In the movie, “2016: Obama’s America,” based on Dinesh D’Souza’s best-selling book The Roots of Obama’s Rage, D’Souza refers to a news report four years ago about George Obama living in a hut in Nairobi, Kenya, “like something out of Slumdog Millionaire.”
In the film clip seen below, D’Souza interviews George Obama on what appears to be a park bench, and D’Souza asks why the half-brother of the most powerful man on the planet lives in poverty and without any financial help from President Obama.
“I think he has a family of his own,” George Obama says. “I’m a member of his family, but I’m over-age, so I help myself.” D’Souza presses him by using the Biblical admonition – one that the president has also cited — that Americans ought to be “our brother’s keeper,” and George Obama shrugs off that insinuation, as well.
“He’s got other issues to deal with,” he says. “He’s taking care of the world, so he’s taking care of me.”
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.
