Kamala Harris calls late Ruth Bader Ginsburg the ‘Notorious B.I.G.’

It was a “Notorious” error by Kamala Harris.

The vice presidential nominee had a Joe Biden moment – referring to the late Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg as the “Notorious B.I.G.”

“She was part of our culture. Yes, we wear those Notorious B.I.G. T-shirts with a lot of pride, but since she passed, there are parents reminding their children that she helped their lives,” Harris said during a speech about President Trump’s nomination of Judge Amy Coney Barrett to the Supreme Court.

The California Democrat mistakenly uttered the nickname of Brooklyn-born rapper Biggie Smalls rather than referring to Ginsburg as “The Notorious RBG,” as she was popularly known late in her long career on the bench.

“FWIW, Harris’s prepared remarks did say ‘Notorious RBG’ and for anyone not in the loop, that’s a reference to shirts like this that use the Notorious BIG aesthetic,” politics reporter Emily Larsen wrote on Twitter, where she shared images of Ginsburg apparel on sale.

Harris’ gaffe comes after she called Tupac Shakur the “best rapper alive” during an interview at the NAACP’s virtual convention Friday — even though the legendary emcee has been dead for more than two decades.

“Best rapper alive?” CNN commentator Angela Rye asked Harris.
