Barack Obama’s half-sister, Maya Soetoro-Ng has written a book, and as such she is in the unfortunate position of doing media interviews at the same time Donald Trump has Obama’s birth certificate writhing in the public’s conscience once again. Piers Morgan, Larry King’s replacement on CNN, interviews Soetoro-Ng. He asked Maya two questions: What do you think about the birth certificate controversy and about Donald Trump. That’s it. Ann Coulter also believe Obama was born in Hawaii and offers the same proof as Soetoro-Ng. Video below.
Sis says all the questions are “unfortunate,” and “a shame,” but offers nothing of her own to convince us. She does mention the governor and the Department of Health attestations (were they ever put in writing?) and mentions the birth announcement in a Hawaii newspaper. Hawaii’s Star Advertiser says she “answered questions about her brother’s birthplace,” but really, there were no questions designed to glean any real information. Morgan made an introductory statement, and then asked about her reaction to Donald Trump. No obvious question, like why the President of the United States would not just offer up his birth certificate. Source: The Blaze See the video here.
Coulter was on Hannity last night and said the “birther” issue has been ‘long debunked by other conservative outlets.,’ but she believes Donald is doing the country a service because, maybe now, all those doubters will understand that the matter is settled, as some big conservative machines have decided that he is Hawaii-born.
“Well, I think maybe I’ve been watching too much Charlie Sheen because Donald Trump seems perfectly sane to me,” Coulter said. “I don’t know where he gets this $2 million Obama has spent to keep his birth certificate — he posted his birth certificate on his web page. I am glad that Donald Trump is bringing it up so that people who haven’t been paying attention and don’t know that the American Spectator, Human Events, Fox News – you know, every conservative outlet has already shot down this rumor, which by the way, was started by the Hillary Clinton campaign.”
Coulter said she was unclear as to why the so-called long-form birth certificate had more validity than the other birth certificate Obama has produced. She noted that reputable conservative media outlets won’t touch the story any more and it is regularly reported on by liberal outlets.
Remember how Bill O’Reilly told us he actually saw Obama’s birth certificate and it proved Obama was born in Hawaii? Bill insisted that the birth certificate he saw was real. I notice he didn’t pull that one on Trump last week. But that claim is now gone. Now Bill leans on the two birth announcements reportedly in Hawaiian newspapers.
UPDATE: One of my readers left the following comment on this story:
I have a Certificate of Live birth given by the hospital I was born in. It looks real official and even has a raised seal. In 1980 I needed a passport to fly into Saudi Arabia to support Operation Elf One. Along with official transcripts from my military records and a letter from my wing commander, I was sent to the US Embassy in London to get the required passport. Embassy officials would not accept my Certificate of Live Birth as they required the actual birth certificate issued by county officials where I was born. The embassy issued me a temporary passport which stated I had not yet proved I was an American Citizen…I held a Secret Security Clearance at the time. I still have that temp passport. ~ BobF
It begs the questions, why has Obama not released his Certification of Live Birth? When did the Hawaiian government attest to his natural-born status in writing? How did Nancy Pelosi certify Obama as meeting Constitutional requirement to hold the Office of the United States of America – did she? She did not in Oklahoma. John Boehner did attest to John McCain’s meeting requirements of the Constitution. See the Coulter video here.
