We're glad to see that this RIDICULOUS and RACIST - and yes, that's exactly what it is - issue can now be put to rest, but we're still infuriated that it actually had to come to this!
After being relentlessly badgered by
Donald Trump his political opponents - and despite having already made public a shorter version prior to his election - President Barack Obama released his birth certificate today, proving ONCE AND FOR ALL that he was born Barack Hussein Obama II at 7:24pm on August 4th, 1961, at Kapiolani Maternity and Gynecological Hospital in Honolulu, HA.
White House spokesman Jay Carney says:
"The president feels this was bad for the country, that it's not healthy for our political debate."
And check out the President's official address on the matter (above), which we think hits the nail right on the head!
Agreed 100%! Such pointless nonsense!
And frankly, such an embarrassment to this country. We cannot give him enough credit for being so collected and frank about all of this.
Of course, because GOD FORBID HE BE WRONG, Donald Trump now claims that he wants to look at it himself to ensure its authenticity!
We didn't realize that he was the authority on verifying the legitimacy of legal documents!
Phew! Thank goodness he's involved then!
"Today I'm very proud of myself, because I've accomplished something that no one else has been able to accomplish. I want to look at it, but I hope it's true so that we can get on to much more important matters … he should have done it a long time ago. We have to look at it, we have to see … is it real? Is it proper? What's on it? But I hope it checks out beautifully. I am really honored, frankly, to have played such a big role in hopefully, hopefully getting rid of this issue."
HONORED for getting rid of the issue?! It's YOUR FAULT that there was an issue!
Ugh. Just deplorable!
That's it. We don't want to talk about this anymore.
It's done, Donald! Now admit that you were wrong, and STFU about it!
