Obama Takes Jab at 'Birther' Movement on Kenya Trip

If you can't beat members of the "birther" movement, join 'em.
That's the approach President Obama took on Saturday night in Kenya, his father's homeland, when he made a wisecrack about his birthplace — which suspicious critics have harped on for years. While making a toast at a state dinner hosted by President Uhuru, Obama said, "Some of my critics back home might be suggesting I'm here to look for my birth certificate. That's not the case."
In 2011, Obama made his birth certificate public after so-called birthers questioned his eligibility to be president, claiming he was not a U.S. citizen.
