Fact checked

What Does Mike Huckabee Rhyme With?

Fox News anchor Megyn Kelly is feeling heat today for introducing guest Mike Huckabee as Mike F*ckabee last night.  According to the Huffington Post:

Fox News host Megyn Kelly made an unfortunate linguistic error while introducing Mike Huckabee on her show, “The Kelly File,” Monday night.

“Joining me now, former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee, who is the host of ‘F***a’ — of ‘Huckabee,'” Kelly said, immediately correcting her letter substitution. Huckabee cracked a smile on screen, but Kelly had already moved on.

Later in the segment, Kelly addressed her mistake.

“Something else that happened on the program is also getting a lot of attention on Twitter,” Kelly said, “Including this tweet from some nice man named Sean who said, ‘Megyn, you’re a delight to watch and gave a stoic performance after your slip up with Gov. Huckabee’s name.’ I thought I was stoic too — I have a heart of a 12-year-old boy.”

Well, one thing is certain: The show must go on.
