You know how we all joke about when we hit the lottery, or became famous, how we’re going to have to disown our new relatives? Yeah, like little John John who used to pee the bed and blame it on you when y’all stayed at Grandma’s while mom’s was out running the streets on some hoe shit? Oh c’mon; I’m not the only one who has had that experience. Umm, yeah, too much information there.
But anyway, I’m pretty sure president Obama, like us, said the same thing when he just a “regular” guy like us regular everyday folks. Yeah, you know, back in the day when he was just Barry? Well, I’m pretty sure since become the most powerful man in the world he has all kind of “relatives” come out of the woodwork. Matter of fact, I’m pretty sure Shaquille O’Neal’s biological father has come out to claim Barack as his son – no word on when he’s doing Oprah, Maury, or The Tom Joyner Morning Show. You know how they make the rounds in the media trying to make a buck.
Now we all know about his
illegal alien undocumented immigrant aunt up in Boston, his half-brother in China, and of course the half-brother living in a hut in Kenya. But, I bet you didn’t know about his half-uncle who just had a run-in with Boston’s finest and picked up a DUI charge. He too is an undocumented immigrant distant relative of president Obama – calm down right-wingers, there’s no Kenyan invasion. But it’s what he did after his arrest that made the news. According to the Boston Herald and the Globe, he requested a call to the White House.
Onyango Obama, 67, of Framingham, the half-brother of the president’s late father, was arrested Wednesday at 7:05 p.m. at the corner of Waverly and South streets, said Middlesex district attorney’s spokeswoman Cara O’Brien. When the elder Obama was asked if he wanted to make a phone call to arrange for bail, he said,“I think I will call the White House,” according to the police report. […]
The report goes on to say that Onyango Obama was stopped after he allegedly made a quick turn in front of a police officer, forcing both the officer and the driver of a car behind the officer to slam on their brakes. […]
Obama initially claimed not to have been drinking but then acknowledged having one beer and then a second beer, the report said. The officer said Obama then failed three field sobriety tests and was booked without further incident.
Now, I have yet to get a phone-call from a relative distant or otherwise asking me to help get them out from jail. I’ve had a few friends to do it, but not anyone to whom I was related. That said, the thought of Barack getting a call at the White House from this dude asking for bail money is hilarious. I mean, I don’t know if Barack communicates with this guy regularly; and my instincts says no. But I guess what better get out of jail card can there be than being a relative of the president of the United States? Obviously uncle drinks-a-lot wasn’t allowed to call, but what if he was? What was Barack supposed to do? Doesn’t he already have problems with “certain people” looking for his one-time cocaine dealer? Barack has 99 problems, but a drunk uncle sure ain’t one.
