Obama Tries To End Rumours Over Birthplace

US President Barack Obama has posted his full birth certificate on the internet, in an effort to finally kill speculation he was born abroad.


It appears the only person who could rile the birth certificate out of Obama was none other than Donald 'YOU'RE FIRED' Trump!

With the release of the full birth documentation of Barack Hussein Obama II, the 'Birther Movement' that was started might finally come to rest. What is the 'Birther' Movement you ask? Right wingers and skeptics had decided that they will question the place of birth of President Obama, in order to highlight the fact that he wasn't an American. They claimed that Obama should be disqualified from his position as the President of the United States because he was born in Kenya - the country of birth of his father.

Now many thanks to Donald Trump, the issue of Obama's 'birth' is finally solved!

A couple of questions need to be asked though i, what will happen to Donald Trump's credibility now? and ii, What will FOX talk about now that the Birther Movement is... dead?

US President Barack Obama has posted his full birth certificate on the internet, in an effort to finally kill speculation he was born abroad. The issue of the leader's origins had become increasingly prominent, with recent opinion polls indicating one in four Americans believed he was born in another country.

Released on the White House website, the form says Barack Hussein Obama II was born at 7.24pm on August 4 1961, at Kapiolani Hospital, within the city limits of Honolulu, Hawaii.

It is signed by the delivery doctor, Obama's mother and the local registrar.

Only people born in the US can become president according to a vague clause in the constitution.Members of the "birther" movement contended that disqualified Mr Obama from his post. Sceptics also suggested he was born in his father's home country of Kenya.

And potential election rival, businessman Donald Trump, had repeatedly questioned whether the president was born in the US.

Mr Obama's campaign team failed to put the matter to bed in 2008 when releasing the standard short form birth certificate issued by the state of Hawaii.

But the president said officials in Hawaii had been persuaded to make an exception and release the full version of the document because the debate had become a sideshow.
"We're not going to be able to solve our problems if we get distracted by sideshows," he said.

"Normally I would not comment on something like this, because obviously there's a lot of stuff swirling in the press on any given day and I've got other things to do."

But he said the matter had become the dominant news story - even in the week the federal budget was announced.

"We've got some big challenges ahead," he said.

"We're not going to be able to do it if we just make stuff up and pretend that facts are not facts. We do not have time for this kind of silliness."
