Ex-Hawaii official denounces 'ludicrous' birther claims

Comments follow statements by Donald Trump questioning legitimacy of president's birth record

The Hawaiian state health official who personally reviewed Barack Obama's original birth certificate has affirmed again that the document is "real" and denounced "conspiracy theorists" in the so-called "birther" movement for continuing to spread bogus claims about the issue.

"It’s kind of ludicrous at this point," Dr. Chiyome Fukino, the former director of Hawaii's Department of Health, said in a rare telephone interview with NBC.

Fukino, sounding both exasperated and amused, spoke to a reporter in the aftermath of Donald Trump's statements on the NBC Today show last week questioning whether Obama has a legitimate birth certificate.

Trump, who says he is considering a run for president, repeated his claims on CNN's "State of the Union" Sunday, saying that "nobody has any informati

  • Frustrated libs? But it's fine and dandy if you whack nuts accuse Bush of masterminding 9-11, but don't anyone dare ask about Obama's birth certificate.

    If this chick is so damn right, then produce it again and be done with it. And why the hell has Obama spent $2 million dollars fighting this issue?

    Hey, if he's born in Hawaii then he's born in Hawaii. Just show the records.

    • you know, if someone thinks Bush masterminded 9/11, they are a conspiracy nut. if you want to say that thinking bush masterminded 9/11 as a general characteristic of that political leaning, you are completely out of scope. political leanings have nothing to do with delusional conspiracies. but of course you have already bought in the whole non-objective commentary regarding the political spectrum. you may wish things were as simple as liberal and conservative, but just because your perception of More..

  • I have to admit though.. Obama sure makes it easy to doubt his legitimacy.. Obama's first act as President was executive order 13489, which banned the release of any of his records without his consent after all.

  • I do not think Obama should have to release his birth certificate to the general public. I do however think it should be presented or made available to key personnel like governors and senators. We now have a statement of not only that it exists but where. All there is left to do is verify it.. I would like to see a law made to allow for confirmation by not only Obama supporters, but the entire political spectrum of key officials. Not just for Obama but for all politicians or even all Americans More..

  • Yet they can't name what hospital he was born at and there are no hospital records? I am older than Obama, the hospital has my records as well as the insurance and billing information, the name of the doctor who delivered me and who was on staff at the time.

  • let's have the original birth certificate they speak of to be carbon dated... I bet they will find it was made with-in the last 5 years. Only someone with something to hide would baulk at it.

  • Well, if the former director of Hawaii's Department of Health says Obama is legit, I guess the whole question can now be put to rest. He was born in Kenya.

    • Unless you or anyone else can find an example where another long form certificate from that state was made available publicly, the demand is unreasonable. If there was any meat to this issue, the mainstream Republicans would have been all over it. It's a honey pot trap for nutcases - including The Donald".

    Is that what Hussein is hiding then if not? Lets say you make $100k a year, and I told you that you would have to spend $20k a year to keep your job because I know something nasty you did in 1980, do you remember it, I do, and it was fucking gross, but I won't tell anybody as long as the money is to me by the 1st of the month!!

    Next question: How is it that the published COLB shows his daddy's race as African? African has never been a race and still isn't. PC liberal forger couldn't bring themselves to put down negro! If it's there, he shouldn't have a problem producing it for vetting, as required.

  • Sorry, but that's the typical answer and does nothing to stir the pot. Coming from another country doesn't mean someone allegiance lies elsewhere ~ if fact, it's generally the opposite. You're certainly not safe relying on our citizens, as a great deal would love nothing more than to see the country smolder.

    Nice dig with the 'smarter than you' comment though. I suppose when you can't make rational arguments, you can always attempt to insult...albeit poorly.
