Vice President Dick Cheney said Friday he hasn’t reached out to “Cousin Barack” Obama since reports that the two share a distant relatives.
In an interview for CNBC’s “Kudlow & Company,” Cheney was asked whether he and Obama, a Democratic presidential candidate, have discussed their ancestral link.
“Cousin Barack?” Cheney said. “No, we haven’t — haven’t had the opportunity to talk about it.”
Lynne Cheney, the vice president’s wife, told MSNBC last week she uncovered the long-ago ties between the two while researching her ancestry for her latest book, “Blue Skies, No Fences.”
