Obama Jokes He Was Born In Kenya


On the opening day of his foundation’s summit in Chicago, former president Barack Obama added managed to troll the current president without mentioning him by name.

“The reason I’m so excited to see you all here today in part is because this is where I started,” Obama said Tuesday. “This isn’t where I was born. I was born in Kenya (pause for laughs). That’s a joke.”

The former commander (and comedian) in chief is no stranger to poking fun at the “birther” conspiracies that claimed that he wasn’t born in Hawaii but in Kenya (where his father is from) and was therefore ineligible for the Oval Office.

Most famously, Obama roasted the rumors at the 2011 White House Correspondents’ Association dinner while Donald Trump, then the leading voice in the birther “movement,” sat in the audience. Afterward, some theorized that the punchlines thrown at Trump fueled his eventual run for president.

Why has the WHITE Mayor not done anything to stem the tide of violence? Are the black voters of South Chicago that stupid? The people living in Kenya are treated better than the black folks living in Engelwood. Obama should be shunned in Chicago. He is no friend of the lower income black folks.
