Obama says Clinton to face unfair gender attacks if elected


WASHINGTON (AP) — President Barack Obama says Hillary Clinton’s opponents will belittle her as overly emotional if she becomes the nation’s first woman president.

Obama is appearing on TBS’ “Full Frontal with Samantha Bee.”

Obama’s critics falsely claimed he wasn’t born in the U.S. He was asked what the equivalent for Clinton will be.

He says critics will claim that Clinton is “tired, she’s moody, she’s being emotional.”

Obama says there’s a double standard in politics, where men are praised for being ambitious but women are not.

The president also says that 18-year-old daughter Malia Obama has voted for the first time in this election. He says politicians need to talk to young people “about things that they care about.”
