Obama’s half-sister joins eligibility talk-show tour
President Obama’s half-sister, Maya Soetoro-Ng, has joined other celebrities apparently on a tour of talk shows endorsing the belief that Obama is eligible to be president of the United States, even though suspicions about a foreign birth have not been disproven, because his original long-form, hospital-generated birth certificate and other documents remain concealed.
Some also argue from a constitutional standpoint that since Obama’s father was a Kenyan national, Obama was not a “natural born Citizen” as the U.S. Constitution requires for presidents, irrespective of birth location.
Soetoro responded to questions about her brother’s eligibility and his newly announced campaign to stay in office for another four years.
“I think it’s unfortunate,” she told Morgan when asked about the controversy.
“He was born in Hawaii. There is a tremendous amount of proof that has already been presented,” she said.
