If you thought the birthers were bad, wait till you see the 2nd generation birthers — the ones who think President Obama’s daughters…well, it’s not clear what they think about them, only that they are demanding to see birth certificates and baby pictures. Because they apparently can’t use Google very well.
I got an email this morning from FOTM reader Dave McMullen, asking why there aren’t baby pictures of Obama’s two daughters, Malia and Sasha.
Wikipedia says “Barack and Michelle Obama have two daughters: Malia Ann, born on July 4, 1998, and Natasha (known as Sasha), born on June 10, 2001.“
So I did a Google Image search for Obama’s daughters. I couldn’t find any baby pics of Malia or Sasha; neither could Dave.
The youngest-looking pic of the girls I found (see below) was in an article extolling Michelle Obama, dated August 20, 2007, on the website Afrobella. The pic is undated. If we go by the date of the Afrobella article, Malia would be 9 years old and Sasha would be 6 years old.
Our intrepid researcher then went to Ancestry.com and found no birth records for either daughter and behold, a vague conspiracy theory was born. Then some of his readers found pictures of the girls as babies and, of course, they were declared to be photoshopped fakes. I bet George Soros is behind the whole thing. And Saul Alinsky too. And they would have gotten away with it if it weren’t for those pesky wingnuts.
