Former President Obama on Wednesday called for women to get more involved in social movements because men have been “getting on my nerves.”

“Women, in particular, by the way, I want you to get more involved,” Obama said while hosting a town hall for young African leaders in South Africa. “Because men have been getting on my nerves lately. I mean, every day, I read the newspaper and I just think like, brothers what’s wrong with you guys? What’s wrong with us?”

Obama added that “empowering more women on the continent” would “lead to some better policies” right away.

Well, he’s not wrong. 

Now mind you I am not somebody who just automatically thinks that women are always more calm in a crisis, more capable of negotiating, and more likely to make the right decision. 

I have worked too many years, for too many female employers, to make that leap in logic. 

Just like with men, some women are capable of handling a stressful complicated job, and some just aren’t. 

However, I think at this point, much like Obama, I am so fed up with current leadership that I am willing to hand the whole kit and kaboodle to women and leave it to them to straighten things out. 

After all, there is almost no way they could make things worse, right?

    Best president of my lifetime. Who can forget the WHCD how calm and cool he was while knowing the covert operation underway.

    Just breaking from NYT:
    Trump knew two week before inauguration that Vlad himself ordered the election hacking.

    Ads running in Oregon to defeat Governor Kate Brown. Pensions…..”a retiree is making $77K a month!”
    Such utter bullshit; I am two weeks away from starting my 29th year. It does not happen. Waiting for the (gasp) bisexual to begin.

      Fellow Oregonian here. Yeah, those ads are starting to get on MY nerves! I am a retired California State Employee and believe me, I wish I had half of the ‘fake’ $77K they are talking about. What a bunch of crap.

    “Stop assaulting me,” the man in the black jacket said. Earlier in the video, the white man is heard telling the darker-skinned man that he’s an “illegal alien.”

    At one point, the man in red moves to make a citizen’s arrest”

      I’m glad that people there objected to red-shirt guy’s bullying. I hope the police check all stories out and that this kind of thing won’t happen again there. Here in the States, we’re going through some sort of call-the-police-there’s-a-black-person-near-here epidemic that has simply got to stop. I think the people calling the police simply want the police to come and shoot every black or differently-colored person in sight. Just “deplorable”!
