Sean Hannity: Why Didn’t Obama ‘Hand Over His Birth Certificate Like Everybody Else?’
On his radio show on Wednesday, Sean Hannity decided to beat a dead horse yet again, questioning why it took so long for President Obama to release his birth certificate.
“I actually think at this point the president wants – he loves to be the victim, I’m beginning to notice, a victim of birtherism… I just thought it was strange that he, the president, didn’t hand over his birth certificate like everybody else,” Hannity said.
Obama did release a “certification of live birth” in 2008 during the campaign and ultimately gave in and released the long-form birth certificate in 2011.
“Now I know the president felt he was uniquely qualified to deal with issues involving the Muslim world because he went to school in Jakarta as a child, a Muslim school, and he said one of the most beautiful things – he said this to Nicholas Kristof at The New York Times – one of the most beautiful sights in the world is Muslim prayer at sunset,” Hannity went on. “He said those things in that interview. It was in Jakarta.”
Hannity then noted that Donald Trump offered $50 million for Obama’s birth records, saying, “This went on forever. I just thought it was odd, not to turn over your birth certificate.”
Of course, the birthers never died, they just got pushed off mainstream networks.
Just last week, Christopher Monckton wrote a column for WND in which he asserts, as Sheriff Joe Arpaio did, that Obama’s birth certificate is a fake (just like climate change).
