DescriptionGeorgia Sen. David Perdue is drawing outrage after appearing to mock Democratic vice presidential nominee Kamala Harris' name while warming up the crowd ahead of a rally for President Donald Trump speech on Friday night.

Perdue, who has been a Senate colleague with Harris for over three years, was railing about Senate Democrats at the president's Macon, Georgia, rally before flubbing Harris' name and then going on to mock her.

"The most insidious thing that Chuck Schumer and Joe Biden are trying to perpetuate, and Bernie [Sanders] and Elizabeth [Warren] and Kamala -- Kah-ma-la, or Kah-mah-la, or Kamala-mala-mala, I don't know, whatever."

The moment drew immediate condemnation on social media.

Democrat Jon Ossoff, who is running against Perdue, wrote "we are so much better than this" in sharing a clip of Perdue's mispronouncing Harris' name.
