Oh ffs, Barack. Really? Really? You don’t know better than this?
Instead of leaving the Bay Area Thursday after what would have normally been a quiet two-day fundraising trip, President Obama faced some criticism for calling California’s Kamala Harris “the best-looking attorney general in the country.”
Obama’s comments came at the second of two fundraisers in Atherton Thursday and began with praise for Harris’ performance as attorney general.
“You have to be careful to, first of all, say she is brilliant and she is dedicated and she is tough, and she is exactly what you’d want in anybody who is administering the law and making sure that everybody is getting a fair shake,” Obama said. “She also happens to be by far the best-looking attorney general in the country.”
Actually no. You have to be careful to, first of all, talk about her as you would talk about anyone you consider a professional colleague as opposed to someone you’re flirting with, and leave it at that. You don’t clear your throat by saying “yes, yes, she’s good at her job” so that you can rush on to say she’s hawt.
