Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-MN) indirectly questioned President Barack Obama’s citizenship Monday night.
“As far as I’m concerned, I think, if I decide to throw the hat in the ring, anybody could look at my birth certificate, I could care less,” she told Fox News’ Sean Hannity. “This is the easiest problem to solve. The president just has to give proof and verification, and there it goes. Either it’s real or it’s not.”
“Everybody should put their birth certificates on the table and not worry about it. It doesn’t have to be a toxic issue. Put your birth certificate in, end of story.”
FactCheck.org reported in 2008 that they had “seen, touched, examined and photographed the [president's] original birth certificate.” It has also been vouched for by the governor of Hawaii and numerous news agencies and a copy was posted to Obama’s campaign website the same year, well before it became a national topic.
