President Obama Apologizes to Kamala Harris for ‘Best-Looking’ Comment

President Obama raised eyebrows last Thursday (Apr. 4) when he referred to California’s Kamala Harris as “the best-looking attorney general” during a Democratic fundraiser. On Sunday (Apr. 7), the Associated Press reports that the POTUS has since apologized to her for the distraction it created.

White House press secretary Jay Carney adds that Obama would never want to diminish Harris’ professional accomplishments, a hurdle most women struggle with in the workplace.

Obama also described Kamala as “brilliant, dedicated and tough” at the same fundraiser.
