CNBC Reporter Called Obama ‘The Black Guy’ While Giving Advice to Clinton Campaign

A prominent CNBC reporter referred to President Barack Obama as “the black guy” while he was sending advice to Hillary Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta.

“Perhaps I am missing something…” Harwood wrote in the subject line of an email to Podesta on June 6, 2015. The email, dumped by WikiLeaks, also went to Clinton speechwriter Joel Benenson, as well as Democratic strategists David Axelrod and David Plouffe.

“…but it seems to me the idea in this story that Bill Clinton ran broad centrist ’50-state’ campaign and Obama ran narrow ‘liberal’ campaign is ridiculous on its face,” Harwood complained, referring to a New York Times article. Harwood also writes for the New York Times.

“Yes, Bill Clinton of Arkansas won some Southern states and Colorado and Montana with help from Ross Perot on way to 370 EVs in 1992. But was his campaign really more expansive than that of the black guy who won VA and NC and IN, 50%+ of popular vote (twice) and 365 EVs in 2008?,” Harwood wrote.
