(WTRF)- A new book claims former President Obama vented about political reporters and how they covered him.

The book titled “Battle for the Soul: Inside the Democrats’ Campaigns to Defeat Trump,” by The Atlantic’s Edward-Isaac Dovere, which will be released on May 25., claims Obama vented about political reporters and how they covered him.

“Motherf—ers, I’m aloof with you because I don’t want to talk to you,” Obama said, according to Dovere.

According to the book, Obama also called the Tea Party “racist motherf—ers.” 

Excerpts from the book also claim Obama called former President Trump a “corrupt motherf—er,” a “madman,” a “racist, sexist pig,” and a “f—ing lunatic.’
