In a newly released audio recording of Rev. Jeremiah Wright, the former pastor and mentor of Barack Obama, says that during the 2008 Presidential election season, an anxious Obama warned him to be heedful of what he discloses to the media.
Obama told his mentor and close confidante: "You know what your problem is? You have to tell the truth!"
Says Wright: "Which is my point to [Obama]: Politicians [like Obama] don't have to tell the truth!"
