“Bill Dated More Black Women Than Obama”

From CNN via YouTube:

A clip of the entire interview is available at the (racist) website Newsmakers Journal (just above a thought piece from Minister Farrakhan).

Here is an excerpted transcript from the interview, from CNN’s Situation Room:

Race and fidelity and the presidential campaign

YOUNG: I want Barack Obama to be president, in 2016. Barack Obama does not have the support network, yet, to get to be president. The Clinton, the Clintons have, he’s smart, he’s brilliant, but you cannot be president alone. Hillary Clinton, first of all, has Bill behind her and Bill is every bit as black as Barack. He’s probably gone with more black women than Barack

If you read about the Clintons, when Clinton decided to run, Hillary set up a defense committee and that’s what they called it. You know what it was? It was go around and neutralize all the women he had ever been involved with. She got her friends to be the defense committee, to protect him from the attacks.

And about the fallout, or rather the conspicuous lack of same, from the inimitable New York Post:

December 10, 2007 — The silence was deafening in the camps of Democratic presidential candidates yesterday over civil-rights leader Andrew Young’s tasteless crack comparing Bill Clinton’s and Barak Obama’s supposed prowess with black women.

“Bill is every bit as black as Barack. He’s probably gone with more black women than Barack,” the former UN ambassador quipped on a live TV interview – immediately adding, “I’m clowning.”

Clinton’s campaign had no immediate comment, nor did Obama’s.

Jesse Jackson, who has boasted that Obama “has my vote,” wouldn’t touch the political hot potato with a 10-foot pole.

“He has no comment,” spokeswoman Rashida Restaino said.

The Rev. Al Sharpton, who hasn’t yet declared his choice for Dem presidential nominee, likewise had no immediate comment

Remember, all of this was an effort to praise Hillary and her abilities.
