Obama Cracks A Birther Joke [VIDEO]

It’s that birther thing again.

President Barack Obama was at an Orlando sports bar, snapping a University of Florida Gators’ sign, sipping a pint and working a crowd when he walked up to a table with five children.

One adult points to one of the boys, 7-year-old Andre Wupperman of Orlando, and informs the president that the boy was born in Hawaii, the president’s native state.

 

The president, delighted, greeted the boy with a “shaka” sign, the pinky and thumb gesture typical of Hawaiian culture. The boy gestured back.

“You were born in Hawaii?” the president said. Then he added teasingly: “You have a birth certificate?”

The patrons at Gator’s Dockside, clearly aware of the discredited claims that Obama was not born in the United States, broke up laughing.
