Former Adviser to Hillary Clinton and Democratic strategist Richard Goodstein, appeared on Tucker Carlson’s show where he scolded the popular Fox News host for mispronouncing Kamala Harris’ name wrong.
Richard Goodstein: Her name is pronounced “Comma” like the punctuation mark “la. Seriously, I’ve heard every sort of bastardization of that. That’s how it is. “Comma-la.’”
Tucker Carlson: OK. So what?
Richard Goodstein: I think out of respect for somebody who’s going to be on the national ticket. Pronouncing her name right is actually kind of a bare minimum.
Tucker Carlson: So I’m disrespecting her by mispronouncing her name unintentionally? So it begins,” Carlson said with a grin before mispronouncing the senator’s first name two more times. “You’re not allowed to criticize ‘Ka-MAL-a’ or ‘KAM-a-la’ or whatever it is—”
Richard Goodstein: No, no, no. It’s not “whatever”
Tucker Carlson: Look, I unintentionally mispronounced her name…on this show, nobody in power is immune from criticism. Our political leaders must be held to account — that’s our job.
