Explosive revelations have been published that could threaten Democrat chances at the 2016 US Presidential election.

Journalist Edward Klein has written Blood Feud about the often tense relationship between Bill and Hillary Clinton and Barack and Michelle Obama.

According to excerpts published in The New York Post the two couples put on a public show of support but behind closed doors they loathe each other.

The book claims Bill Clinton said the following to a friend: “I hate that man Obama more than any man I’ve ever met, more than any man who ever lived,” adding he would never forgive Obama for suggesting he was a racist during the 2008 campaign.

More extracts from the book show the feeling is mutual.

Bill Clinton would eventually campaign for Obama in 2012, but The Post claims he felt betrayed when the president was not forthcoming with a 2016 endorsement of Hillary. Obama attempted to smooth things over with a joint television interview with Hillary.
