At the annual White House Correspondents’ Dinner Saturday evening, President Obama made a remark towards Fox News and ‘birthers,’ a term which refers to conspiracy theorists (and very rich orange men) who believe that Obama was born in Kenya or Indonesia, as opposed to Hawaii.
Obama: “Let’s face it Fox, you’ll miss me when I’m gone. It’ll be harder to convince the American people that Hillary was born in Kenya.”

The message to the fringe conspiracy theorists shows a less serious side of Obama, who was met with challenges to prove he was born in the United States from people like Donald Trump, even though he has released both the short-form and long-form versions of his birth certificate.
Many critics of the birther movement have deemed its followers as racist due to a reluctance to accept Obama as being the first African-American president of the United States.
