While campaigning for Hillary Clinton in Columbus, Ohio, President Obama urged men to “get over the hump” of their sexism and vote for Hillary.

To “the guys out there,” Obama said, “there’s a reason why we haven’t had a woman president before…”

“And we have to ask ourselves, as men — because I hope my daughters are going to be able to achieve anything they want to achieve — and I know that my wife is not just my equal but my superior,” he continued.

“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. So that, like, when a guy is ambitious and out in the public arena and working hard, well, that’s okay; but when a woman suddenly does it suddenly you’re all like, well, why is she doing that?” he added.

So, men, is that the reason you aren’t voting for Hillary?
