Gov. Paul LePage of Maine (R) told a group of Republicans that President Obama “hates white people,” according to two state lawmakers who say they heard the remarks.

LePage made the remarks last week during a Maine Republican Party fundraiser at the home of John and Linda Fortier, according to the Portland Press Herald.

The state lawmakers said that LePage discussed how Obama could have been the best president ever if he had highlighted his biracial heritage. But the president hasn't done that because he “hates white people.”

Other lawmakers who attended the fundraiser said they had not heard LePage make the remark.

This isn't the first time LePage has made an inflammatory comment.

In June, he accused Marine Assistant Senate Majority Leader Troy Jackson of being “the first one to give it to the people without providing Vaseline.”

In July, 2012, he compared the Internal Revenue Service to the Nazi secret police, the Gestapo.

In 2010, before he was elected, he told a group of fisherman “As your governor, you're going to be seeing a lot of me on the front page, saying 'Governor LePage tells Obama to go to hell.'”

I'll believe it when the "two state lawmakers who say they heard the remarks" come out of the closet and give their names. Otherwise they are just anonymous trolls with no credibility, and probably Democrats.
