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???

Come on Sammie in those days you didn't have to get a social security number at birth, you usually didn't get one until you started working..Geez...silly question.

Very true! Also this picture isn't the long for it's just a picture of the Certificate of Live Birth, which in Hawaii is legal proof of birth the same as a birth certificate, which here in MA is simply a piece of paper with NO signatures at all and a town stamp (ink not raised)

The fact that it took years to be released after being requested and then because of D Trump making such a big deal of it it appears? It may be very real but because of it being hidden for so long it makes one wonder. He is the president...he has the connections to get a fake anything.

In 1961 Blacks were referred to as Negro NOT African. You will note the Mother is listed as Caucasian. FYI Africa is not a Race it is a Continent.

Trump is an @ss along with all the other "birthers." Aren't there enough other REAL problems facing this country? People, give it up and get on with your lives!

I agree with Bonnie... where is the state seal that proves it's official? Obama produced a different birth certificate back in 2008 and the seal on that did not appear to be a valid state of Hawaii seal (see this at http://youtu.be/scjF5oB-JXk).

Has anyone in Kenya came forward to say that he was born there and have proof? Does it not matter that the doctors in Hawaii comfirmed his birth? Was John McCain born in the U.S or Panama?
Is Donald Trump hiding something on top of his head? Did Bush Lie?

My kids need a birth certificate to play youth soccer - anyone running for president should have to make their birth certificate available for public viewing. The question still remains...why DID it take so long for B.O. to release this do***ent? There would be no issue if he hadn't let this go on for so long. He has brought all of this on himself. No one in the media will ask this question...why??? Puppets. Does anyone out there have a Hawaii birth certificate from 1961 - does it look like Obama's?

Is this what Trump is seeking, the long form - this looks more like a hospital form not the State form with the State seal imprinted on it.

Keep in mind his cert. is from Hawaii. Different states have different birth certificates. My sisters and I were born in different cities in the same state and ours look completely different. You can't compare yours to his, that is silly. I held a job where one of my tasks was to identify false certificates and birth do***ents. Sorry, but this is, in fact, real. The only reason he probably waited to release it was this is a completely erroneous claim that was unworthy of a response. Consider the source. Who is Donald Trump to be taking a political stance? He is a loud-mouthed tv personality with no political experience. This is such a waste of time and insulting to the people who actually know what they're doing.

The problem is the crazies that have made this an issue won't believe ANY birth certificate that is presented - they will always have an excuse as to why it isn't real. We need to stop wasting our time on this and focus on the REAL problems our country has!
