Obama totally nails the biggest conspiracy theory that would follow Clinton into office

President Obama isn’t leaving office without a few mic drops on his way out the door, and he kept the good times rolling during an interview with Samantha Bee.

During Monday night’s episode of “Full Frontal,” Obama stopped by to encourage young voters to turn out to vote for Hillary Clinton on Election Day in what he called the “most important election of our lifetime.”

But things got real when Bee asked Obama what equivalent nonsense Clinton would face as the first woman president to the racist birther conspiracy theories that dogged Obama’s tenure in office.


“The equivalent will be, she’s tired, she’s moody, she’s being emotional, there’s something about her,” Obama quipped.

He continued: “When men are ambitious, it’s just taken for granted, well of course they should be ambitious. When women are ambitious, [people ask] why? That theme will continue throughout her presidency. And it’s contributed to this notion that somehow she’s hiding something.”

See, Obama gets it.
