Former president Barack Obama was in South Africa where he encouraged more women to get involved in the political process. As an incentive he mentioned that men were getting on his nerves and that they haven't done the best job of running things. We can only imagine how the internet will react.
While in Johannesburg a woman from Kenya asked Obama, who was giving a town hall style presentation, the best way to get involved in politics. That's when Obama laid down a giant truth bomb and told it like it is. He said:
Women in particular I want you to get more involved, because men have been getting on my nerves lately.

You know, just not handling our business. So I think empowering more women on the continent ― that right away is going to lead to some better policies.

With more and more women entering politics maybe soon we will end this debate once and for all.
