David Perdue mispronounced the name of vice presidential nominee Sen.

Republican Senator David Perdue mocked Kamala Harris, his Senate colleague and the Democratic vice presidential nominee, by repeatedly mispronouncing her name at a Georgia rally for President Donald Trump. "Kamala? Kamala-mala-mala? I don't know, whatever" while speaking to a crowd of the president's supporters in Macon, and was immediately accused of deliberately butchering and mocking her name in a racist appeal. "Whatever." The audience laughed.

According to the Quinnipiac poll, when it comes to favorability ratings, likely voters have a positive view of Ossoff 46 - 36 percent, and a mixed view of Perdue with 43 percent saying favorable and 46 percent said unfavorable.

Trump frequently attacks Harris - the first Black and Indian-American woman to be nominated to join a major party ticket - calling her a "monster" and referring to her by her first name. Democrats say the mispronunciations smack of racism. "Kamala Harris' name at Trump rally".

Not only members of the Republican Party, but some Democrat members including former President Barack Obama have also pronounced his name incorrectly.

Harris' spokeswoman, Sabrina Singh, responded to Perdue's remark in a tweet: "Well, that's incredibly racist". "Vote him out and vote for @ossoff". 3rd years. THREE. Do better. Perdue's campaign, tweeted that the senator simply mispronounced Sen.


"He didn't mean anything", wrote Black.

"He was making an argument against the radical socialist agenda that she and her endorsed candidate Jon Ossoff are pushing", Burke added.

Perdue previously came under fire for an anti-Semitic move - depicting Democratic opponent Jon Ossoff with a digitally altered nose in an ad that was later removed from Facebook by Perdue's campaign.

Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee spokesperson Helen Kalla called the response from Perdue's campaign a "trash cleanup that literally no one believes" in a Friday tweet, later noting that Perdue had served along Harris in the Senate since 2017. "And everyone knows it".

"He owes Georgians an apology for his offensive display", said Democratic Party of Georgia Chairwoman Nikema Williams.
