President Obama sat down for a talk with Oprah Winfrey yesterday (it will air on her show Monday) and discussed the controversy over his birthplace.
Focused on Obama's birth certificate, or lack thereof (he released it this week), the “birther” movement questioned his citizenship and eligibility for office.
Typical of our Commander-in-Chief, he laughed it off.
Obama looked relaxed as he said of the birth certificate controversy: “Can I just say I was there, so I knew. I knew I had been born. I remember it.”
Barack can joke about "birthers" ... at least a little.
First Lady Michelle Obama, sitting by her husband’s side, raised her hands and said: “He was born here!” But clearly they only find it funny to a point.
President Obama went on to lambast the critics of his birthplace as “carnival barkers going around trying to get attention instead of solving problems”.
