White House caught in lie about Obama’s past

White House caught in lie about Obama’s past

The Obamacare lies have been all over the news lately. Particularly the one about “If you like your health care plan, you can keep your health care plan” that millions of American have learned was a falsehood through cancellation notices.
Today, the White House changed yet another story in a move Fox News described as “at best a misrepresentation” and “at worst a big lie.”
The uncle testified during the hearing that his famous nephew had stayed at his Cambridge apartment for about three weeks. At the time, Onyango Obama was in the U.S. illegally and fighting deportation.
He’s the second sibling of the president’s father to face deportation to Kenya since he took office.
Zeituni Onyango, the president’s aunt, won asylum in 2010 after a federal official disclosed days before Barack Obama’s historic election in 2008 that she was living illegally in Boston public housing.
President Obama had written in his memoir, “Dreams from My Father,” that he had met Zeituni Onyango.
But his relationship with his uncle, nicknamed Omar, was less clear.
In November 2011, a White House spokesman said he had no record of the two ever meeting. The Washington Post had also reported that scholars believed the two had never met.
But the story changed Thursday.
A White House official said the press office had not fully researched the relationship between the president and his uncle before telling the Boston Globe it had no record of the two meeting. This time, the press office claims to have asked the president directly, which it said it had not done in 2011.
“The president first met Omar Obama when he moved to Cambridge for law school,” said White House spokesman Eric Schultz. “The president did stay with him for a brief period of time until his apartment was ready. After that, they saw each other once every few months, but after law school they fell out of touch. The president has not seen him in 20 years, has not spoken with him in 10.”
The White House said Obama’s immigration case was handled “without any interference from the president or the White House.”
