The Obama clan is are busy swanning about on Martha's Vineyard for their umpteenth luxury vacation this year, but there's one thing missing - Barack's Aunt Zeituni who's just down the pike aways in Boston living off the taxpayers. What's the problem, Barack? She is your favorite Aunt and she's now in the country legally after an immigration judge bought her ridiculous story they she needed asylum in the USA since she would be in danger of persecution if she went back home to Kenya:
Worse yet, Judge Shapiro acknowledged that Aunt Zeituni’s claims of fear of persecution in her previous applications were all lies. Quote: “Onyango’s testimony in February was sometimes confusing and inconsistent with what she said during her last request for asylum six years ago,” end quote.
Yes, Aunt Zeituni is a flagrant liar as well as a flagrant scofflaw. Yet Shapiro still allowed this latest claim.
There is no evidence that anything that’s happened to Aunt Zeituni since 2004 made her any kind of a target for persecution in Kenya. It is just something she claims — something she plucked out of the air, with no supporting evidence whatsoever. In a previous claim she said she had health problems that made her unable to walk. She did indeed show up to the February hearing in a wheelchair; but then she mysteriously walked out. She strolls around her Boston neighborhood, flaunting the expensive designer accessories she seems to have a fondness for.
She ought to fit in nicely with Michelle who has a great fondness for fashion too - check out this snappy number she wore Monday night at a fancy Vineyard eatery (h/t FR).
Of course, the Kenyan government isn't too happy with Zeituni's persecution fable, but that's because no one has explained to them that immigration law in the USA is mostly about lying illegal aliens as Zeituni's fancy legal team knew. (Question: did the taxpayers foot the bill for Zeituni's legal team or was it some deep-pocketed pals of Barack?) Anyhow, I am sure Mr. Diplomacy can send the Kenyans some more loot to salve their wounded feelings.
So, what's the holdup? Aunt Zeituni has her spiffy green dress that Barack bought her and her collection of fashion accessories, so all she needs is a ride. Now Barack could send a Marine helicopter, but maybe that's over the top even for the party happy Obamas. Not to worry, Howie Carr has an idea:
Here’s a suggestion: Call Sen. Kerry. You may have heard - his second wife’s first husband’s trust fund just bought the senator a new boat. Liveshot could sail The Botched Joke to Boston, pick up Auntie Zeituni at the Dorchester Yacht Club and bring her back to the islands. Maybe he and Mama T would even invite you over to Nantucket for dinner. From Brant Point, he could point out to you where Deval’s wind turbines will be going up to destroy the view.
Get cracking, Barry - the party is almost over ... in more ways than one.
