President Obama asks men to seriously consider sexism, and whether

that's keeping them from voting for Hillary.

"To the guys out there, I want to be honest. You know there’s a reason why we haven’t had a woman president before and I think sometimes we’re trying to get over the hump," the president said in Columbus. "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 you know that we’re not just used to it?"

"When a guy's ambitious and out in the public arena and working hard well that’s OK, but when a woman suddenly does it, suddenly you’re all like – well why’s she doing that?" he said. "I want you to think about it because she is so much better qualified than the other guy. She has conducted herself so much better in public life than the other guy...This notion that somehow it's hard to choose, it shouldn't be."

The president warned working class voters not to be duped by the Republican nominee.

"The notion that this guy is your champion, the notion that this guy is going to fight for working people when his entire life he did not have time for anybody who wasn't rich or a celebrity. Who wouldn't let you into one of his hotels unless you were cleaning the room. Wouldn't let you onto one of his golf courses unless you were mowing the fairway. Come on. This guy is going to be you champion?" the president said.

"Don't be bamboozled," the president added.

1. I appreciated that.

Not getting much coverage in the corporate media. I'm sure you're shocked as I am.

10. Every four years, they flock here like moths to a flame.

I don't know exactly what they think they're accomplishing.
