Tucker Carlson is a fierce critic of Kamala Harris.
Harris brings all the ridicule on herself with her bizarre behavior and embarrassing attempts to speak in public.
And now Tucker Carlson found himself in hot water for calling Kamala Harris this name.
Carlson mocked Harris as a perfect fit for the current leadership structure of the Democrat Party.
Alluding to Joe Biden’s obvious cognitive decline Carlson remarked that Harris – even though she is just 57 years old – speaks like someone suffering from dementia and fits in with the tribe of elders that currently runs the Democrat Party.
Joe Biden is 79.
Nancy Pelosi is 82.
House Minority Leader Stenny Hoyer is 83.
House Majority Whip James Clyburn is 82.
“The Democratic Party at this point is a cartel that exists only to perpetuate itself and the elderly mediocrities who run and benefit from it,” Carlson told viewers. “All of them. Carmela Harris is only 57 years old. She’s a child by the standards of her party, but she still talks like a dementia patient, slowly and incomprehensibly.”
Harris then played a recent clip where Kamala Harris embarrassed herself by fumbling through a speech on the importance of voting by mail.
But what stood out was Carlson calling Kamala Harris “Carmela” Harris.
Carlson did so a second time making clear this joke was no accident saying that “Carmela” Harris was still his pick to win the Democrat Party presidential nomination in 2024.
“We don’t mean to beat up on Carmela Harris, who’s obviously our favorite for the Democratic nomination next cycle, but she is a perfect distillation of everybody in power in the Democratic Party,” Carlson stated.
This is not the first time Carlson caught heat for mispronouncing Harris’ name.
Carlson did so in 2020 when Joe Biden first picked Harris as his running mate.
Democratic Party strategist Richard Goodstein took Carlson to task during an interview for mistakenly mispronouncing Harris’ name implying there was something sinister or even racist afoot.
Carlson – understandably – took offense to that suggestion.
“So I’m disrespecting her by mispronouncing her intentionally? So it begins. You’re not allowed to criticize Ka-MAL-a Harris, or KAM-a-la… Look, I unintentionally mispronounced her name, but I love the idea that she’s immune from criticism. So let me restate my question, because on this show, nobody in power is immune from criticism,” Carlson explained.
Tucker Carlson is the successor to Rush Limbaugh in terms of the most prominent voice in the conservative movement.
Limbaugh would often provoke liberals using humor and demonstrate the absurdity by being absurd.
In this case, Carlson is taking a page from the Limbaugh playbook and deliberately provoking liberals by making a joke out of Kamala Harris’ first name.
