Obama to Clegg: “It’s good to see the better looking half of the coalition”

Clegg ObamaNot content with insulting the chancellor by calling him Jeffrey on three occasions at the G8 summit, President Obama also dealt a blow to the prime minister’s vanity, via his deputy. The Sun’s Tom Newton Dunn reports:

In a second diplomatic gaffe on the same day, Mr Obama said Nick Clegg was more attractive than David Cameron. He told the Deputy PM: “It’s good to see the better looking half of the Coalition.”

Ouch.

  • He is right though 😉

  • I love the way The Sun reports it as a “diplomatic gaffe”

  • It must be LURVE! :-)

    Mr Clegg has a better-looking wife, too! 😉

    (of course what Barak is really drawing attention to in a roundabout way is that he himself and his missus are better-looking than any of them, especially Putin, even with his latest mistress.

  • A ‘diplomatic gaffe’? No, just the truth – not that being better looking than slimy toad ‘Call me Dave’ would be hard to achieve!

  • A correction from Mr Obamas office …. meant to say “better half of the coalitions POLICIES” :) :)

    Presumably Peter’s correction was dictated by Michelle.
