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.

    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

    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.

    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!

    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.

    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. :)

    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!
