This actually bothers me to no end. The White House release President Obama's birth certificate for the world to see. Honestly, Obama shouldn't have to prove to anyone that he's a US citizen, especially to liars, haters and racists.
Here's what my Boo had to say:
We're not going to be able to solve our problems if we get distracted by sideshows and carnival barkers," Obama said.Yes, it's true that folks believed he was born in a different galaxy. But let's look at those people. Let's look at those idiots and fools who uses this drama to mask their racist and ignorant views. These people want to believe he's not one of us, because they can't handle the truth.
Obama did not specifically mention Donald Trump, but the prospective Republican presidential candidate and other critics have questioned whether Obama was born in Honolulu, Hawaii, on Aug. 4, 1961, and is therefore eligible for the presidency -- prompting today's extraordinary release.
In brief remarks at the White House, Obama said he knows he won't satisfy all the birthplace critics, but he pointedly added "I'm speaking to the vast majority of the American people."
"We do not have time for this kind of silliness," Obama said.
Obama -- who sent his personal lawyer to Hawaii this week to pick up the records -- also released letters from this month in which he and the lawyer requested copies of his birth certificate.
"The president believed it was becoming a major distraction from the issues we are having in this country," said communications director Dan Pfeiffer, who, like his boss, called the while thing a "fake controversy" and "a sideshow."
They can't handle the fact that this country is moving from the "America" they know. They can't handle that our president is a man of color. And, they can't handle that their bigotry towards race and sexual orientation is being called out and no longer tolerated in this country.
So I hope when these fools look at this birth certificate, some of them will see their own foolishness and their fear of change.
