Just as even a broken clock is right twice a day, Fox News slips up and says something accurate every once in awhile. Rarely does that accuracy come in the form of reporting on President Donald Trump.
Trump is making enemies with Trudeau and starting a trade war with Canada while going to Singapore to trade notes with Kim Jong-un on how to become a more effective dictator. What a productive Sunday. Our nation was much better off with Trump just playing golf all weekend.

Weekend cohost for Fox & Friends Abby Huntsman fawned over the arrival of Trump in Singapore on Sunday morning as preparations for his meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong un began. Huntsman and her fellow cohosts sat with former almost-Communications Director Anthony Scaramucci, of “Steve Bannon…sucks his own c*ck” fame, to marvel over the great success of a meeting that hasn’t even taken place yet.
‘There is the president of the United States, Donald Trump, about to walk down those [Air Force One] stairs, stepping foot in Singapore as we wait this historic summit with the North Korea dictator Kim Jong-un.’

As Huntsman continued trying to fill in the long wait for something to actually happen on the screen, she asked Scaramucci to describe the moment by saying:
‘Anthony, talk to us about this moment. This is history. We are living — regardless of what happens in that meeting between the two dictators — what we are seeing right now, this is historic.’
Scaramucci plunged right in, bragging that Trump has been a “disruptive” force. He doesn’t seem to get that the world agrees that Trump is disruptive and that is exactly why there is such apprehension around a meeting between a proven murderous dictator and a reality TV show host with skin so thin he can’t handle criticism from Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.
Fox & Friends accidentally said this about the Singapore summit: "regardless of what happens in that meeting between the two dictators."

Huntsman later apologized for the “error,” or perhaps the Freudian slip, she had made.
‘I do want to point out that earlier as you know on live TV sometimes you don’t always say things perfectly, I called both President Trump and Kim Jong Un a dictator. I did not mean to say that. My mistake, so I apologize for that.’
