Skip to comments.Obama: 'I was born in Hawaii,' wink, wink (taunts Trump, complements press on digging up truth)

Barack Obama opened last nights White House Correspondents Dinner an annual chuckle-fest with D.C. reporters and pop culture celebrities with a pair of jokes and a wink about his supposed Hawaii birthplace.
He began with more veiled joke alluding to April 28 of last year, when the White House released to the press a copy of his purported long-form birth certificate, a move prompted in part by calls from Donald Trump to see evidence of Obamas eligibility to be president.
My fellow Americans, we gather during a historic anniversary, Obama said. Last year at this time, in fact on this very weekend, we finally delivered justice to one of the worlds most notorious individuals.
Video screens in the room then flashed a photo of Trump.
Obama then explained he was advised to reintroduce himself to America.
My name is Barack Obama. My mother was born in Kansas. My father was born in Kenya. And I was born, of course, the sitting president said with a mischievous, knowing wink, in Hawaii.

Barry knows the posse is coming for him!
Barry’s Year of Living Dangerously continues...with more humiliation of Trump and taunting of constitutionalists...
Compliment. Bam doesn’t complement anything. (He seldom compliments, either.)
Regardless of whether or not he was born in Hawaii, his father was never a US citizen.
Today, it might be better phrased with ...
There goes the nation.
If he’s not worried about it then why make joles. Seems he’s a bit more concerned then he would have us believe.
I sincerely hope that he’s terrified of losing and walking out of the WWH straight into handcuffs.
we got him
I meant “jokes”.
As was the plan all along, you are assuming you know whom was his father. So far, there is no solid proof of that reality.Ayers wrote his ‘autobiographies’, and we know what Billy the Bomber is, and we have watched now for more than four years as little barry bastard commie has lied openly to the world, so why would we accept the unsubstantiated assertion that an African exchange student was little bastard’s father? ... Look in High School Year Books from around the Seattle area, for from 1959 to 1061 and see if you can find a better match, I say. I don’t beleieve anything about this sonofabitch in the Oval Office, except that he is there.
It's all just a joke to him. But some of us still care.
Is he still a citizen of Indonesia? Was he a foreign student?
Just another opportunity for this narcissist to talk about himself.
Obama is defending himself by these comments, not doubling down. It is interesting to note that Obama had to produce the long form of birth certificate (which the press said didn't exist) after Trump pressured him. Albeit, the long form is just as much a forgery as the short form, but he did produce another document.
The joke is on us, America, and it ain’t funny.
Please fix the spelling of the intended word “compliment” in the thread title, if convenient...
The joke is on the American people. While the smiling and winking Marxist makes jokes about his radical agenda and being born in Kenya, the elites and idiot celebrities in attendance laugh and congratulate themselves for being part of the “in” crowd. Meanwhile, Barry has destroyed the economy, given the Middle East to the Muslim Brotherhood, and generally been a disgraceful president while still managing to play 100+ rounds of golf.
I despise these elitist pricks. All of them, Republicans and Democrats alike. The country is falling apart while they stuff their fat faces with expensive food and booze. I hope President Romney follows Rush Limbaugh’s example and boycotts this self-congratulatory and self-indulgent tradition that is an example everything about our political system that is corrupt and disgusting.
The thing is, you don’t use phony documents, like he has since his first ice cream scooping job, unless you don’t have real ones.
But I did find it funny that even his writers thought to play with his birth. And his strategists probably thought that was good — if you joke about something, it shows that it’s not real. Not. Why do people believe every joke Jon Stewart says is real? Why do people think that from Sarah Palin’s porch you can see Matruska dolls dancing and old men playing chess and drinking vodka?
Just a thought, Frank. Some credit on that copyright.
