Description

President Obama wants to see your birth certificate. In a reversal of roles, it was Obama asking to see hard evidence that Andrew Wupperman, 6, of Orlando, was actually born in Hawaii. The president has gone through years of being accused by a sliver of conservative “birthers” who do not believe he was born in Hawaii, but rather Kenya or Indonesia. On Saturday, when Obama stopped in the Gator Dockside restaurant in Orlando during a campaign bus tour, he met Andrew. Someone told the president the boy was born in Obama’s native state. Obama lit up and flashed the shaka sign with his thumb and pinky fingers spread wide, then asked “You were born in Hawaii? You have a birth certificate?”
