Still want more proof that President Barack Obama was born in the United States of America?
Well, Obama’s 2012 campaign is making his birth certificate available to everyone…in shirts, and mugs.
“The only thing we can do is laugh at it — and make sure as many other people as possible are in on the joke,” Obama’s campaign said in an email to supporters.
Last month, Obama released a detailed Hawaii birth certificate in response to critic’s claims that he wasn’t born in America.
The so-called “birthers” had questioned why the president wouldn’t release his birth certificate since taking office.
Donald Trump—who became Obama’s lead critic concerning the issue last month—took credit for the release at the time saying, “He should have done it a long time ago. I am really honored to play such a big role in hopefully, hopefully getting rid of this issue.”
After the White House released the certificate, Obama said: “We do not have time for this kind of silliness.”
Well, that silliness just got sillier.
For $25 (or more if you wish to donate more) the president’s supporters can own the shirt.
The front of the shirt shows Obama smiling and the caption reads: Made in the USA.
On the back of the white shirt is the president’s full birth certificate with barackobama.com printed on the bottom.
Or for $15 Obama’s supporters can get a coffee mug with the same picture of Obama on the mug.
“If the facts can’t make these ridiculous smears go away,” his campaign said in the email, “we can at least have a little fun with it.”
The birth certificate states that Obama was born in Hawaii to an American mother and Kenyan father.
During his 2008 campaign he released a standard short form before requesting his original birth certificate from Hawaii officials last month.
