GOP Sen. Perdue Mocks Pronunciation of Kamala Harris’ Name at Trump Rally


Senator David Perdue (R- GA) spoke at Donald Trump’s rally Friday before the president and fired up the crowd talking about what would happen if his opponents win.

“The most insidious thing that Chuck Schumer and Joe Biden are trying to perpetrate, and Bernie and Elizabeth and Kamala — Kah-ma-la or Kah-mah-la or Kamalamalamala, I don’t know,” he said, mockingly pronouncing his Senate colleague Kamala Harris’ name.

Perdue was immediately blasted on social media, including from his opponent Jon Ossoff:

UPDATE — 7:57 pm ET: The Perdue campaign has responded in a statement provided to Mediaite saying, “Senator Perdue simply mispronounced Senator Harris’ name, and he didn’t mean anything by it. He was making an argument against the radical socialist agenda that she and her endorsed candidate Jon Ossoff are pushing, which includes the Green New Deal, Medicare-for-all, raising taxes, and holding up COVID relief for the people of Georgia.”

Have a tip we should know?
