Obama: Hillary Clinton Is Treated Differently Because She’s A Woman

Campaigning for Hillary Clinton in Ohio on Tuesday, President Obama said the Democratic presidential nominee is “consistently treated differently than just about any other candidate I see out there.” Women are looked down upon when they do things that would be considered “ambitious” by men, the president said, and there’s a “reason why we haven’t had a woman president before.” He told the men in the crowd to “ask yourself if you’re having problems with this stuff, how much of it is that we’re just not used to it?” Like everyone else, Clinton has had mistakes, Obama continued, and there’s “nobody in this public arena over the course of 30 years who doesn’t make some. She is a fundamentally good and decent person who know what she’s doing.”
