White House Releases

Obama Birth Certificate

4/27/2011 6:28 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Donald Trump asked for it ... and now Donald Trump got it -- because the White House just released President Barack Obama's long-form birth certificate ... proving he was, in fact, born in Hawaii.

The document shows Obama's mother was 18 at the time she gave birth ... and his father was 25.

Obama directed his office to release the certificate because the Commander In Chief didn't believe the distraction was good for the country.

Obama held a news conference about the document -- and explained, "We’re not going to be able to solve our problems if we get distracted by sideshows and carnival barkers."

Of course, the conspiracy theorists will probably ask the obvious questions ... what took so long???? Is this document legit ... or a fake???

Duh, this is a certificate of live birth which the "birthers" have been debunking for ages now as not valid. No matter that's the only form of birth certificate the state of Hawaii releases to individuals, no matter who you are. In their fantasy world this isn't "real" do***entation of ones birth, whatever!

Nothing new here other then the fact TMZ finally discovered what's been freely available and discussed ad nauseam already.

That said i'm amused at how Donald has been using the "birther movement" like they tools they are for his own agenda. Quite amusing to watch them suck it up and not even realize they are being used by the Donald.

I think it is bs and more proof how disrespectful and racist our country is. the only reason they are questioning his birth certificate is because he isn't a white hillbilly christian. it is sad in times like these with so many things going on all people can focus on is if he is a citizen. grow up and get a life!

He's like Sarah Palin and Michele Bachmann. Stupid and loud and false. He doesn't care what lies he tells, he just wants attention. He's a misognynist, a bad business man, and a liar. He's like Charlie Sheen..a nut case dying for attention no matter how he gets it.

Well, this proves it. Obama came from an inter-racial marriage to a woman that was having sex at 17.

My guess is that they had to get married.

...and this was back in the 50's

YIKES

Let's face it, the real reason this was over an issue was because Obama ISN't white!! And don't say, "but he is bi-racial", because people look at him and they don't see white, they see what we all see, he is BLACK! No other president was ever questioned because they were white and since the all american stereo type is white, they were never doubted for being american. Racist bastard!

@Sofa Psychiatrist ("Is it statutory rape for a 25 year old man to have sex with a 17 year old girl?")

No, in Hawaii the age is 16 and under. His parents were married when she was 17.

Well it finally took Donald Trump to force Obama to release his so called birth certificate. All I want to know is: why did it take you so long?

This is not a birth certificate!! Its a certificate of live birth! 2 very different things. In Hawaii during that period it was very easy to go down after the birth of the child and request a certificate of live birth. What the "birthers" say is the mother of Obama got to Hawaii and then went down and requested a certificate of live birth. Really this proves nothing

@ Bonnie ("Where is the state seal that ALL birth certificates have? THIS SMELLS FAKE TO ME")

You would be one of those people who would never be satisfied wouldn't you? As you can tell by the image...the whole do***ent has not been displayed, the seal could be there...also, not all embossed seals appear when scanned. The File # & the Do***ent # are both on there...that makes he license legit!
