North Korean dictator Jim Jong Un, Mooch got interrupted by program host Abby Huntsman when footage of de-planing Trump appeared on screen.

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

The anchor was accompanied by guest and former White House communications director Anthony Scaramucci, who was unable to catch Abby's epic goof-up.

Scaramucci brushed right past Huntsman's apparent gaffe and instead offered praise for Trump's foreign policy strategy. Carrying with them hopes to end seven decades of hostility and the threat of a nuclear confrontation, the meeting between the two firebrand leaders will be watched closely by people across the world.

Fox News host and daughter of former Utah Governor, Jon Huntsman Jr., accidentally called President Trump a "dictator".

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

"Apologized on the show".

Ms Huntsman later apologised on air for her error, stating: "I do want to point out that earlier, as you know sometimes on live TV sometimes you don't always say things perfectly".

"I'll never claim to be a flawless human being", she wrote. "I didn't mean to say that, my mistake, I apologize for that".

Catching a solid Freudian slip is fun no matter what.

"This gaffe is probably the most honest thing ever said in the program's history", one person tweeted.
