So, we're really doing this again?

Fox News anchor Tucker Carlson went down a familiar road Monday (November 15) after suggesting Vice President Kamala Harris "isn't really from this country."

"The one thing we know for sure about Kamala Harris is we should all be very, very grateful to have her because she's historic for reasons that no one ever explains," Carlson said, sarcastically omitting the fact that she's the first woman VP, and the first Black and South Asian person to hold the office.

"But there's a lot we don't know about Kamala Harris. Most people probably don't know she really grew up in Canada, where she went to high school," Carlson continued. "She's not from this country in that sense, or she's certainly also from Canada."

"Why haven't we heard that?" he said.

Kamala Harris was born and raised in San Francisco, California and attended a high school in Montreal after her mother, Shyamala Gopalan Harris, took a job as a teacher and cancer researcher there.

By Carlson's own logic, he isn't "really from this country" either since he's also a Bay Area native and has reportedly talked about attending boarding school in Switzerland.

And this isn't the first time Carlson has brought up Harris' time in Canada. Last year, he suggested the Vice President doesn't know American history because of where she went to high school, questioned if she can claim being Black, and more.

He's continued purposely mispronouncing her name and spent time on the air this week combing through the VP's dating history and claims she had dated "powerful men" to move upward in her political career.
