    Ainsley Earhardt, one of the hosts of “Fox & Friends,” made a mistake on national television when she recalled the United States defeating “communist Japan” during World War II.

    The major slip up happened when the 41-year-old TV personality was reacting to New York Governor Andrew Cuomo’s comment claiming that America was “never that great,” according to the Huffington Post.

    You know, we defeated communist Japan, radical Islamists. We ask our men and women to go overseas to fight for our country and sacrifice so much for our country so we can be the land of the free, the land of the brave,” Earhardt said.

    We’re the most generous country in all of the world. Yes, we have our faults, but because of this country our world is definitely a better place. We are great,” she continued.

    At the end of her statement, her co-host Steve Doocy tried to swoop in to save the day by saying “communism AND Japan.” But one Twitter user found the failed attempt to be hilarious.

    Her misinformed history was further ridiculed by other Twitter users in the thread.

    Here’s what other people are saying on Twitter:

    During World War II, the United States allied itself with Russia, a former communist country, to defeat Germany and Japan.
