Harris’ true height often comes as a surprise to her supporters. One Twitter user wrote: “Kamala Harris only 5’2″? Man she got some tall a** energy.”

Although VP Harris may be smaller in stature than her male predecessors, her height has no impact on her presence. One supporter stated that “she seems like she’s 10 feet tall.”
