Will the future Ms. President please stand up?

Barack Obama isn't a huge fan of the world's male population lately. You know, with all of the sexual harassment allegations, it's not a good time to support men in general.

In fact, Fast Company reports that Obama recently admitted he'd like to see more women taking on leadership roles "because men seem to be having some problems these days."


Without naming names, Obama told business, media, and political leaders gathered at a private event in Paris Saturday that certain men in power can't "socialize" properly. 

He later went on to say that the U.S. is currently experiencing "temporary absence of American leadership." Very subtle, No. 44.

"Not to generalize, but women seem to have a better capacity than men do, partly because of their socialization," Obama continued. 

I mean, where is the lie?


Unfortunately, he probably wasn't talking about his wife, Michelle Obama, who is currently living her best life as a private citizen. Still, we can dream, right?!
