Of course: Guy who defeated Hillary in ’08 schools sexist males about why a woman’s never been president

There’s a good reason President Obama never seems concerned that his target audience will connect the dots of irony and laugh him off the stage, and that’s because it never happens — even when he lays classics like this on them:

President Barack Obama on Tuesday called on men to “look inside” themselves and think about bias if they have any doubt about voting for Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton.

“To the guys out there, I want to be honest,” Obama told a crowd in Columbus, Ohio, at a Clinton campaign event. “You know, there’s a reason we haven’t had a woman president before.”

He asked male voters to think about their potential biases against Clinton, who would be the first female president in U.S. history.

“I want every man out there who’s voting to kinda 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. “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?”

Your projection is showing, Mr. President:

As for me, my anti-liar, anti-malfeasance, anti-lefty bias is what keeps me from voting for Hillary Clinton, not her sex.
