Obama on Ray Rice video: A 'real man' doesn't hit a woman

Yahoo! National News - Tue, 09/09/2014 - 09:54

U.S. President Barack Obama answers a question at a press conference at the conclusion of the NATO Summit at the Celtic Manor Resort in Newport, WalesSpeaking out against domestic violence in the wake of a video showing former Baltimore Ravens running back Ray Rice punching his then-fiancee in an elevator, President Barack Obama said on Monday that "hitting a woman is not something a real man does." “The President is the father of two daughters. And like any American, he believes that domestic violence is contemptible and unacceptable in a civilized society," White House spokesman Josh Earnest said in a statement. "Hitting a woman is not something a real man does, and that’s true whether or not an act of violence happens in the public eye, or, far too often, behind closed doors," the White House statement added, saying that stopping domestic violence "is something that’s bigger than football." The Ravens released Rice on Monday after the video, published on the website TMZ, showed him punching Janay Palmer, who is now his wife, and her falling face down on the elevator floor.
