Tucker repeatedly mispronounces VP Harris’s name: ‘We don’t mean to beat up on …’

Fox  News’s Tucker Carlson likes to purposefully mispronounce the names of people in power. During his Wednesday monologue on “Tucker Carlson Tonight,” the host referred to Vice President Kamala Harris as “Carmela” more than once.

“The Democratic Party has run out of gas,” he began.

“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 stated. “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.”

He then set up a clip wherein Kamala Harris equated mail-in voting with ordering fast food at a drive-thru.

“Here’s Carmela struggling to explain what mail-in ballots are. Now you’d think she would understand mail-in ballots, given that mail-in ballots are why she has a job,” Carlson explained.

“I think that voting sometimes is usually putting in your order; this is what you want. So when people stood in those lines for hours, when they sat at their kitchen table for hours, figuring out how they were gonna fill out their ballot to vote by mail, when they drove by those drop-boxes with their kids in the back seat, patiently waiting to drop off that ballot, they were putting in an order.” the VP said.

“We don’t mean to beat up on Carmela Harris, who’s obviously our favorite for the Democratic nomination next cycle, but she’s a perfect distillation of everybody in power in the Democratic Party,” the Fox News host said.

“Every word that emerges from Carmela Harris’s mouth is a recycled talking point that’s been run through a banality machine to remove the slightest hint of anything interesting or challenging or relevant or meaningful,” Carlson continued.

He surmised, “So no wonder Democrats are unpopular. They have nothing to offer. They haven’t updated their files. They believe it’s 2005. You see this in foreign policy particularly. They’re living in their heads in a world in which the U.S. wields the most powerful military, backed by the world’s strongest economy and can do whatever it wants just by telling other people to obey.”

“Let China know that we back Taiwan, and the entire 75-year-old dispute over that island would be settled forever. They really believe that. They have no idea of this country’s relative place in the world order because they don’t know anything about reality as it stands right now,” he concluded.

Folks on Twitter had mild reactions to the story.
