COLUMBUS (WCMH) — “Don’t be bamboozled!”

That’s what President Obama had to say Tuesday night in Bexley about Donald Trump. He spoke at a Hillary for America event in front of nearly 6,000 at Capital University.

The President’s message was about voting for Hillary Clinton. But, he also took the opportunity to slam Donald Trump, saying he doesn’t have the experience to be president.

“Choose hope, choose hope, vote, vote,” President Obama chanted with the crowd.

“There’s only one that’s actually worthy of your vote. Who is smart. Who is steady. Who is tested. Whose heart is in the right place. Who is probably the most qualified person ever to run for this office and that is Hillary Clinton,” said the President.

President Obama slammed Trump for his inexperience.

“You don’t want someone who really doesn’t know what they’re doing or show any curiosity about knowing what they’re doing,” he said.

He also alluded to the emails that have continued to plague Clinton’s campaign.

“Has she made mistakes? Of course. So have I. There’s nobody in the public arena over the course of 30 years that doesn’t make some,” he said.

President Obama said Clinton would be an outstanding president. In less than a week, we’ll find out if she’ll be back in the White House. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
