Brad Pitt & Barack Obama are Related

The View gals asked Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama this morning to help clear up the rumors that he’s related to Brad Pitt.

“I guess we are ninth cousins something removed or something,” Barack said.

Jokingly he added, “I think he got the better looking side of the gene pool.”

Barbara Walters couldn’t agree more: “We thought you were very sexy looking (applause). Don’t you think so? (to audience)”

Apparently, the other Democratic presidential candidate, Hillary Clinton, is cousins with Pitt‘s partner, Angelina Jolie, twice removed.

Um, yeah. Just so you know! Watch the clip of Barack on The View here.

    Yeah, Angelina and Hillary have such similar legs. Ha! Hilary’s are like tree trunks and Angelina’s are like twigs.

    Obama was great on the view. Elisabeth looked and acted professional, Sherri was okay, Joy was joyful, Barbara was rather ditzy and Whoopi was just plain ANNOYING. Also she was the only one who did not look professional wearing jeans and her father’s shirt. from the 80′s

    Anytime anybody else says something especially Sherri she always gotta screw her face up etc. I guess she playing her game to keep her job but bi-t-ch needs to go into retirement because i ain’t buying your sister act

    it is better to have a thin legs than a woman 40 something showing her sagging boobs and shrinking vjajajay :lol:

    Well I hope Hillary goes on The View too, so it’s equal, and the target audience of The View is women afterall.

    The publicity is a bit stomach churning, as if past presidents have appeared on such chat shows to gain votes in recent decades, the populist vote is really sickening.

  • passing through

    Sheesh…this story/news is like 2 months old. Why was it re-issued? Possibly because nobody paid any attention to it the last time!

    Happy TGIF BAMPZS Fans!!!

    I admire Brad and Angie from not being vocal as to who they are supporting for the Presidential nomination. Angie through her humanitarian work has learned the importance of collaboration between two parties to achieve a common goal. Both have had close encounters with the Clintons, I wonder if they are leaning towards Hilary, just a thought.

  • Frenchy

    Yeah right LOL!!!!

    That means Obama is related to Jesse James ROTFLMAO!!!!!!!!

    Good morning to all the fans. :)

    This morning on the radio I heard that according to some poll (I’m not sure which because I wasn’t paying that much attention until I heard their names), Brad and Angelina are the #1 couple that world travelers would love to run into.

    Enjoy your day everyone. :)

  • WTF?

    How is Brad Pitt related to everyone? What’s going on with that? Every couple of months you have some moron doing geneology links linking Brad to flavor of the month. Who next? Brad is cousins with Britney Spears? Dam!

  • krung krung

    Hello. Obama’s mother was white. The New England Historic Genealogical Society did a family tree on him.
    Pitt was found to be a ninth cousin linked back to Edwin Hickman, who died in Virginia in 1769:

    ” Pitt was found to be a ninth cousin linked back to Edwin Hickman, who died in Virginia in 1769.”

    “Obama, whose mother was white and from Kansas, is also linked to British Prime Minister Sir Winston Churchill. It was previously reported that he is also a distant cousin of Vice President Dick Cheney.

    “Obama’s maternal ancestry includes the mid-Atlantic States and the South,” said Christopher Child, a genealogist with NEHGC that dates back to
    1845 and describes itself as the United States’ oldest and largest non-profit genealogical organization.

    Meanwhile Senator Clinton and Jolie are ninth cousins twice removed linked by Jean Cusson of St. Sulpice, Quebec, who died in 1718.”

    Why do people think Obama and Brad aren’t related, because Obama is black? Obama is a bi-racial person. He’s related to Brad on his mother’s side. FFS his father was a black man from Kenya. Grow up people
