During Tuesday's edition of MSNBC's NewsNation, host Tamron Hall had to admit her audience clearly doesn’t pay attention to basic political facts. While covering a Rick Santorum speech at a Tea Party event in Arizona Hall said the following: "I don't know if this is a joke or not but some people, many people have Tweeted asking why does he have ash on his forehead? Asking if he's Catholic. Yes." [See video below. MP3 audio here.]
One would think that when a network mocks Santorum's religious beliefs and calls him extreme on a daily basis that their viewers would know that he is a devout Catholic. Apparently that is too much to ask of the average MSNBC viewer.
Such statements show the ignorance of the left, and even Tamron Hall had to embarrassingly correct her viewers on Ash Wednesday about the Presidential candidate's faith.
