We're all guilty of falling for the odd fake Twitter account every now and then, but when you're broadcasting live to millions of Americans, it's a bit of a big deal.

The Morning Joe show's production team apparently knew the tweet was going to be mentioned as they had a graphic ready, but nobody spotted the error.
We're sure it was early in the morning and nobody was really awake yet, but how do you even begin to believe that the North Korean government would stand up for Donald Trump?
The parody account was ecstatic to receive the exposure, albeit accidentally:
