"them saying to me that..."

I watched the interview of President Obama and he said "I remember having a conversation with somebody, and them saying to me that, you know it's not about you. It's about what you can do for other people."

I can't understand the grammatical structure of "them saying to me that..."
Why didn't he use (they were saying to me that...? Could you tell me when you use "them" as a subject of a sentence?
