GOP Senator Ridicules Kamala Harris’s Name [VIDEO]

USA Today reports:

Sen. David Perdue, R-GA., faced criticism Friday night after appearing to mock and purposely mangle Democratic vice presidential nominee Sen. Kamala Harris’ name at a President Donald Trump campaign rally.

Warming up the crowd in Macon, Georgia, Perdue flubbed his colleague’s name before going on to mock her, saying to a laughing audience, “The most insidious thing that Chuck Schumer and Joe Biden are trying to perpetuate, and Bernie and Elizabeth and Kamala — Kah-ma-la, or Kah-mah-la, or Kamala-mala-mala — I don’t know, whatever.”

Perdue has served in the Senate with Harris for around three years. He also sits with Harris on the budget committee. Harris’ spokesperson Sabrina Singh called the moment “incredibly racist.”
