US President Barack Obama has apologized to California Attorney General Kamala Harris for making inappropriate remarks about her during a fundraiser event. Obama called Kamala Harris “by far the best-looking attorney general”.
California Attorney General Kamala has now accepted Obama apology. “The Attorney General and the President have been friends for many years,” Harris spokesman Gil Duran said in a statement. “They had a great conversation yesterday and she strongly supports him.”
Obama in the event said: “She’s (Kamala Harrois) brilliant and she’s dedicated, she’s tough,. “She also happens to be, by far, the best-looking attorney general … It’s true! C’mon.”
After these remarks many demanded that apology from US President Obama and according to analysts complimentary comments about a female politician’s physical appearance can diminish her accomplishments.
It is very strange to see that Obama apologized quickly after his remarks against California Attorney General, however US took a long time in apologizing to Pakistan on Salala attack in which 26 Pakistanis soldieries were killed by NATO forces.
