Obama Just Trolled Trump And The Rest Of The Birthers

President Obama at the #ObamaSummit in Chicago: "This isn't where I was born.

Former PresidentBarack Obamacracked a joke on Tuesday night at the expense of PresidentDonald Trumpand other conspiracy theorists who claimedhe wasn’t born in the United States.  

“The reason I’m so excited to see you all here today in part is because this is where I started,” Obama said at the first Obama Foundation Summit in Chicago where he worked as a community organizer in the 1980s. 

“Now, this isn’t where I was born, I was born in Kenya,” he said to laughs, then added: “That’s a joke.”

Obama was actually born in Hawaii in 1961 and has released both his “short-form” and “long-form” birth certificates to prove it. Two Honolulu newspapers also printed birth announcements at the time.

After pushing the birther conspiracy theory for years,Trump eventually admittedthat Obama was indeed born in the United States. However, he has never apologized for spreading that falsehood.
