President Barack Obama's comments about California Attorney General Kamala Harris' looks Wednesday sparked a sharp divide on Twitter, with some calling the president sexist and others vehemently agreeing with his assessment.

"You have to be careful to, first of all, say (Kamala Harris) is brilliant and she is dedicated and she is tough, and she is exactly what you’d want in anybody who is administering the law, and making sure that everybody is getting a fair shake," Obama said of Harris Wednesday night at a fundraiser in San Francisco. "She also happens to be, by far, the best-looking attorney general in the country."

People offended by Obama's comment took to Twitter to vent.







Others, however, defended the president's remarks and even voiced their own opinions on Harris' looks.
