Obama calls Kamala Harris “best-looking attorney general”
Sacramento Bee: President Barack Obama was praising the bona fides of California Attorney General Kamala Harris today when he complimented Harris for something unlikely to show up in her campaign platform.
“She’s brilliant and she’s dedicated, she’s tough… She also happens to be, by far, the best-looking attorney general,” Obama said during a Thursday lunch, according to a pool report written by Todd Gillman of the Dallas Morning News.
The president also called Rep. Mike Honda, D-San Jose, “not a real tall guy,” according to a tweet posted by Mike Rosenberg of the San Jose Mercury News.
Obama was in town for a fundraising swing that brought him to Atherton this morning for two Democratic National Committee events. Last night he appeared at an event costing $5,000 a head at the home of Tom Steyer, who spearheaded the push for Proposition 39 but has broken with the Obama administration over the Keystone XL pipeline, and a $32,500 gathering hosted by billionaire Gordon Getty.
Don’t expect anyone in the state run media to call him out on this comment. But if a republican had said this you know it would be front page news. Double standards, the only standards liberals have ever met.
