The Distraction of Birtherism

Barack Obama, 44th President of the United States, was born in Hawaii. But that doesn't mean he doesn't have something to hide. Obama's original birth certificate if ever published, will no doubt reveal something embarrassing about him. His college papers and documents from his time at Columbia University would likewise reveal damaging information. Otherwise, he and his handlers wouldn't have gone to so much trouble to conceal it. It is fair to ask to see this information to get more sense of his character. Unfortunately, all such inquiries are labeled birtherism and dismissed. Trump, whom I loathe for his use of eminent domain in an attempt to evict an elderly widow to build a casino, could have done us a favor by making clear that he doesn't doubt Obama's citizenship, but just wants Obama to reveal details of his life. Sadly, he has allowed this all to become a distraction, when it is clear that the President has much to hide in his past. I think that the details of the President's record should be revealed.
