Pat Boone has revived the birther debate surrounding the president, claiming that Obama’s birth certificate that was released earlier this year is a fake.
“[Obama] is spending millions of dollars so that we do not have his records,” the 1950s entertainment icon told The San Francisco Chronicle.
“Why else would he be hiding all his records. And experts have already looked at and been able to verify that this long form document is a fraud. It was photoshopped.”
After incessant prodding from skeptics, including Donald Trump, Obama released his birth certificate in April.
Although the release did satiate some questions, many conservatives, especially Tea Party members, attributed the document as being a false documentation, lacking the proper layers of a true birth certificate.
The debate has become so strong that the Birthers Group has been established, which, according to their official website, is “dedicated to insuring that the president and Commander in Chief is a natural born citizen of the United States.”
Boone, a heartthrob gospel singer of the 1950’s, expressed disgust that the media has ignored such obvious deception. Boone, now 76, is a proud Tea Party member and Birthers.
Boone claimed that when visiting Kenya last month, Kenyans agreed that Obama was born there. Boone also believes that because Obama supposedly read the Qur’an when he was younger, those values are imbedded in his thought process.
“He hasn’t celebrated any Christian holidays in the White House, but he does Ramadan,” argued Boone.
He has also published his political opinion in “The Mosque at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue,” which further details his belief that Obama is a Muslim.
Currently residing in Beverly Hills, Boone has led the Beverly Hills Tea Party Rally and has joined former Arkansas governor Mike Huckabee in leading an evangelical tour through Israel.
He has openly stated that he thinks Michele Bachmann is far more capable of being president than Obama.
