Liberals are triggered today after last nights episode of Tucker Carlson Tonight on Fox News. Tucker repeatedly butchered Kamala Harris’s name.
It was absolutely hilarious, and he does the same thing every time with Don Lemon, where he makes Lemon’s last name sound french, and it’s hysterical. However the no fun police, or as I like to call them “Democrats” are super mad today.
Tucker was as many know talking about Harris becoming Joe Biden’s running mate. He took shots at her shoddy record, character, among other things. Throughout the monologue, the Fox host mispronounced the California senator’s first name as “CAMel-eh” multiple times, and liberals are outraged.
The Washington Post, Medialite, and countless liberal pundits are beside themselves Wednesday, saying it’s a blatant show of disrespect.
After Carlon finished his opening monologue, which is the highest rating segment on cable TV by the way, the media won’t tell you that, he then welcomed former Clinton adviser Richard Goodstein.
Goldstein couldn’t wait to open his trap and corrected Carlson by Carlson, explaining the correct way to say the first name of the Democratic vice presidential nominee.
“Tucker, can I say one quick thing. This is something that will serve you and your fellow hosts on Fox. Her name is pronounced comma, like the punctuation mark, lah. Kamala. I’ve heard every — that’s how it is.”
Carlson’s response is hilarious.
“OK,” Carlson responded and then shook his head. “So what!”
Goodstein wouldn’t let it go.
“I’ve heard every — that’s how it is,” Goodstein continued, still trying to correct Carlson. “I think out of respect for somebody who’s going to be on the national ticket, pronouncing her name right. It’s kind of a bare minimum.”
Carlson, who began laughing as Goodstein spoke, shot back:
“So I’m disrespecting her by mispronouncing her name unintentionally?” he asked, before pivoting to a snarky counter-attack. “So it begins, you’re not allowed to criticize Comma-lah Harris or Camel-eh Harris or whatever.”
“Comma-lah. No, no, no, it’s not whatever,” Goodstein said, pointing out that she only pronounces her first name one way.
“OK, look I unintentionally mispronounced her name,” Carlson conceded, before again mischaracterizing Goodstein’s attempt to simply get the Fox News host to say her name right. “But I love the idea that she’s immune from criticism.”
The two moved on but then just 53 seconds later, Carlson again mispronounced Harris’ first name wrong during a back-and-forth about the sexual assault claims against Biden. That prompted Goodstein to immediately but firmly restate her full name, as he became even more triggered.
A minute later, Carlson mispronounced her name again.
“Name three things that Kamala Harris sincerely believes. Issues on which she will not change your view, policy issues.” And again, during his answer, Goodstein tried correcting Carlson again on Harris’ name.
Then, after two more minutes, Carlson for a third time, mispronounced her name again before the segment came to an end.
Carlson: “I’m not going to attempt to pronounce Senator Harris’ name ever again because I don’t want to be accused of being disrespectful, which I’m not.”
Tucker continues to be the best political show in America to watch, and he has the left in Tatters trying to keep up with him. What are your thoughts on his “mispronunciation” of Kamala Harris’ name?
