Comments follow statements by Donald Trump questioning legitimacy of president's birth record
The Hawaiian state health official who personally reviewed Barack Obama's original birth certificate has affirmed again that the document is "real" and denounced "conspiracy theorists" in the so-called "birther" movement for continuing to spread bogus claims about the issue.

"Its kind of ludicrous at this point," Dr. Chiyome Fukino, the former director of Hawaii's Department of Health, said in a rare telephone interview with NBC.
Fukino, sounding both exasperated and amused, spoke to a reporter in the aftermath of Donald Trump's statements on the NBC Today show last week questioning whether Obama has a legitimate birth certificate.
Trump, who says he is considering a run for president, repeated his claims on CNN's "State of the Union" Sunday, saying that "nobody has any information" about the president's birth and that "if he wasn't born in this country, he shouldn't be president of the United States."

Prove it’s “ludicrous”
Produce a birth certificate
sooooo just pop out the original and prove em all wrong!
Every American has had to produce a real BC....so THIS really could get legs...
“”Its kind of ludicrous at this point,””
In other words: Obama is president now so just shut up.
There is no time like now to prove everyone wrong and show the birth certificate.
HI liars ping.................
Trump is correct in saying that while Obama may have been born in Hawaii, it is clear his is going to lot of effort and expense (of our money) to hide something possibly more sinister.
Why spend 2 Million if producing a simple long form birth certificate?
Am I reading this correctly? Is she saying that if Obama himself wanted a copy of his birth certificate he could only get a copy of the Certificate of Live Birth?
Party affiliation not mentioned, so obviously not a Republican.
Obviously a Democratic Party leftist.
I guess the new forgery has been finished and is ready for public consumption. Oh-oh!
“Its kind of ludicrous at this point,” Dr. Chiyome Fukino>>>>>>
No one is dumb enough to believe this Democrat hack.
Furthermore, Trump isn't going to keep picking at this unless he has the goods on Obama. It appears that the WH doesn't know what Trump has found out.
As always, there is much more to this than meets the eye.
SHUT THE BIRTHERS UP! I DARE YOU TO SIMPLY SHOW IT!
There is a “there” here. It’s fun watching all the libs squirm and spin. Wonder why they don’t just produce it?
Because they know it will collapse their house of cards.
It just won’t go away.
no the idiot from the AG ‘s office Joshua Wisch is saying that and it is not correct...
But Wisch, the spokesman for the attorney general’s office, said state law does not in fact permit the release of “vital records,” including an original “record of live birth” even to the individual whose birth it records.
“It’s a Department of Health record and it can’t be released to anybody,” he said. Nor do state laws have any provision that authorizes such records to be photocopied, Wisch said. If Obama wanted to personally visit the state health department, he would be permitted to inspect his birth record, Wisch said.
But if he or anybody else wanted a copy of their birth records, they would be told to fill out the appropriate state form and receive back the same computer generated “certification of live birth” form that everybody else gets which is exactly what Obama did four years ago.
Anyone wonder what the RATs would do or say if there was a national donation drive to hire expert private detectives to work this case on behalf of We The People of the USA? Or, is Donald Trump doing that for us? Anyone know for sure?
