    Republican lawmakers: LePage said Obama 'hates white people'
    Two Republicans say the governor made the remark during a fundraiser in Belgrade last week.

    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.

    "Yeah, he said it," said one of the lawmakers. "It was one little thing from a speech, but I think most people there thought it was totally inappropriate."

    Maine's GOP governor denies saying Obama 'hates white people'

    Gov. Paul LePage of Maine (R) on Tuesday denied reports that he told a group of Republicans that President Obama “hates white people.”
    "I never said that. And you guys are all about gossip," he told reporters in front of the Maine State House in Augusta, according to CNN affiliate WCSH.
    The Portland Press Herald reported late Monday that two anonymous state lawmakers said they heard LePage make the remark about the president during a Maine Republican Party fundraiser at the home of John and Linda Fortier.
    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,” they recalled the governor saying.
    Other lawmakers who attended the fundraiser said they had not heard LePage make the remark.

    Are psychopaths even capable of hate?
