Ever since Donald Trump’s journey down birther lane with his outright questioning of President Obama’s constitutional ability to sit in the Oval Office, the media has made it a point of asking every single Republican candidate about Obama’s birth certificate. Most, if not all of them attempt to skirt the issue saying it is over and they are satisfied with President Obama’s certificate of live birth even though it is not an official long-form birth certificate.


The latest victim in this line is Minnesota Representative Michele Bachmann at the hands of George Stephanopoulos:

Bachman’s answer comes despite her earlier willingness to offer up her birth certificate as a way to call out all candidates and bring the issue on the table.

This issue surely is going to be a theme throughout the campaign so long as Donald Trump continues taking questions on it from the media.
