According to the Boston Herald, President Obama's uncle -- Onyango Obama -- couldn't hold back his giggles during his court appearance this morning.
As you may recall, the president's uncle has been illegally living in the United States for “at least” 19 years and was arrested for drunk driving last month. But during a brief appearance before a judge at Framingham District Court today, Obama (the uncle) was "visibly amused at the media spectacle, stifling laughter several times."
Obama was accompanied in court today by two attorneys and an unidentified male supporter. He and his friend giggled in the front row of the court at the media assembled for the hearing. The courtroom was packed, but mostly with other defendants hauled in for the usual round of arraignments at the county court located in suburban Boston.
Breaking the law is no laughing matter, but imagining about how much the wording of this story must be causing blood to pour from birthers' eyes kind of is:
His attorney, P. Scott Bratton, did, however, tell the Herald that Obama, who has been living illegally in the United States for nearly 20 years...
Middlesex District Attorney Gerard T. Leone has also vowed to prosecute Obama to the fullest extent possible on the OUI charge...
