Barack Obama has moved to quash “birther” conspiracy theories alleging he was not born in the United States as the White House released his long-form birth certificate. Mr Obama said he was bemused over the conspiracy theories over his birthplace, and said that the obsession over the “sideshow” issues was a distraction in a “serious time”.

“We’re not going to solve our problems if we get distracted by carnival acts and sideshow barkers, We do not have time for this kind of silliness, we’ve got big stuff to do, I’ve got big stuff to do,

” he said.

Earlier, Jay Carney, the White House press secretary, said:

“The president feels this (controversy) is bad for the country, that it is not healthy for the political debate.”

Mr Obama’s 2008 presidential campaign had previously released a shorter regular birth certificate issued by Hawaii authorities after conservative critics and pundits fanned rumors that he was not American born. The version released by the White House on Wednesday was a copy of a long-form, original document made at the time of his birth and kept since in official records in Obama’s native state.

  1. Mr. Obama did very well i hope now Donald Trump will calm up i think this matter will ends with this action (Release of Obama’s birth certificate).

  2. I can’t believe such a trivial issue as Obama’s birth certificate has been the central topic of the last few weeks and it has even taken priority over a number of much more important issues that the country faces in the area of economy or national security.
