Boris Johnson has criticised the U.S. President Barack Obama and suggested his attitude to Britain might be based on his “part-Kenyan” heritage and “ancestral dislike of the British empire”.

Writing a column for The Sun newspaper the outgoing Mayor of London recounted a story about a bust of Winston Churchill purportedly being removed from White House.

“Some said it was a snub to Britain. Some said it was a symbol of the part-Kenyan President’s ancestral dislike of the British empire – of which Churchill had been such a fervent defender,” he wrote.

Obama responds. Says he’s a Churchill fan.

To those screaming “racist”, could they offer an alternative explanation for what seems Obama’s visceral disdain for the West generally and Britain (and Israel) specifically?
