On Wednesday, the White House released Obama’s “Certificate of Live Birth.” The Wall Street Journal reports: “The White House said Hawaii doesn’t generally release long-form birth certificates but did so at the president’s request.”
The president also held a five-minute press conference this morning to address the issue, in which he said: “Normally, I wouldn’t comment on something like this. I’ve got other things to do.”
According to Politico, the president also said:
“Now, this issue has been going on for two, two-and-a-half years now. I have to say that over the last two-and-a-half years, I have watched with bemusement. I’m puzzled to the degree. … We had every official in Hawaii, Democrat and Republican, every news outlet that has investigated this, confirm that, yes, in fact, I was born in Hawaii, August 4, 1961.
