Republican senator mocks Kamala Harris' name at Trump rally

Republican senator mocks Kamala Harris' name at Trump rally

A spokesperson for Mr.

Outraged over the mispronunciation of Democratic vice-presidential nominee Kamala Harris' name by a Republican Senator from Georgia, her supporters launched an online campaign with the hashtags "MyNameIs" and "IstandwithKamala".

Harris' press secretary, Sabrina Singh, responded directly on Twitter, writing, "Well that is incredibly racist". He has since repeatedly attacked the senator on the basis of her race and gender, as she takes the spotlight as the first Black and South Asian woman to appear on a major party's presidential ticket.

Chair of Georgia's Democratic Party, Nikema Williams went a step further when she suggested that Perdue owed voters in the state an apology for what she also contended was a deliberate mispronunciation of the Democratic vice presidential nominee's name. US Senator Harris from California is the daughter of immigrants from India and Jamaica. "Vote him out and vote for @ossoff". "Years. THREE. Do better". Harris' name as "Kamala-mala-mala-whatever" at a Trump rally.

Perdue's communications director, John Burke, lamely responded to criticism about the GOP senator's Friday stunt by saying "Senator Purdue 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 & her endorsed candidate Jon Ossoff are pushing".

Sen. David Perdue, Georgia Republican, unwillingly put the chicken company sharing his surname on the defensive Saturday by ruffling feathers during a Trump rally the night before.

Ossoff, who staged an unsuccessful bid for Congress in a 2017 special election, also tweeted a fundraising message over video of Perdue's comments and said in another tweet, "Senator Perdue never would have done this to a male colleague".

"He knows her name and he knows how to say it", Kalla said, adding: "His disgusting performance today is nothing more than a desperate dog whistle from a losing politician who was already caught running anti-Semitic ads against Jon Ossoff". Or a white colleague.

U.S. President Donald Trump said on Thursday, Oct 15 he was willing to support a comprehensive COVID-19 coronavirus relief package larger than $1.8 trillion to make a deal with Democrats and get a bill passed. A spokesman for Purdue said he had no such intention. "#IWillVote bc Joe & Kamala know our diversity is our strength", tweeted Congresswoman Judy Chu.
