Skip to comments.Obama Apologized To California's Kamala Harris For Calling Her The 'Best-Looking Attorney General

President Barack Obama called California Attorney General Kamala Harris from Air Force One Thursday to apologize for calling her the "best-looking attorney general in the country."
The remarks, made during a fundraiser in California yesterday, sparked a swift backlash among political commentators. New York magazine's Jonathan Chait called the remark "disgraceful," and Los Angeles Times columnist Robin Abcarian characterized it as "more wolfish than sexist."
Clearly, Obama's handlers recognized they had a problem on their hands, and Obama called Harris a few hours later to apologize, according to White House Press Secretary Jay Carney.
You know, they are old friends and good friends and he did not want in any way to diminish the attorney generals professional accomplishments and her capabilities," Carney told reporters at the White House press briefing today, according to The New York Times.

Yep, now, not only she but the whole world knows she's on Jugears' AGILF list. Hey Michelle, check out your boy's updated ILF list.............
Boy, apoligize to a lady for telling her she is pretty? Lord, don’t try that one at home!
Harris looks like Obama ...
My initial thoughts too...he was looking in a mirror!
I suspect the problem was with Michelle and Obama and not Obama and the liberal press. He just ignores them. Michelle cannot be ignored.
Why is it wrong to notice her beauty? Jealosy, simple jealosy. Liberals are losers and cannot stand their betters. That’s why organizing, joining and controlling are their favorite pastimes. They cannot win by merit and the fact is she’s pretty and prettier than our IL AG who is also incompetent, so pretty would be a plus.
When we decide to just be an American. There ought to be a hyphen tax!
I wish FR had something like a "LIKE" button..
That mole on her chin looks like a syphilis chancre.
Now I know he’s a fag.
I don’t care for her views but, that wouldn’t stop me from buying her a drink.
She’s dang’d purdy.
I’d never apologize for calling out beauty.
He was being overly solicitous
But being a Rat and all you simply can't be sure where she's been.Better use some double strength Saran Wrap.
An obvious reference to the senior Senator (in office for 3 months) from my state.I guess you didn't hear the final outcome...it's been irrefutably proven that she's 1/512th Indian and,therefore,was entitled to affirmative action consideration under Harvard Law School's "diversity" guidelines.
Yes, she is attractive, but is he saying that other AGs are not attractive? Why did he feel the need to point it out in the first place?
Sorry Obama, Clinton probably got there first...
Yeah, I apologize. You know what I mean, doncha?
The Ugandan Giant should be in the White Hut.
