When Fox News host Megyn Kelly read that her former colleague Mike Huckabee allegedly went off on “trashy” women at Fox News for cursing, she assumed he was talking about that one time she accidentally called him “Fuckabee” on-air.

“Megyn, you’re the only one who’s used that word in front of me at Fox like that,” Huckabee joked Wednesday night on “The Kelly File.”

The potential Republican presidential candidate made a splash Friday on the Des Moines-based “Mickelson in the Morning” radio show when he said he was taken aback by New Yorkers’ use of “gratuitous profanity” while he worked on his now-defunct Fox News show.

Many who listened to that interview thought Huckabee was referring to his female Fox News colleagues. Huckabee told Kelly that the women at Fox were “lovely and delightful.”

“Well I do have some news for you before I let you go,” Kelly ribbed her former colleague. “We’re not only swearing. We’re drinking, we’re smoking, we’re having premarital sex with birth control before we go to work, and sometimes boss around a bunch of men.”

“Oh, I just don’t want to hear that,” Huckabee responded.
