(NECN) – His drunk driving arrest surprised the political world, even the President himself.

Now Onyango Obama, the half uncle of Barack Obama, has joined a long list of presidential relatives behaving badly.

But President Obama certainly isn’t the first president embarrassed by a family member and Joe@Batt has compiled a long list.

Joe Battenfeld is here to give us the lowlights.

Most people have them: the uncle, cousin, brother, yes even mother that they’d rather not talk about.

But when it’s a president with an unruly relative, it’s not only embarrassing but politically damaging.

And you’d be surprised just how many presidents have had this problem.
