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.

Previously, former President Jimmy Carter also met his North Korean counterpart, Kim Il Sung - the grandfather of Kim Jong Un.

"Anthony, talk to us about this moment", she continued, speaking to guest Anthony Scaramucci, former White House communications director.

She apologized on her show and on Twitter as critics described her as making a "Freudian slip". "Regardless of what happens in that meeting between the two dictators". "My mistake, so I apologize for that".

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

The anchor apologised later in the show.

She corrected herself later in the broadcast, saying: 'As you know on live TV sometimes you don't always say things perfectly.

The two leaders are staying at separate hotels during the summit, with Kim opting for the St Regis and President Trump choosing the Shangri La. "Everyone makes mistakes. We're all human".

A majority of people, however, were less willing to forgive and forget.

"Now let's all move on to things that actually matter", Huntsman said in a tweet.

Seemingly sensing Hunstman's slip, Scaramucci opted to brush the comment aside, opting instead to give the USA president some praise.
