The 33-second clip, released Tuesday by “Inside Edition,” shows Mark Obama Ndesandjo, who is the President’s younger half-brother, awkwardly reuniting with then-candidate Obama on a night during the 2008 presidential race. Ndesandjo, who shares a father with Obama, is seen waiting in a room when the President enters.
“How are you? Good to see you,” Obama says as he embraces his sibling, slapping him on the back six times. “How you been, man?”
The reunion, which appeared to take Obama by surprise, happened just before the then-senator was set to debate Hillary Clinton in a Democratic primary debate.
