#TwoDictators may sound like the name of a play that was robbed at the Tony Awards last night, but the story behind this now trending hashtag is somehow even more hilarious.
Here’s the kicker: it was said by Fox News host Abby Huntsman!
Attempting to talk up Trump and Jong-Un’s meeting in Singapore on Tuesday as one for the history books, the Fox and Friends commentator referred to the rival egomaniacs as “two dictators,” telling White House communications director Anthony Scaramucci:
“Regardless of what happens in that meeting, between the two dictators, what we are seeing right now, this is history.”
Oops! Huntsman apologized for the slip-up later on the show, but by that point Twitter was already having way too much fun making “Two Dictators walk into a bar…” jokes.
