CNN report: Obama was born in the U.S., “period”

Pin it

Barack Obama birth certificate

Since some people out there really do still seem to think this issue is up for debate, CNN has conducted an investigation into President Obama's not-all-that-mysterious birth certificate. The conclusion? The president of the United States is, in fact, from the United States, "period."

The network even went all the way to Hawaii to confirm with relevant medical authorities that "he was absolutely born here in the state of Hawaii" and that his birth certificate is "absolutely authentic." It remains to be see what, if any, impact this will have on the four out of ten Republicans who still are in doubt on the issue and, you know, on Donald Trump. But maybe this means we're one step closer to a day when I never have to hear about this story again?
