There’s a phenomenon in presidential politics that can be called the “dictator dance.” A Democratic commander-in-chief will issue executive orders and make unilateral decisions, followed by Republicans yelling “dictator!” Then when a Republican POTUS takes over, he does the same, followed by Democrats claiming he’s being a dictator. Nobody really gets hurt.

Leave it to Fox News to screw it all up. Bigly.

In today’s clip, comedian Jimmy Kimmel addresses a brain-dead blunder by Fox News anchor Abby Huntsman, who described the Trump-Kim Jong-un nuclear summit in Singapore as a “meeting of two dictators.” Uh-oh. Looks like Trump’s strongman style (even more like a dictator than a typical President) has left enough of an impression on the Fox team to cause Freudian slips.

Jimmy’s response (at the 3:51 mark) is priceless.
