Obama: Men Are Sexist if They Support Donald Trump Over Hillary Clinton
President Barack Obama urged men not to simply oppose Hillary Clinton for president simply because she is a woman.
“To the guys out there, I want to be honest, you know there’s a reason why there hasn’t been a woman president before,” he said. “And I think that sometimes, you know, we’re trying to get over the hump.”
Obama spoke personally to each man in the audience, urging them to examine their hearts, pointing out that he wanted his daughters to achieve whatever they wanted for their lives.
“I want every man out there who’s voting to kind of look inside yourself and ask yourself — if you’re having problems with this stuff, how much of it is that we’re just not used to it?“ he said.
Men, he explained, didn’t have a problem supporting a man who was in public and demonstrated ambition, but sometimes questioned women who did the same thing.
“I’m just being honest,” he said, as women in the audience yelled in approval. “I want you to think about it because she is so much better qualified than the other guy.”
