Fox News host gets roasted for suggesting Toronto is not in Canada

Fox News commentator Laura Ingraham — known for, among other things, being a supporter of racist political extremists and a proponent of disinformation about COVID-19 — became the laughing stock of Twitter on Friday.

The reason? She used a (false) article about new measures being taken in Toronto churches to somehow champion Donald Trump in the upcoming U.S. election.

Ingraham, who has hosted the eponymous Laura Ingraham Show on the conservative news network for close to 20 years, tweeted "Will Joe Biden do more to protect religious liberty than Donald Trump? Not a prayer" alongside an article titled “City of Toronto Bans Catholic Churches From Administering Holy Communion" early this morning.

The tweet, ostensibly intended to demonstrate how religious liberty in America is somehow being threatened, quickly went viral as users started grilling Ingraham for her apparent lack of geographic knowledge and for completely failing to read a news story before sharing it and using it to argue a point.

Though there is also a city named Toronto in Ohio, the piece makes it clear by the third sentence that it is referring to Toronto, Ontario.
