Michelle Obama, along with Laura Bush, spoke yesterday during the U.S.-Africa Leaders Summit. Mrs. Obama made news when she claimed that women are smarter than men:
“We can’t waste the spotlight. Time is short. Change is needed. And women are smarter than men,” Obama said during the U.S.-Africa Leaders Summit to a laughing audience, according to White House press pool reports.
She continued, “And the men can’t complain because they are outnumbered today.”
I’m sure glad no man has ever gotten in trouble for suggesting that males might be smarter (or more capable) in certain disciplines than females.
