What is authenticity ?

And while Mr. Obama acknowledged that Mrs. Clinton has perceived weaknesses as a candidate, and that some Democrats view her as inauthentic, he suggested, essentially, that authenticity is overrated in a president.

Someone who is "authentic" is real, not a fake, but genuine. Some people don't think most politicians are very authentic because they seem to change positions easily.

Lorikeet:
Thank you.
Though I had consulted a English-Japanese dictionary, I had not been able to find the meaning.
Is it similar to orthodox?

I bet you could understand a regular English dictionary just fine. And I don't think it's the same as orthodox.
