Is President Obama Wrong For Calling Kamala Harris Attractive?

President Obama couldn’t help but comment on Kamala Harris’s good looks during his speech at a Democratic National Committee fundraising luncheon on Thursday, but it seems like America is being a little to sensitive about the compliment.

I’m not sure when it happened, but apparently we have officially entered a universe were a woman isn’t supposed to be attractive, talented and intelligent all at the same time; and if she is you better not notice it or compliment her on it.

During the fundraising lunch in Atherton, Calif. President Obama apparently missed the same memo we did because after he complimented Harris on her good looks, some of his most dedicated supporters bashed him for it.

The Huffington Post reports:

After speaking about the need to address climate change and energy challenges, the president gave a “shout-out” to Harris, according to the pool report, “noting a couple of times that she is, objectively, easy on the eyes.”

“She’s brilliant and she’s dedicated, she’s tough,” Obama said. “She also happens to be, by far, the best-looking attorney general … It’s true! C’mon.”

While the crowd laughed at the President’s comment, MSNBC host Mika Brzezinksi found nothing humorous about it.

Despite being a strong supporter of Obama she claimed the comment was “a mistake.”

Well the hosts of “Fox and Friends” are defending the President and claiming that America is getting a bit too sensitive.

The Huffington Post writes:

The hosts of “Fox and Friends,” however, wholly dismissed the controversy on Friday. “Yeah, big deal,” Gretchen Carlson said. “Yeah, she is. She does happen to be good lookin’. I just think we’ve come to a place in society where everyone is so ultimately sensitive that you can’t say anything anymore. She is! She’s pretty! So what?”

“She is pretty,” agreed co-host Steve Doocy, joking, “If anybody’s going to be upset, it should be Eric Holder.”

“When you see an attractive woman who happens to be very professional and smart, wouldn’t it be great to include she is very attractive in the rundown of attributes?” co-host Brian Kilmeade added.

There is nothing wrong with a woman of power being attractive, and there is certainly nothing wrong with her being complimented on both her talent and her good lucks.
