“It’s not the first time during this campaign that Perdue has been accused of discrimination against a Democrat. Perdue was criticized in June when his campaign was forced to pull a digital ad attacking Ossoff, which showed the Democrat’s nose enlarged, a hallmark of an anti-Semitic trope.”
“Republican Sen. David Perdue mocked Sen. Kamala Harris on Friday, derisively mispronouncing the Democratic vice presidential candidate’s name during a campaign rally in Georgia.”
“Mispronouncing Harris’ first name has become a common attack within the Trump camp. The president routinely does so in a mocking way during his political rallies, even though he has correctly said it in less rowdy settings. Perdue and Harris (D-Calif.) have served together in the Senate since 2017.”
“Sen. David Perdue, at a Georgia campaign rally for President Donald Trump, on Friday appeared to intentionally mock the first name of Democratic vice presidential nominee Sen. Kamala Harris. At the Macon rally, Perdue, R-Ga., pronounced Harris’ name as: “Kamala, or Kamala, Kamala-mala-mala, I don’t know,” with various emphasis on parts of the name, video showed.”
“Perdue in July faced criticism for a digital campaign ad featuring a manipulated picture of Ossoff, who is Jewish, with an enlarged nose. The ad was taken down.”
