Fox News host Tucker Carlson once again found himself making headlines this week after reacting angrily to a pundit correcting his pronunciation of the name of Joe Biden’s new running mate.

Discussing Biden’s announcement of California senator and former presidential rival Kamala Harris as his prospective vice president on Tuesday evening, Carlson was interrupted by Richard Goodstein, a political consultant and guest on his prime-time show Tucker Carlson Tonight.

“Tucker, can I just say one quick thing because this is something that will serve you and your fellow hosts on Fox News well,” Goodstein interjected. “Her name is pronounced ‘Comma’... like the punctuation mark... ‘Comma-la’, OK?”
