Donald Trump’s rally in Georgia on Friday evening went full racist when the state’s Republican Sen. David Perdue, working in a competitive reelection marketing campaign, lobbed a disgusting assault on Democratic vice presidential nominee Kamala Harris by knowingly mispronouncing and mocking her identify.

It got here when the Georgia senator was slamming varied Democratic leaders, together with Joe Biden, Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren.

“Essentially the most insidious factor that Chuck Schumer and Joe Biden try to perpetuate, and Bernie [Sanders] and Elizabeth [Warren] and Kamala — Kah-ma-la, or Kah-mah-la, or Kamala-mala-mala — I don’t know, no matter,” Sen. Perdue stated, according to USA TODAY.

Responding to the quick backlash, Sen. Perdue primarily hid behind an announcement from his communications director, who claimed the senator “merely mispronounced Senator Harris’ identify, and he didn’t imply something by it.”

The response from the Perdue marketing campaign is laughable, after all. All voters should do is roll the tape to know precisely what the Republican senator was doing.

As MSNBC’s Kyle Griffin said on Twitter, “Senator Perdue ought to apologize. He shouldn’t have a communications staffer cowl for him with an apparent lie. He didn’t ‘merely pronounce’ Harris’s identify. It was deliberate. And it was racist.”

It must also be famous that Perdue has served with Kamala Harris within the U.S. Senate for 4 years and sits together with her on the Senate Funds Committee. He is aware of how one can pronounce her identify.

This was nothing however racist pandering from a politician who knew it could hearth up the MAGA crowd in Georgia.
