Fox News host Tucker Carlson mispronounced the name of Joe Biden’s running mate, Kamala Harris. Our nation’s top journalists are on the case. “Tucker Carlson’s mangling of Kamala Harris’s name was all about disrespect,” wrote Margaret Sullivan of the Washington Post.
“Here’s the thing: It’s really not that hard to get Harris’s name right,” Sullivan wrote. Getting it wrong, of course, is disrespectful at best and violently racist at worst. That goes without saying.

Regrettably, prominent liberal pundits and politicians have been mispronouncing Kamala’s name for a while now. Numerous libs who claim to oppose bigotry, such as Biden, former president Barack Obama, and even Harris’s newly minted chief of staff, Karine Jean-Pierre, have committed violent racism by mispronouncing her name in public.
It’s KA-ma-la Harris, folks. “KA” as in “cop.” Have some respect.
