- Harris arrived in Ghana on Sunday and left on Wednesday: She has now arrived in Tanzania, the second country on her three-nation tour, ahead of Zambia.
- Politico gushed about Harris’ “deviation from the prepared remarks,” saying she is “less guarded, relaxed and seems lighter on her feet.”
Kamala Harris has been derided by conservatives for her gushing political profile charting her three nights in Ghana, with one calling the fake report ‘hilarious’ and another mocking her giddy rhetoric.

Politico said the vice president is “significantly less guarded, relaxed and seems lighter on her feet.”
In the article – titled: “Harris has found a foothold and a cheering crowd, halfway around the world from Washington.” The author described the enthusiastic reception she received and the warm welcome.
