In an interview with the San Francisco Chronicle (video below), crooner Pat Boone claimed that President Obama's birth certificate was a fraud and said that Obama was born in Kenya. He also stated that the media had ignored this issue, which has been reported on since 2008.
Boone said: “I was in Kenya about a year and a half ago and everybody there says, ‘You know he was born here.' Why else would he be hiding all his records? He’s spending millions of dollars so we do not have his records. And experts have already looked at and been able to verify that this long form document is a fraud. It was photoshopped.”
Popular VideoPeople were so furious about this Pepsi ad that Pepsi pulled it after just one day. Watch it here and decide if it's offensive:
“But the media ignores it,” Boone exclaimed. “A total fraud. A photoshopped fraud.”
Boone also claimed Obama doesn't celebrate Christmas: “Growing up in Indonesia, he used to read the Koran in Arabic. So that was instilled in him as a young boy…he hasn’t celebrated any Christian holidays in the White House, but he does Ramadan.”
President Obama released his short-form birth certificate in 2008 and his long-form birth certificate back in April of this year. However, with Boone’s new comments, the birther movement does not appear to be going away any time soon.
