Justice Sotomayor Accidentally Makes 'Racist' Move While Swearing Kamala In

Is Sonia Sotomayor a racist? If you’re using leftist logic from only a few months ago, that seems to be the case. In the past, conservatives who mistakenly pronounced Harris’ first name as something other than “Comma-la” were said to be engaging in “racist” behavior, according to numerous leftist outlets.
