Senator Kamala Harris is amongst the leading contenders for the Democratic nominee for president, alongside former Vice President Joe Biden, Senators Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren, and Mayor Pete Buttigieg from South Bend, Indiana.
There have been two Democratic debates thus far and despite the polls, liberals are divided as to who is the leader to contend against President Trump in 2020.
But you might be surprised that Democratic hopeful Kamala Harris dated this major Hollywood celebrity back in 2001.
The Democratic debates have been wild so far. Every candidate vying for the Democratic nomination has been grilling former Vice President Joe Biden during the first two debates, much to his dismay.
Senators Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren absolutely crushed the other Democratic hopefuls in the first of last week’s debate, while the underdogs absolutely flattened the frontrunners in the second debate.
One of those humiliating moments was from war veteran and Representative from Hawaii Tulsi Gabbard who brought up Harris’ track record as a San Francisco District Attorney and Attorney General of California.
Following the debate, Gabbard tweeted, “Kamala’s entire campaign is based on a lie — that as AG of California, she was a fighter for the oppressed and for criminal justice reform. But her criminal justice record shows that her policies exemplified the worst aspects of our criminal justice system.”
It’s true. Harris locked up over 1,500 people for illegal use of marijuana but later admitted to smoking it in an interview and laughing about it. She also blocked evidence that would’ve likely freed a man on Death Row. Harris also decided not to prosecute against the Catholic Church’s abuse on child rape charges because the church was “too powerful” and “you don’t want to be on the wrong side of the Catholic Church.” Point blank: she’s a hypocrite.
During that time at the San Francisco City Attorney’s Office, she was also dating popular daytime talk show host Montel Williams.
The former couple, who share a nine-year age difference, walked the red carpet together for the 8th Annual Race to Erase MS Gala in Los Angeles in 2001.
During the same time period, Ebony magazine identified Kamala as Williams’ “girlfriend.”
According to the Daily Mail, “Harris was also identified as the mother of Ashley in Jet, forcing the magazine to print a retraction and point out that Ashley’s mother was actually Williams’ first wife Rochelle.”
Montel Williams seemed irked when the new report went viral.
He tweeted, “[Kamala Harris] and I briefly dated about 20 years ago when we were both single. So what? I have great respect for Sen. Harris. I have to wonder if the same stories about her dating history would have been written if she were a male candidate?”

Nobody really cares that they dated but it’s possible that Harris just loves the limelight a little too much.
As a freshman Senator, Kamala Harris made a mark when she grilled Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein in June 2017 over the role he played in the firing of James Comey. She was irate and liberals loved it. Now, she’s one of the Democratic leaders in Congress.
She’s only been a Senator for a little over two years and yet she’s already thinking about the leap to presidency? She’s a sucker for the limelight.
Don’t you think that’s a little problematic?
