It seems like there are some things even Supergirl can't avoid - namely the comments from men who think they have a right to say anything about her body. In this case, Republican presidential candidate hopeful Jeb Bush was probably just trying to sound like he was caught up on popular media by naming his favorite superheroes - and he ended up saying that he found the new Supergirl, played by "Glee" alum Melissa Benoist, "pretty hot."

The comment was reported on by the media at some length, and it actually made its way back to Benoist while she was being interviewed by CBS This Morning. It was obvious that the actress wasn't thrilled with the somewhat flattering but mainly just creepy comment from the person who could be the next president. Take a look at her reaction to the comment, which starts at 3:21:

Benoist basically awkwardly laughed off the comment before saying, "I heard about it, but I don't know what to think about it... I'm glad he's excited to watch the show."

Supergirl, which has been the most watched new show of the fall season, airs on CBS Monday nights.
