President Barack Obama may be less-than-content over reports that his half-brother, George Obama, appears in “2016: Obama’s America,” a documentary that is highly critical of the president. But now that footage from the film has leaked, the frustration level at the White House — and within the Obama family — could be slated to rise exponentially.
The Hollywood Reporter secured exclusive footage of the film, which is based on King’s College president and writer Dinesh D’Souza’s controversial book ”The Roots of Obama’s Rage.” D’Souza apparently tracked George down to discuss a variety of subjects, including past media reports that he is impoverished and lives in a hut in Naironi, Kenya — a surprising fact considering that his half-brother is the leader of the free world.
In the clip, D‘Souza asks why George lives in poverty despite his brother’s prominence. He tells the president’s brother that past news reports have exposed that Obama has done little to help his brother. George quickly responds, saying, “I think he has a family of his own. I’m a member of his family, but I’m over-age, so I help myself.”
But D‘Souza isn’t satisfied with that answer and he decides to push the issue further.
“You’re his brother. Has he been your keeper?,” D’Souza asks and George responds, “Go ask him” and then reiterates that his brother has many other issues to contend with.
“He’s got other issues to deal with,” George responds. “He’s taking care of the world, so he’s taking care of me.”
