Wikileaks have released an email sent to John Podesta that show the Hillary Clinton campaign attempting to smear Barack Obama as a ‘crackhead’ and an ‘Islamic extremist’.
In 2008, Clinton aides created a powerpoint presentation listing all of the tactics they could use to attack Barack Obama, focussing mostly on his alleged cocaine habit and Muslim background.
In an email on January 18, 2008, Kristi Fuksa of Greenberg Quinlan Rosner research company shared a power point presentation with John Podesta and several advisers.
“Obama is not patriotic enough to be our president. His father was a Muslim and he grew up in the world’s most populated Islamic country,” read the question for voters. “At a recent public event he didn’t cover his heart during the national anthem and he has also recently stopped wearing an American flag pin.”
