Fox News goofed up on graphic —​ and got some ribbing after President Donald Trump retweeted the video of it to his 33.4 million followers.

"West Saved by the Blood of Patriarchs," read the Fox chyron as President Trump spoke during a speech in Poland.

Trump actually stated: "The West was saved with the blood of patriots," according to a White House transcript, the Washington Post reported.

"The memories of those who perished in the Warsaw Uprising cry out across the decades, and few are clearer than the memories of those who died to build and defend the Jerusalem Avenue crossing," Trump said in his speech in Warsaw.

"Those heroes remind us that the West was saved with the blood of patriots; that each generation must rise up and play their part in its defense, and that every foot of ground, and every last inch of civilization, is worth defending with your life."

Post reporter Aaron Blake joked, "I wondered: Is the president who played up his wealth on the campaign trail ("I'm really rich," etc.) suddenly crediting his fellow patriarchs for saving Western civilization?"

"Or maybe Trump is adopting a more feminist tone, cheering the decline of the patriarchy. Down with hegemonic masculinity! But who are these patriarchs whose blood saved the West, anyway?" he mocked.

But he also sympathized with the Fox chyron writer who made the typo.

"It's a tough job to do that in real time," Blake wrote. "But when you mess up, you probably hope the president doesn't use that as the still image in his tweets. Otherwise you might give people the impression that Trump gave a very different speech than he did."

Twitter posters jumped on the joke bandwagon after The Hill tweeted the goof.
