Sarah Palin Backs Up Donald Trump, Obama "Birther" Crusade

by at . Comments

In February, Sarah Palin said the "birther" issue - whether President Obama was really born in the U.S. - was a "distraction" from more important issues.

Over the weekend, though, Palin defended real estate mogul Donald Trump's recent attempts to raise doubts about Obama's citizenship, saying:

"I appreciate that the Donald wants to spend his resources on something that so interests him and so many Americans, you know more power to him."

Perhaps fueled by Trump's rise in the polls, former Alaska governor's remarks on Sunday seems to signal a shift in her opinions on the "birther" issue.

"Obviously there is something that the president doesn't want people to see, that he sees going to great lengths to make sure it isn't shown," she said.

"And I think that's perplexing for a lot of people."

The issue is perplexing from either perspective.

Long ago, the president released a certificate of live birth which many non-partisan watchdog groups say definitively proves he was born in the U.S.

"It's kind of ludicrous at this point," Dr. Chiyome Fukino, the former director of Hawaii's Department of Health, said in a recent interview with NBC.

Fukino says that he has reviewed Barack Obama's birth certificate more than once and said that "birthers" and other doubters will never be satisfied.

Even Bill O'Reilly has called out Trump for his grandstanding, while others, such as John Legend, have alleged that "birther" allegations are racist.

What do you think? Was Obama born in the U.S.?

The requirements to run against Obama is a dialogue without the Gargantuan Fear of the Race-Card being shoved down ones throat. Very Few have that Nerve :: & for a Woman to have it; Say Like Palin is Almost Revolting... One could Somehow Rationalize A Man like Trump having more Nerve than Oneself!! So he may Need to be the Candidate ??

Fuck all of you. The motherfucker is not from this country he is anti-american and he is out to ruin The United States and he is doing a pretty good job. If he was born here he should just show it and move on, but he can't because he was NOT BORN HERE. So get yall's heads out of you'r ass's it's not about race it about saving this country from the worst president in US history.

I agree that it's a race issue. Nobody would be asking any questions if he was white. Whether or not Trump realizes it, he's being extremely racist, and it's not cool. It shocks me that crap like this is still happening in the US. How sad.

who really gives a flying fuck??? it obviously doesnt matter who runs your country......cuz its still as corrupt as its ever been. Trump wont fix jack shit if hes elected and i dont even know how palin got into politics cuz i thought you actually needed an education for that. Its pretty fuckin sad when the possible future leaders of your country are just attention starved idiots/wannabe celebrities. Looks like 2012 could actually be then end.

@shannon I agree with you that it has everything to do with race, but STRONGLY disagree about Obama doing a bad job as president! He can't do everything he wanted to do immediately. So far he has gotten more things done in two years then Bush ever got done in eight!

this whole thing is very race related, the only reason ppl are acting this way is simply cuz obama is black. NO ONE would be giving him a second glance if he was white, its so ridiculous. i was a huge obama supporter when he was first elected but hes doing a crappy job as president, i dont care for him anymore. so why dont ppl stick with critisizing his skills, or lack thereof, & stop being such racists.... its disgusting & pathetic.
