A new, unauthorized, biography of President Obama, by Edward Klein claims that Former President Bill Clinton mocked President Obama as an “amateur” and urged Hillary to quit her job as secretary of state and challenge him in the primaries, according to the New York Post
However, the book's contents were immediately disputed by the Clintons. Bill Clinton's spokesman Matt McKenna shot down the book saying the excerpts were “totally and completely false” and called Klein “a known liar.”
White House spokesman Eric Schultz accused Klein of making up facts to sell books, saying “Nobody in their right mind would believe the nonsense in this one, especially since both Secretary Clinton and President Clinton have been loyal and supportive of the president at every turn.”
Bill Clinton is actively campaigning for Obama’s re-election.
Klein, a former New York Times Magazine and Newsweek editor, defended the book as factually sound.
