Harris Misspeaks While Visiting Korean Demilitarized Zone

Vice President Kamala Harris visited the Demilitarized Zone dividing the Korean peninsula on Thursday as part of her trip to Asia.

Harris clearly meant to refer to the Republic of Korea -- South Korea's official name -- and she is hardly the only politician to commit such a slip.
