Obama apologises to Kamla Harris for his sexist remarks: WH ByLalit K Jha

US President Barack Obama has apologised to Kamla Harris, the California Attorney General, for his comment in which he described the Indian-American as the best-looking attorney general of America - which many here alleged was a sexist remark.

Obama called Harris last night to "apologise" for both his "remarks" and the "distraction" that it caused for one of the brilliant attorney generals of the country, White House Press Secretary Jay Carney told reporters.
