On Fox News’ morning show “Fox & Friends” Wednesday, a hilarious typo on the ticker referred to Jared Kushner — President Trump’s senior advisor and Jewish son-in-law — as “Jared Kosher.”

The gaffe was documented on Twitter by Mediaite editor Jon Levine.

The typo comes amid an FBI investigation into Kushner’s meetings with Russian figures. Perhaps the Fox employee responsible for the ticker was subtly suggesting a new career path for Kushner — mashgiach, anyone? — or perhaps he or she had imbibed one too many “mazel tov cocktails” the night before.

While many Twitter users laughed off the error, some saw something more sinister making comments like "subtle anti-Semitism" and "Pepe and Friends," refering to so called alt-right symbol Pepe the Frog.
