Police booking photo of Onyango Obama, the uncle of President Obama
PALM BEACH, Fla. – The subject of President Obama’s illegal alien uncle – under arrest for allegedly driving drunk – was brought up on the nation’s top-rated radio program today, with host Rush Limbaugh wondering why Uncle Omar Onyango Obama has never joined his famous relative in the nation’s capital.
“This is the first time we’ve ever heard of him,” said Limbaugh.
“This guy and Aunt Zeituni [Onyango], they’re never invited to the White House. You get rappers showing up at the White House. You’ve got all kinds of Hollywood people, you’ve got any number of people. But family, the family is ignored.”
WND reported over the weekend how Onyango Obama, an illegal alien from Kenya, was arrested in Framingham, Mass., after allegedly driving under the influence and nearly slamming his SUV into a police car last Wednesday.
According to the MetroWest Daily News, Obama, 67, failed a sobriety test after the crash, registering a blood-alcohol level of .14, when the state limit it .08
“Uncle Omar and Aunt Zeituni are in Massachusetts. Wasn’t the family just there?” asked Limbaugh, referring to the president’s family vacation in Martha’s Vineyard.
“They’re both in violation of the law. They have been deported, both have been deported and just refused to leave. And when Uncle Omar was arrested, he wanted to call the White House, just like when they run out of McNuggets in Port St. Lucie, [Fla.], they call 9-1-1.”
A caller who brought up the issue complained there was little national news coverage about the case.
“It’s very odd that there’s such a blackout,” he told Limbaugh. “Had this been anyone of the [Republican presidential] frontrunners or one of their relatives, we would never hear the end of it.”
Omar Onyango Obama has had a Social Security number and Massachusetts driving license for nearly two decades, according to a new report today in the Boston Herald.
The paper reports he’s held a valid Massachusetts driver’s license and Social Security number since 1992, according to state Registry of Motor Vehicles spokesman Michael Verseckes.
Police reports explain Onyango had “red and glassy eyes,” was wobbly legged, and was “slurring” his speech.
The report said a marked cruiser pulled him over about a mile from his house.
He initially denied drinking but later confessed to having “beers” when police said they smelled alcohol, the police report said.
“It was clear that he was moderately unsteady on his feet,” Framingham Officer Val Krishtal wrote in the report.
He was ordered held without bail on a federal immigration warrant after his arraignment. The newspaper said court papers reveal he was the subject of a previous deportation order. He was being held in the Plymouth House of Correction.
Cleveland immigration attorney Margaret Wong is representing Onyango and spokesman Mike Rogers told the newspaper he “wouldn’t know how” Onyango got the documentation.
