When Bill Clinton said "Obama would have been carrying our bags a few years ago"
Washington, Sept. 3 (ANI): Former US President Bill Clinton reportedly made a racist comment on President Barack Obama in 2008 by saying: "A few years ago, this guy would have been carrying our bags," a report has claimed.
Clinton allegedly made the racially insensitive remark to Senator Ted Kennedy as he tried to convince the liberal to endorse his wife, Hillary, Obama's rival for the Democratic nomination in 2008, according to The New Yorker.
Kennedy, however, had endorsed Obama.
According to the New York Post, the author of the article, Ryan Lizza, said he had heard about the comment from legendary NBC newsman Tim Russert, who died in 2008.
The comment was similar to one attributed to Clinton in a book in 2010, the report added.
"A few years ago, this guy would have been getting us coffee," Clinton was quoted, as saying in "Game Change".
According to the report, Clinton had also called Obama 'incompetent' and 'an amateur' who has no clue about how the world operates, an article in Sunday's Post written by Edward Klein, author of "The Amateur: Barack Obama in the White House", read.
"Obama doesn't know how to be president," Clinton had told his friends and political advisers," adding: "He doesn't know how the world works."
According to the report, Klein said that Clinton had also asked his wife to challenge Obama for the 2012 nomination.
Hillary Rodham Clinton, Obama's Secretary of State, however, rejected the advice, Klein added. (ANI)
