So the White House released President Barak Obama’s birth certificate in long-form today. Yeehaw. I guess.
I totally don’t see what the big friggin’ deal is. Who cares if Obama doesn’t want to share the details of his birth,. Do you really think he would have been able to get as far as the White House if he wasn’t a natural born citizen? I mean, really! There are people who do nothing else during election times than research the lives and backgrounds of each candidate.
Call me crazy, but there are far more important things going on in the country that we need to pay attention to. This whole Barak Obama birth certificate drama crap is just another tactic for Obama haters to continue to hate Obama and not focus on the real issues.
How the H-E-double-hockey sticks is America supposed to move forward in a positive way when the people with the power are paying attention to stupid sh*t instead of the stuff that is actually important? You know, like the economy, healthcare, and equal rights.
Obama is right…..this is all just a bunch of silliness.
Before Wednesday’s early-morning White House briefing, members of the press corps received word that Obama was planning to make a statement about the release of his long-form birth certificate. By the time 9:45 a.m. rolled around, the top anchors from all the networks were front and center in the briefing room.
Once there, they received a presidential scolding for their concern with “silliness.” Obama began his five-minute statement with the complaint that he wouldn’t be able to get the networks to break into their regularly scheduled programming for a speech on policy proposals.
“I know that there is going to be a segment of people for which no matter what we put out, this issue will not be put to rest,” Obama said. “But I am speaking for the vast majority of the American people as well as for the press. We do not have time for this kind of silliness. We have better stuff to do. I have got better stuff to do. We have got big problems to solve.”
“We are not going to be able to do it if we are distracted, we are not going to be able to do it if we spend time vilifying each other … if we just make stuff up and pretend that facts are not facts, we are not going to be able to solve our problems if we get distracted by side shows and carnival barkers,” the president declared earlier.
He’s talking to you, crazy Birthers! And your crazy Birther mouthpiece Donald Trump. Who, by the way, will never be President if he doesn’t come clean about what the flying fart is going on with the monstrosity he calls his hair. A long-form birth certificate is nothing compared to complete hairdo-insanity. How do we expect foreign leaders to take the U.S. seriously when our leader can’t even have a descent haircut?
In an effort to hopefully kill this topic once and for all, President Obama used money from his personal account (not taxpayer money) to fly Judith Corley from the president’s counsel firm Perkins Coie to Hawaii and pick up the two certified copies that the President had personally requested via letter to Loretta J. Fuddy, the director of health at the State of Hawaii.
At the White House briefing, press assistants gave each member of the press corps a packet of photocopies including the long-form birth certificate, the certificate of birth first released in 2008, and the White House’s legal correspondence with Hawaii’s Department of Health.
Shortly after the birth certificate was released on Wednesday morning, Donald Trump – being the pompous ass that he is – took credit for the whole thing. During a self-serving press conference Trump held in New Hampshire, he said he feels honored to have been such a huge part of the birth certificate reveal.
“I am really honored to play such a big role in hopefully, hopefully getting rid of this issue,” he said.
“Today I’m very proud of myself, because I’ve accomplished something that no one else has been able to accomplish,” said Trump on the release of the president’s birth certificate, according to NBC News. “I want to look at it, but I hope it’s true. … But he should have done it a long time ago.”
