Former president Obama was at a leadership event in Singapore with Michelle Obama last week and made the comment that women are “indisputably better” leaders than men and that women in all leadership roles would improve everything.
The BBC reported:
At the event, the former president reportedly said: “Now women, I just want you to know; you are not perfect, but what I can say pretty indisputably is that you’re better than us [men].
“I’m absolutely confident that for two years if every nation on earth was run by women, you would see a significant improvement across the board on just about everything … living standards and outcomes,” he continued.
“If you look at the world and look at the problems it’s usually old people, usually old men, not getting out of the way,” the former president went on.
“It is important for political leaders to try and remind themselves that you are there to do a job, but you are not there for life, you are not there in order to prop up your own sense of self importance or your own power,” he added.
