President Obama is now trying to shame men into voting for Hillary Clinton.

Speaking at a campaign event in Ohio, the president implied that men who vote for Trump may only do so because they’re sexist.

“I just want to say to the guys out there — I want to be honest … there’s a reason why we haven’t had a woman president before,” Obama said. “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 that we’re just not used to it.”

Obama asked “the guys out there” to “look inside yourself and ask yourself, if you’re having problems with this stuff how much of it is that we’re just not used to it?”

“So that, like, when a guy is 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 is she doing that? I’m just being honest” he continued.

“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 than the other guy, that this notion that somehow, oh, you know, this is hard to choose — it shouldn’t be.”

The president’s shaming efforts come as Hillary’s campaign flounders amidst new reports of FBI investigations both into the Clinton Foundation and Hillary’s private email server. (RELATED: Leaked Memo: Hillary Wants Clinton Foundation To Keep Accepting Foreign Donations)
