Obama's brother featured in anti-Obama movie
President Obama's half-brother George appears in a big-screen movie based on Dinesh D'Souza's bestselling book "The Roots of Obama's Rage."
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.”
The Hollywood reporter continues, providing more alleged details about the film and the aforementioned interview:
The focus of the movie, though, is the alleged anger at colonialism that President Obama inherited from his (and George’s) father.
As D’Souza puts it in the book: “This philandering, inebriated African socialist, who raged against the world for denying him the realization of his anti-colonial ambitions, is now setting the nation’s agenda through the reincarnation of his dreams in his son.”
D’Souza, therefore, presses that theory with George Obama, and seems to get agreement from him, as the president’s brother argues that Kenya has fallen behind since its independence.
D’Souza clearly enjoys getting to know George Obama and at one point during the interview (though not in the above clip), he jokes that America elected the wrong Obama to be its president.
The two also talked about George’s book, Homeland, which was released in 2010. “2016” was produced by Gerald Molen, who has an impressive Hollywood resume, including “Schindler’s List,“ ”Jurassic Park“ and ”Rain Man,” among other films. The documentary opens in Houston on July 13.
Below, watch a trailer for the film:
