VIDEO: A Fired-Up President Obama Campaigns for Hillary in Columbus, OH

President Barack Obama has spent a lot of time campaigning in Ohio. And on Tuesday, he held one of his final political rallies here as president – not for himself, but for Hillary Clinton.

Obama, kicking off a multi-day campaign tour of battleground states, appealed to a crowd of supporters at Capital University to support the Democratic nominee. He spent just as much time, however, taking shots at Donald Trump and other Republicans.

The president explicitly appealed to working people who are thinking about voting for Trump to reconsider.

"The notion that this guy is going to fight for working people when his entire life, he did not have time for anybody who wasn't rich or a celebrity, who wouldn't let you into one of his hotels unless you were cleaning the room, or let you onto one of his golf courses unless you were mowing the fairway? C'mon -- this guy is going to be your champion?" Obama said.

Obama took a number of other digs at Trump, including that the GOP nominee "has never worn a baseball hat or a seed hat until he started selling 'em."

Obama brought up the Cleveland Indians' World Series appearance to urge Ohioans to go vote, noting that Taco Bell is giving away free tacos on Wednesday because Indians shortstop Francisco Lindor stole a base in Game 1.

"If you can find the time to get a free taco, you can find the time to go vote," Obama said. "It's like a combo meal -- you get something good for your soul, and then you get something good for your appetite."
You know what? I think we're gonna win Ohio! Because with this great president on our team...how can we possibly fail? Watch the full speech above.
