While some people criticized President Obama's recent comments about California attorney general Kamala Harris as sexist, the hosts of "Fox and Friends" were totally fine with it.

Obama provoked backlash when he called Harris "the best-looking attorney general." MSNBC host Mika Brzezinski, a strong supporter of Obama, called the remark "a mistake" by the president.

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.

Carlson said that physical appearance shouldn't go on a resume, but said that it shouldn't a problem for someone to acknowledge it. "I wish that we wouldn't so completely PC on this issue because it's true, she's attractive, so what?" she said.
