Video: Obama Jokes About Birth Certificate
For someone who refuses to discuss or release information about his original birth certificate, President Obama certainly likes to make jokes about it.
The latest quip came this week at a fundraiser in Boston.
“There’s no weakness in us trying to reach out and seeing if we can find common ground,” he told attendees. “Now, there are going to be times where we can’t. I was born in Hawaii. What can I say? I mean, I just … I can’t change those facts.”
The “fact,” however, still has not been publicly documented, as he’s not only refused to release his original birth certificate – substituting instead a computer-generated birth record summary from the state – he’s also battled court requests for his school records, college records, records from his years in the Illinois legislature and other documents typically available for prominent leaders.
