The Illinois Senator scolded a McClatchy reporter who asked about an alleged video that supposedly depicts Michelle Obama uttering a remark that could be offensive to whites.

“We have seen this before. There is dirt and lies that are circulated in e-mails and they pump them out long enough until finally you, a mainstream reporter, asks me about it.”

Adds: “If somebody has evidence that myself or Michelle or anybody has said something inappropriate, let them do it.”
