WH Trying to Squash Birth Certificate ‘Issue’ By Facing It

Evidence already shows that some people will continue with what President Obama calls this “silliness,” but the White House has made the President’s birth certificate public for all to see, definitively, once and for all.

“We do not have time for this kind of silliness,” Obama said during a presser this morning. “I’ve got better stuff to do.” According to Politico, the President sent a legal team to Hawaii to get a special copy of the certificate.

“At a time of great consequence for this country – when we should be debating how we win the future, reduce our deficit, deal with high gas prices, and bring stability to the Middle East, Washington, DC, was once again distracted by a fake issue,” White House comms director Dan Pfeiffer said in a statement. According to Politico, Pfeiffer added that “the White House hopes to defeat the issue by addressing it directly.” Fingers crossed.

Rather than being shamed by this nonsense, Donald Trump appeared at his own press conference to squawk about how proud he is. This man is in the lead for the GOP presidential nomination.
