WASHINGTON (AP) — President Barack Obama has rendered his opinion on what he called the most significant event of inaugural weekend: his wife's new haircut.

Said Obama: "I love her bangs. She looks good. She always looks good."

First lady Michelle Obama unveiled the new do in a White House photo released last Thursday, her 49th birthday.

And it has been the talk of the town — and the airwaves and social media — ever since.

Obama made the comments Sunday night at a reception in Washington, where he thanked his many donors for their support.
