The family tree for U.S. President Obama shows he’s related — distantly — to two of his harshest critics, Sarah Palin and Rush Limbaugh, Ancestry.com said.
Obama and Palin — the Republican vice presidential nominee in 2008 — are 10th cousins, related by a common ancestor named John Smith, the family history resource based in Provo, Utah, said on its Web site Wednesday.
Richard Terrell is the common link between Obama and conservative talk show host Limbaugh, who are actually 10th cousins once removed.
