President Obama’s aunt Zeituni Onyango was living in Kenya in 1961 and remembers being shown the letter from Barack Obama Sr. to her mother announcing the birth of a son Barack Obama III in Hawaii.
Ms. Onyango is now hurt and angry over recent statements by Donald Trump casting doubts about Obama’s origins that she characterizes as:
A naked lie…in the name of the Lord
This and more from an exclusive video interview on WHDH TV.
A large part of the hot air under the birther movement comes from an edited phone conversation between Onyango’s stepmother Sarah Obama and street preacher Ron McRae that appears to have her saying that she was present when President Obama was born, although in the full version it is clear she is saying exactly the opposite, that the President was born in Hawaii.
Obama family members have said in numerous interviews that President Obama was in Kenya for the first time as an adult. This is even reported by Jerome Corsi in his book, The Obama Nation (p 24-25).
The story of the letter from Hawaii announcing Obama’s birth was originally reported by the Chicago Tribune in March of 2007.
