Speaking to the largely leftist crowd, Obama suggested women might be facing a problem, as a gender, if around half of American women voted for Donald Trump.

"In light of this last election, I'm concerned about us as women and how we think," she said, according to The Hill. "What is going on in our heads where we let that happen, you know?"


She then implied that women have absorbed sexism, and that's why women selected a less qualified male candidate over a more qualified female candidate.

"When the most qualified person running was a woman, and look what we did instead, I mean that says something about where we are," she continued. "That's what we have to explore, because if we as women are still suspicious of one another, if we still have this crazy, crazy bar for each other that we don't have for men … if we're not comfortable with the notion that a woman could be our president compared to … what, then we have to have those conversations with ourselves as women."

It is, of course, entirely possible that women are capable of independent thought, and are not influenced by the general "sexism" of their Patriarchal community, and in comparing Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump decided that they would rather vote for Donald Trump based on any number of factors including, but not limited to, that he was not Hillary Clinton.

hmmm, thinking that women should think the same way because they are women. That seems pretty sexist to me. I thought libs were against sexism?

Hell, even we men can't understand how a man who thinks of women as meat and who cheats and lies to his own wife, can garner any support from any woman in this country. I am offended by his values, and I am a man.

I wonder what makes her think it had anything to do with gender?

Obviously because both candidates were white, so race was off the table and there is only one other thing left, gender.

So typical of liberals to think they have the right to tell me what and how to think. LOL, can you imagine if Hillary would have won.... disagree with her and the sexist card would be played.

We know what's going on in her mind. It sounds like a pinball machine. Ding, ding, ding. When the game is over it says, low score try again.

Calling Hillary the more qualified candidate is like saying that death by carbon monoxide poisoning is less painful than death by overdose.

The entire election was like a long game of "Would You Rather..." that escalated too quickly.

"Would you rather go down a razor blade covered slide and land in salt or put bamboo splinters under your fingernails?"

" Would you rather elect a narcissistic Cheeto or a compulsively lying sociopath? "

"Wait, this was supposed to be a game!!"
