In media news, Fox News host Tucker Carlson lashed out Tuesday at his guest, Democratic campaign adviser Richard Goldstein, who corrected his mispronunciation of Kamala Harris’s name.
Tucker Carlson: “So what?”
Richard Goodstein: “That’s how it is: Kamala.”
Tucker Carlson: “OK. But that’s” —
Richard Goodstein: “OK, well, I think, out of respect for somebody who’s going to be on the national ticket, pronouncing her name right is actually not — it’s kind of a bare minimum. That’s all.”
Tucker Carlson: “OK. So, I’m disrespecting her by mispronouncing her name unintentionally. So it begins. You’re not allowed to criticize Kamala Harris or Kamala Harris or whatever.”
Richard Goodstein: “Kamala. No, no, no, it’s Kamala.”
Tucker Carlson: “Because it’s — Kamala Harris.”
Richard Goodstein: “No, it’s not 'whatever.'”
The exchange came just hours after President Trump also mispronounced Senator Harris’s first name.
President Donald Trump: “But as far as Kamala is concerned, she’s a big tax raiser.”
During the same news conference, President Trump described Senator Harris as a “nasty woman.” On Wednesday, Trump made a broad, racist appeal to white women voters, tweeting, “The 'suburban housewife' will be voting for me. They want safety & are thrilled that I ended the long running program where low income housing would invade their neighborhood. Biden would reinstall it, in a bigger form, with Corey Booker in charge!”
