Obama releases birth certificate – calls for end to “silliness”

Fact - President Obama was born in the United States.

A frustrated President Barack Obama has ordered The White House to release copies of his birth certificate to the media following a sustained campaign by Republican hardliners and possible presidential candidate Donald Trump alleging that Obama is not United States born so therefore cannot be a legitimate President.

The full birth certificate clearly shows that President Obama was born in Honolulu’s Kapiolani Hospital on 4th August 1961.

“We do not have time for this kind of silliness,” Obama told reporters at the White House. “I’ve been puzzled at the degree to which this (story) just kept on going.”

“Normally I would not comment on something like this,” the president said. But the country has “some enormous challenges out there” that it will not be able to effectively meet “if we’re distracted.”

President Obama released the short form version of his birth certificate in 2008, but this did not convince the growing “birther” movement.

A recent poll by CNN/Opinion Research Corp. showed that nearly 75% of Americans believe Obama was definitely or probably born in the United States. But more than 4 out of 10 Republicans, believe he probably or definitely was not born in America.

Donald Trump is clearly one of those. After the certificate was released, Trump said that he is “very proud” of himself for helping to bring about the release of the document.

“I’ve accomplished something nobody else was able to accomplish,” Trump said. “I’d want to look at (the birth certificate), but I hope it’s true so that we can get on to much more important matters.”

Trump says “Obama should have (released the certificate) a long, long time ago.”

Newswarped gets a little frustrated with attention seekers like Trump who seize on side issues and make them mainstream. Trump even had the gall to blame the media for repeatedly bringing up the issue.

This website has not reported on the issue before, mainly because it is just another conspiracy theory with no basis in fact. It is just a bunch of people who don’t like having a black democrat as president.

President Obama was quite right when he said there is a “segment of people for which, no matter what we put out, this issue will not be put to rest.”

Now can we focus on poverty, disease, war and terrorism? Please can Mr Trump and his bitter band of right-wing nutcases please do something they have never achieved before and STF up.
