In a move that will hopefully silence the drone of the “birther” movement and its latest spokesperson, Donald Trump, President Obama released his long form birth certificate to the public today. In an early morning news conference, the White House said it had “proof positive” that POTUS was, in fact, born in Hawaii.  

The official document, which is on view on the White House website, is signed by the physician who delivered Mr. Obama in Honolulu, Hawaii on August 4th, 1961.

White House Communications director Dan Pfeiffer called the “birther” movement a “fake controversy” and “sideshow” that was a distraction from real issues like government spending.

If only Donald Trump would take this is as an opportunity to eat some humble pie. Instead he said, “We have to look at it, a lot of people will look at it, experts will look at it.”
