Fox's Tucker Carlson might come across as a smarmy prick who went to elite prep schools [he did] and attended Ivy League schools [he didn't], but he's still fairly stupid, as evidenced here.

Fox News’ primetime personality Tucker Carlson had many Twitter users scratching their heads on Friday night with his pronunciation of the name of Canada’s capital city, Ottawa.
Carlson pronounced it “Ah-Tah-Wa” in a segment criticizing Democratic vice presidential nominee Kamala Harris. The anchor suggested the California senator didn’t know American history because she spent some of her teenage years north of the border.

Canadians took it in stride, used to ignorance from Fox News.
"I'm sorry, I cant say the letter T"
"You mean F"
"That's right, T."
"Why don't you say it with a ph?"
"What, say Tucker with a Ph?"
"That's got it!"
"Phucker? Phucker! Hey! Never thought of that. What a silly Tucker I am!"

That’s ok @TuckerCarlson if you had pronounced it correctly it would have confused your oh so smart viewers. And by the way, here in Canada, we pronounce Tucker with an “F”. 🇨🇦 https://t.co/Os9xTvULMO

With a helpful primer from a local politician on how to pronounce the capital of Canada.
As a city councillor in A-Ta-Wa... Proud to be in the best city in North America, even if it is actually pronounced Ottawa.
