President Obama, his 2012 re-election campaign reminds us, was made in the U.S.A.
Obama for America is now selling coffee mugs ($20) or T-shirts ($25) emblazoned with the president's certificate of live birth. It appears to be the long-form version, bearing the signatures of both Obama's mother and a physician, which the White House dug out of Hawaii's records just in time to embarrass Donald Trump, birther extraordinaire. Obama released his long-form birth certificate on April 27, roughly half an hour before Trump spoke to reporters at a press conference in New Hampshire, where he had traveled to explore the possibility of a presidential bid.
If you're wondering what to get Donald Trump for Christmas, the mug isn't a bad option.
