Sarah Palin said today she “appreciates”Â Donald
Trump’s repeated questioning of where President
Obama was born, saying that though she believes he
was born in Hawaii, “there is something there that the
president doesn’t want people to see on that birth
certificate.” Palin’s remarks on the “Judge Jeanine”
show on Fox News came as the Hawaiian state health
official that reviewed Obama’s birth certificate
denounced conspiracy theorists as “silly.”
“It’s kind of ludicrous at this point,” Dr. Chiyome
Fukino, the former director of Hawaii’s Department of
Health said inÂ an interview with NBC, adding that
“birthers,” or those who have been questioning where
the president was born, will never be satisfied.
“They’re going to question the ink on which it was
written or say it was fabricated,” Fukino said. “The
whole thing is silly.”
Fukino said she has inspected Obama’s “long form”
birth certificate twice — once in the run up to the
2008 presidential election and again in July of 2009.
Both times Fukino made public statements indicating
that she had inspected the certificate and that it was
in fact accurate.
“It is real, and no amount of saying it is not, is going
to change that,” Fukino said.
She also said the highly questioned “certification of
live birth” that was obtained by the Obama campaign
in 2007 is the standard document that any citizen
requesting their birth certificate from the state of
Hawaii would receive.
“What he got, everybody got. He put out exactly what
everybody gets when they ask for a birth certificate,”
Trump, who is mulling a possible run for the
presidency in 2012, challenged Obama’s place of
birth on the “Today” show last week and today on
CNN’s “State of the Union,” despite the overwhelming
evidence that he was born in the USA.
