Reverend Graham Buys Into The Birther Lie On Easter Sunday

On Easter Sunday, a day when Christians from all denominations come together to celebrate the day Jesus rose from the dead, Reverend Franklin Graham was on television continuing to foster a lie that has been debunked by numerous reputable news organizations – and that is that President Obama has somehow deceived the American people by not supplying his birth certificate.

“He can solve this whole birth certificate issue pretty quickly. I was born in a hospital in Asheville, North Carolina. And I know that my records are there, you can probably go and find out what room my mother was in when I was born. I don’t know why he can’t produce that. It’s an issue it looks like he can answer pretty quickly.”

But what would we expect on our Easter Sunday? Graham is a Republican who praise the likes of “The Donald” and claims that “the more you listen to him, the more you say to yourself, ‘you know maybe the guy’s right’, and Sarah Palin, his recent travel partner to Haiti is too.

What’s shocking is the silence of the host, Christiane Amanpour. Amanpour, the host of ABC’s This Week with Christiane Amanpour has gained the reputation of a reporter who reports the facts. Why she allowed this baseless accusation to go unchallenged on her show is questionable.

I'm just tired of the lies and nonsense coming from the GOP, so this is my little contribution to combat the nonsense!

    I am torn between the GOP and teaparty talking about this so much. Part of me is just sick of hearing about it and the part of me is just ready to hand them more shovels and let them continue digging themselves into the hole they are digging themselves into….

    Yes, I was ready for Christiane to come back at him but, she didn’t. At least not on the birther issue.

    I am ready to see the AC360 episode on Monday night and see what Anderson and his crew have come up with to “resolve” this.

    But I have said over and over, if there was a video of Barrack Obama’s mother giving birth in Hawaii with state officials surrounding her and the daily newspapers taking pictures, confirming the date and place and God himself delivered that video and a confirmed, notarized original birth certificate into the hands of whoever their party deems worthy of accepting this material (lord knows that changes all the time), it still wouldn’t resolve this issue. Obama would still be unacceptable to them…

    He can’t wash himself into worthiness. They will find another reason to “trump” up some issue.
