Well, I guess even the president’s family likes their alcohol every now and again. Apparently one of them even likes to get into a car and drive while intoxicated. A story coming out of Framingham, MA is saying that President Obama’s uncle has been pulled over and arrested for driving under the influence.
Onyango Obama was arrested last week in Framingham after police said he made a rolling stop and nearly caused a cruiser to strike his SUV. Let’s be clear here, the story is just stupid, and in no way does this really put a bad spin on the president himself, other than the fact that he has some embarrassing family members, but who doesn’t have embarrassing family members.
The real kicker here is that police are still holding him because of a deportation situation. It seems the President’s uncle won the right to stay in the United States after such a deportation order. However, the president’s uncle is originally from Kenya and is being held without bail on a detainer from U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement. This could be a developing and interesting story as it unfolds.
When Obama was asked who he wanted to call as his one allotted call he responded by saying, “I think I will call the White House.” I am thinking that having that available phone call in your back pocket is quite a wild card.
