President Barack Obama holds the last news conference of his presidency in the Brady Press Briefing Room at the White House January 18, 2017 in Washington, DC.

President Barack Obama holds the last news conference of his presidency in the Brady Press Briefing Room at the White House January 18, 2017 in Washington, DC.

*OK, enough is enough. In South Carolina, former President Barack Obama wants TV stations to cease running a pro-Trump PAC’s commercial against former Vice President Joe Biden.

You might be asking why he’s doing that? Well, the ad is a problem because it takes Obama’s words out of context in a way to harm the Biden campaign.

The Washington Post reports that the PAC, named the Committee to Defend the President, has “circulated an ad that falsely suggests that words Obama spoke in the narration of his own book were meant to describe Biden.”

“In an attempt to sway black voters in the state, the ad begins with a narrator saying ‘Joe Biden promised to help our community. It was a lie. Here’s President Obama,’” the Washington Post reported. “The ad then runs audio of a tape of Obama reading from an unrelated passage from his 1995 book, ‘Dreams from My Father,’ about a conversation he had with a barber in Chicago when he was a community organizer.”

Obama Communications Director Katie Hill called on television stations to take the commercial down and “stop playing into the hands of bad actors.”

“This despicable ad is straight out of the Republican disinformation playbook, and it’s clearly designed to suppress turnout among minority voters in South Carolina by taking President Obama’s voice out of context and twisting his words to mislead viewers,” Hill declared. “In the interest of truth in advertising, we are calling on TV stations to take this ad down and stop playing into the hands of bad actors who seek to sow division and confusion among the electorate.”

The Biden campaign also condemned the ad, which you can see/hear via the player above, with campaign spokesman Andrew Bates saying, “Donald Trump and his allies are absolutely terrified that Joe Biden will defeat him in November.”

“Trump even got himself impeached by trying to force another country to lie about the vice president,” Bates continued, adding, “This latest intervention in the Democratic primary is one of the most desperate yet, a despicable torrent of misinformation by the president’s lackeys.”

I agree, but being involve in politics is power if you know how to use it, and i see my uncle gets anything he wants from the politicians he deals with, they will even change rules to give you what you want if they deal with you, than again those who lives in NY should know when bloomberg was Mayor

Both have ancestral ties to realms controlled at one time or another by Elizabeth II’s ancestors.

Obama’s maternal side was half Irish, descendant of Falmouth Kearney from Moneygall, County Tipperary, Kingdom of Ireland, which at the time was one of the three constituent kingdoms of the United Kingdom, so chances for an Irish connection. Obama’s mother was also descendent of prominent English colonist Jonathan Singletary Dunham, creating chances for an English connection. Consequently, his mother’s side has some serious British isle relations. His dad was Kenyan, which was a realm of the British empire with Elizabeth as sovereign, and in fact, she was physically in Kenya when she ascended to the British throne, so chances of a Kenyan connection.

Trump’s mother was an immigrant from Scotland, and since the current British monarchs actually descend from the throne of Scotland more directly than England (James VI of Scotland inherited the English throne when his second cousin twice removed Elizabeth I died without a direct heir, and he was her closest living relation) there’s a better chance of a Scottish connection. Trumps paternal grandparents were from the Kingdom of Hanover which was not a part of the British Empire but was in a personal Union with the United Kingdom (meaning they shared the same monarch), so there could be a German connection between trump and Elizabeth.

Either way, the chances of Obama, trump or Elizabeth actually being related is rather distant at best.

The Queen is a 13th cousin of a grandparent of Donald Trump through his maternal side (Scots)

The queen is a 10th cousin of a GREAT grandparent of Barack Obama through his maternal line

Donald Trump is an 18th cousin of a great grandparent of Barack Obama

There is 2% likelihood that Trump is related to any royalty through his german ancestry.

So, by a small margin Barack is more closely related.

Allen E.  I went to chicago accepted the fact that i would be a loyal voluteer to his came campaign in 2006 and i did that, when i was pasing his tshirt and buttons niggers in brooklyn or the east coast did not know who he was, but i believed that was the changed we needed, but remember in order to get whats good and find out whats bad you have to embrace chnaged, which is the problem with the community, aftre 8 years i was very dissapointed  ion Obama he did the same thing that white people have been doing to black people, enslave them, but i am not mad i learned and i moved on, that negro never did anything for black people he did more for white people and every okne else than he would ever do for his own people, than again i dont think he thinks he is black, if i stand up and say i will support Trump negros will come at me like i am doing something wrong and i am against black, but those same niggers are proud to support bloomberg and biden, this is when i thank and appreciate my parents for teaching me how to believe in my self and stand my own ground, niggers are as retarded as they come, they love their masters more than you think, why do you think niggers are killing each other, if they lov eeach other and hate white people for what they have done to them, every black person in America would be a terrorist since that what they call them, they would be killing the people who are killing them, instead they kill each other and run away or hide from the white cops, niggers are a cursed, an di would never consider my self a n*****, i am a black man who wants to see my race the number race on earth
