Republican Senator David Perdue repeatedly mispronounced the name of his Senate colleague and Democratic vice presidential nominee Kamala Harris while speaking at President Trump’s rally in Georgia on Friday night. The senator quickly drew criticism for his comment, which Harris’ press secretary described as “incredibly racist.”
As Perdue ended his remarks at the event, he referred to Harris as “KAH’-mah-lah? Kah-MAH’-lah? Kamala-mala-mala? I don’t know. Whatever.”
Sounds like he got it right the first time, so he’s in trouble for his second and third attempts. A campaign spokesperson for Harris called Purdue’s remark “incredibly racist.”

Don't they realize it is easy to mispronounce a name that only one person out of a hundred million people have. I mean I never knew it was a person's name untill I heard about Kamala Harris.

They are running out the clock. This is the moment journalism can redeem itself or sink further

Well, if they are not gonna talk about Hunter, there is a huge news void they have to fill with something else. Guess it’s good that’s the worst thing about a Republican they could come up with in mid-October.

Mispronouncing Harris’ name was the big “racist” takeaway from Trump’s rally. Will President Trump come out and condemn Perdue as a white supremacist?
