Gov. Paul LePage told a group of Republicans last week that President Obama "hates white people," according to two state lawmakers who say they heard the remark directly.
The governor made the comment during a Maine Republican Party fundraiser on Aug. 12 at the home of John and Linda Fortier in Belgrade. According to the invitation, the fundraiser was a "meet and greet" for LePage and first lady Ann LePage, and an opportunity to meet Rick Bennett, the new party chairman.
The lawmakers, both Republicans, confirmed the comment when asked by a Portland Press Herald reporter but asked that their names be withheld for fear of political retribution.
Each said LePage talked about how Obama could have been the best president ever if he had highlighted his biracial heritage. LePage said the president hasn't done that because he hates white people.

The list, Ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
?? So Obama hates himself?
Somebody FINALLY said it.
President Obama “hates white people” is not a controversial statement. It is self evident.
Gee and we really liked him.
Now, it’s up to Obama to prove that he doesn’t hate White people. The ball is in his court.
I agree with you; however, the MSM will no doubt find a way to turn this into a story that will use up air time for at least a week, minimizing any of the real/bad news swirling around, which is related to 0bama. We will hear from Sharpton, NAACP, the Black Muslim Brotherhood, Oprah, etc., etc. who will comment on what a racist LePage is.
Only half way!
He does hate white people. And he hates black people too. He’s a multi-faceted racist.
He’s done more harm to blacks since being elected than other other president since LBJ. Just look at the increasing poverty stats and decreasing education levels.
What a conflicted loser; half black - half white - all racist.
He’s merely speaking the obvious.
let’s see if i’m shocked...
not even a little
That’s true; Obama’s late mother and my late mother were of the same race.
The White Obama always trying to keep Black Obama down!
Boy, the conversions in front of the mirror but be something.
The Democrat Party, and their complicit MSM will drag Governor LePage through the slime until he resigns in total disgrace for speaking the absolute truth.
Who didn’t know that?
About time someone said it out loud — reminds me of when Kanye West said “George Bush hates black people!”
And the media glorified it for weeks and weeks.
Your funniest post yet!! Love your one liners — keep ‘em coming.
And this will immediately be twisted to "LePage hates black people."
