This one’s going ’round… look, I am ALL ABOUT cataloging Obama’s gaffes. But this ain’t a gaffe:
“I want to make mention that this is our first meeting since the arrival of the newest Sarkozy, and so I want to congratulate Nicolas and Carla on the birth of Giulia,” Mr. Obama told reporters shortly after his arrival at the G-20, with Mr. Sarkozy at his side. “And I informed Nicolas on the way in that I am confident that Giulia inherited her mother’s looks rather than her father’s, which I think is an excellent thing.”
…it’s freaking true.
I mean, shoot, Carla Bruni-Sarkozy’s a freaking former supermodel. There’s no shame in admitting that her and Nicolas’ kids would do well to take after their mom.
