Al Sharpton Apparently Unsure Canada is a Separate Country


First appeared at PoliNation.
Crack MSNBC anchor and geography expert Al Sharpton may have forced the Saturday Night Live comedy skit writers to revise their scripts again for this weekend when he self-parodied during last night’s broadcast covering the shootings in Canadian Parliament. Possibly unsure about the name of the capitol of Canada, Sharpton turned to CBC reporter Chloe Fedio in Ottawa and clearly asked her “What’s the latest tonight in Iowa?” Ms. Fedio, herself a Canadian, was so shocked and flustered by the question that she laughed nervously before stating the name of the actual city where she was reporting, repeating it clearly several times during her statement, as if pronouncing it for a class of children. Hat tip: Weasel Zippers.
