Nothing in American politics is more ridiculous than the idiotic “birther” movement. In case you haven’t been paying attention (since 2008), conservatives the likes of Donald Trump and Brian Kolfage have been perpetrating the lie that President Obama was born in Kenya.
Probably their best piece of evidence was going to a village and asking if they knew who Barack Hussein Obama was. The villagers answered “of course.” When asked if he was born there, they answered, “well, yes he was.”
They failed to mention that his father, Barack Hussein Obama, was born in the village, which is why the villagers answered the way they did.
After years of false accusations and speculation, official birth certificates and even an announcement in a Honolulu newspaper from 1961, the right-wing extremists still can’t seem to get past their idiotic conspiracy theories.
President Obama puts that into perspective in this brilliant comment from the White House Correspondents’ Dinner.
Watch President Obama put the “birther’ issue to bed with one hilarious sentence.
