Megyn Kelly Accidentally F-Bombs Mike Huckabee’s Name on Fox News Show The Kelly File

At least she recovered well! Megyn Kelly dropped a bomb on her show this week — an f-bomb, that is. The Fox News standout, 43, was introducing former Governor Mike Huckabee on Monday, Nov. 10, when she had an unfortunate slip of the tongue.

“Joining me now, former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee, who is the host of F–ka–, of Huckabee, right here on the Fox News Channel,” the Kelly File host began, instantly correcting her mistake and moving on. “He’s also a former Republican presidential candidate.”

Huckabee, for his part, smiled a little at the flub but let it pass without further mention. It was Kelly herself who eventually brought it up later in the show.

“Something else that happened on the program is also getting a lot of attention on Twitter, including this tweet from 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 Governor Huckabee’s name,'” she read (via The Hollywood Reporter). “I thought I was stoic, too — I have the heart of a 12-year-old boy.”

She also acknowledged it during a segment on White House adviser Valerie Jarrett. “They say she is not above keeping a ‘blank’ list — you know, starts with an ‘s,'” Kelly said, before joking, “I’ve already sworn once on the program, so I don’t even know why I’m bothering.”
