Obama apologises for looks comment

Barack Obama's had to apologise for complimenting the looks of California's Attorney General.

The US President has called Kamala Harris the best looking Attorney General in the country.

US correspondent Richard Arnold told Newstalk ZB's Mike Hosking the comment hasn't gone down well in some quarters.

"The comment in an official setting telling a woman she is beautiful struck many as an off note, the president has apologised and Miss Harris has said she has spoken to the president since and strongly supported him and did not say if she thinks he is cute."
