Gayle King's Response To Fox News' Robin Roberts Mix-Up Is Pure Fire

Gayle King's Response To Fox News' Robin Roberts Mix-Up Is Pure Fire

"Let me tell, you, Robin", Johnson said, "there's a lot more evidence that hasn't been presented yet, and does not support the version he gave". Well, Ms. King had a classy clap back.

"Yes I did, I said that to her", King added to Colbert.

"I emailed Dana, who I don't know, and I said, 'Hi, just wanted to thank you for letting your colleague know that ... we are two different people", she shared with Colbert and his audience.

Gayle King was asked about her reaction to Fox News host Jesse Watters confusing her with ABC's Robin Roberts this week, and the CBS host revealed she mocked the flub in an email to one of Watters' colleagues.

During her appearance on The Late Show Thursday night, the CBS This Morning host talked to Stephen Colbert about the awkward incident, in which Watters was attempting to praise King's recent interview with R. Kelly, who is facing 10 counts of sexual abuse charges.

Dana Perino: That was not Gayle King.

"When he had this emotional outburst, I do question whether or not it was planned, but at the same time I see a man who was cornered", Watters says in the clip shared by Baragona.

The "Smollett fiasco" was a reference to the recent interview of actor Jussie Smollett by Good Morning America's Roberts.

Watters did apologize on-air, saying, "Sorry for Robin Roberts out there, I apologize" and holding up a sign that read "I'm sorry Gayle + Robyn" later in the broadcast.

The interview with the Savages comes after their daughter, 23-year-old Joycelyn Savage, and her friend, 21-year-old Azriel Clary, told King their parents are trying to get cash from Kelly.

Juan Williams: Janet, I, you know. King exclaimed. "It was a 212 number that I didn't recognize, so I thought it was work... and he goes, 'Gayle, it's Elton here.' And I go, 'Elton John?!" This is not me! I'm fighting for my f-ing life!

Fox News mixing up Black people is normal for the conservative network.

King said she didn't expect Kelly to confess his crimes, "but I did think that, on some level, he would have a moment of reflection, he would have contrition".

Fox did issue a soulless apology.
