The media is all abuzz because President Barack Obama said California Attorney General Kamala Harris was the “best looking attorney general in the country”.
The unexpected comment ruffled the feathers of some observers and caused a commotion on social media such as Twitter. Obama set up the remark with a heap of more conventional praise for Harris, 48, who campaigned for him last year. “She is brilliant and she is dedicated and she is tough,” Obama said.
What came next was a compliment, but what was heard around the world was taken as and considered an uncharacteristic slip by the smooth-talking President Obama. The President’s critics immediately took it to Twitter where some Twitter users blasted his quip as “awkward” and even “sexist.”
I guess just about any and every thing that comes out of President Barack Obama’s mouth is easily misconstrued and twisted, by his “haters and constituents”.
President Obama is a politician is all and he’s learned how to play the game well and that includes schmoozing when he has too.
Do you think the President’s compliments about the attractive CA Attorney General were awkward and inappropriate? Sound off!
