>President Obama has long boasted that he is a staunch defender of women's issues and he's a proponent for equality in the health care system, but something seems to have slipped through the cracks... and it was a YouTube star who told him.
>During an interview with the Commander-in-Chief, Ingrid Nilsen, one of several YouTuber's to chat with Obama, asked why there was a "luxury tax" on sanitary pads and tampons in many states.
>The president was totally caught off guard by the question, saying he had "no idea" why states would tax such a thing, and he confessed that he had never heard of that before.
>"Recently I was shocked to learn that pads, tampons and other menstrual products are taxed as luxury goods in 40 states," Ingrid, who often speaks about women's issues, told the most powerful man in the world. "I don't think there is anyone who has a period that thinks it's a luxury."
>"I think that's fair to say, Michelle would agree with you on that," Obama replied.
>He continued, "I have to tell you, I have no idea why states would tax these as luxury items. I suspect it's because men were making the laws when those taxes were passed."
>A good sport, the president said he was happy to learn this news but told Ingrid that there really isn't much he can about that as those issues don't fall under federal law.
>get an audience with the most powerful man in the world
>ask him this
>he takes it seriously
Friendly reminder that the SJW menace is no longer a fringe minority relegated to the internet. Friendly reminder that these "people" are taken seriously and are going to be the death of Western civilization.
