Former President Bill Clinton is taking the so-called â€œbirthersâ€ to task for ignoring evidence that President Barack Obama was born in the United States.
Clinton made the comments during a commencement address at Yale University on Sunday as part of a critique of American media consumption habits.
â€œThe only place where weâ€™re bigoted now is we only want to be around people who agree with us,â€ Clinton said. â€œIn our media habits, we go to the television shows, we go to the radio talk shows we go to the blog sites that agree with us. And it can have very bizarre consequences.â€
The former president pointed to the â€œbirthersâ€ an example of one of those â€œbizarre consequences.â€
â€œHawaii, the state where President Obama was born, has done everything they can to debunk this myth that he wasnâ€™t born in America,â€ Clinton said. â€œTheyâ€™ve done everything but blow up his birth certificate, put it in neon lights and hang it on the dome in the Capitol.â€
â€œBut 45 percent of registered Republicans still believe that he is serving unconstitutionally,â€ Clinton insisted, though he did not identify the poll.
â€œWhy?â€ he asked. â€œBecause theyâ€™ve been told that by the only place they go to get information.â€
Responding to rumors during the presidential campaign about Obamaâ€™s place of birth, Hawaii state officials posted his birth certificate online.
