Obama’s campaign creates birth-certificate T-shirts

Pin it

In your face, Donald Trump! Obama's camp has released a T-shirt bearing Obama's face on the front and his official birth certificate on the back. And the best part is, they're being sold for twenty-five dollars a pop to support Obama's re-election campaign. His campaign manager wrote in an email:

"Last year, the president said, ‘I can't spend all of my time with my birth certificate plastered on my forehead.' This is about as close as we can get. There's really no way to make this stuff completely go away. The only thing we can do is laugh at it — and make sure as many other people as possible are in on the joke."

I'm in on the joke, I get it, I'm laughing. And part of me enjoys the fact that Obama's camp has figured out a way to make money off of this silly scandal. But the other part of me (there are only two parts) wonders if Obama's camp couldn't have donated the sales to something more in need of money than his re-election campaign. Not to be a pain in the ass, but maybe, like… Planned Parenthood?
