Obama’s birth certificate: What will Birthers do now?

d61e1549a943c07ed3546b46d597dd22

Now that President Obama has seemingly put the issue of his birth to rest by releasing his original birth certificate, what controversy will the Birthers gin up next? 

Metro has some ideas! Try to separate the conspiracies we made up from the real ones Birthers have been spouting today:

1. Barack Obama’s Harvard law school tuition was paid for by a black Muslim nationalist!

2. Barack Obama has not paid back his federal student loans, thus making him ineligible to hold federal office!

3. Barack Obama’s grades weren’t good enough to get into Columbia!

4. Even if Barack Obama was born in America, he’s not the "natural-born citizen" that the Constitution requires because his father was a British subject, thus making him a dual-citizen, whom the Founders didn’t intend to be allowed to hold office!

5. Barack Obama was born to an interracial couple in 1961. Since interracial marriage wasn’t struck down by the Supreme Court until 1967, Barack Obama is a bastard, and thus ineligible to hold office!

(Answers: 1: real conspiracy theory, 2: fake, 3: real, 4: real, 5: fake)
