Video footage from 2001 shows daily tabloid television host Montel Williams showing off new girlfriend and former politician Kamala Harris, who at the time was best known for being the ex-girlfriend of San Francisco mayor Willie Brown.
Though Harris has not provided much, if any, commentary on her relationship with Williams when it has intermittently resurfaced in the news, footage from 2001 shows the couple beaming as Williams shows off Harris to the press and instructs them how to pronounce her unusual name.
“Kamala Harris, Kamala Harris,” Williams repeated, emphasizing her first name.
The relationship, which has not received significant coverage by most of the corporate media, was referenced in early January 2021 by Fox News host Tucker Carlson, who said, “Kamala Harris, who by the way is the ex-girlfriend of Montel Williams and will be described that way forever after on this show…”

Harris, 56, was most notably involved in a relationship with the then-mayor of San Francisco Willie Brown, before she was 30 and while Brown was 60.
The beaming smile shown by Harris during her relationship with Harris has not disappeared during her political career, nor has her apparently boundless joy. In march, the Vice President burst into hysterical peals of laughter while discussing the plight of parents who are too poor to send their children to school:
Vice President Kamala Harris abruptly broke into uncontrollable peals of hysterical laughter while discussing the plight of parents who cannot afford to send their children to school. Harris’ outburst was met with apparent bewilderment by the audience, which clapped awkwardly instead of joining Harris in her high-pitched cackle at the plight of American families.
“More people are seeing that yeah, affordable child care is a big deal,” Harris said. “More parents are seeing the value of educators when they had to bring their kids…” She then trailed off into uncontrollable peals of high-pitched laughter.
Harris’ laughter drew comparisons to Joaquin Phoenix’s character in the film Joker (2019), who bursts into maniacal laughter at inopportune moments due to a medical condition.
