President Barack Obama said Tuesday that sexism is to blame for the tight race for the White House, telling an Ohio crowd that "Hillary Clinton is consistently treated differently than just about any other candidate I see out there."
Obama went on: "There's a reason we haven't had a woman president."
Speaking specifically to "the guys out there," Obama told them to "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 noted, "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's she doing that? I'm just being honest."
The president added that Clinton is "so much better qualified than" Republican Donald Trump. "This notion that it's somehow hard to choose? It shouldn't be."
