President Obama's birth certificate {VIDEO+PICS} Obama and Kenyan President clash over gay rights in Africa

President Obama Jokes About Jay-Z & Beyonce Cuban Controversy [VIDEO] Made grand entrance to DJ Khaled’s smash hit “All I Do Is Win.”

Certificate: Obama's birth certificate (above), which was publicly released in 2011, lists the 53-year-old's place of birth Honolulu, Hawaii

  • President Barack Obama spoke at press conference outside the State House in Nairobi, Kenya, on Saturday night
  • He charmed the nation's leaders by fondly reflecting on his family's ties to Kenya and even cracking 'birther' joke 
  • But he also struck a nerve - by comparing Kenya's discrimination of gays to treating people differently due to race
  • Said: 'As an African-American in the US I am painfully aware of what happens when people are treated differently'
  • In response, Kenyan President Uhuru Kenyatta, standing beside Obama, said gay rights are 'non-issue' in Kenya
  • Kenyatta said that while the U.S. and Kenya agree on a lot, there are some things cultures/societies don't accept
  • Later on, Obama made wisecrack about his birthplace of Hawaii - which American critics have long questioned 
  • 'Some of my critics back home might be suggesting I'm back here to look for my birth certificate,' Obama joked
  • Obama's visit to Kenya - his late father's homeland and home to some relatives - is his first one as US president  

With a warm smile, fond reflections on his family's ties to Kenya and even a 'birther' joke, he charmed the African nation's leaders on Saturday night.

But at one point, President Barack Obama struck a nerve.

Speaking at a press conference outside Nairobi's State House, Obama condemned Kenya for its treatment of homosexuals, comparing discriminating against gays to treating people differently due to race and saying that 'law-abiding' citizens should not be punished for loving a particular person.

'As an African-American in the United States I am painfully aware of what happens when people are treated differently,' he said. 'When you start treating people differently, not because of any harm they are doing, but because they are different, that's the path whereby freedoms begin to erode.

'[If] somebody is a law-abiding citizen... the idea they are going to be treated differently or abused because of who they love is wrong. Full stop.'

In response, Kenyan President Uhuru Kenyatta, who was standing on a stage alongside Obama, declared that gay rights are a 'non-issue' in Kenya.

Speaking in front of Obama, Kenya's Deputy President William Ruto, and millions of people globally, Kenyatta said that while the U.S. and Kenya agree on a lot, there are some things that cultures or societies just don't accept - and it is difficult to impose beliefs on people that they will not welcome,.

He added that after Kenya deals with other, more pressing issues such as terrorism, it can begin to look at new issues. 

But he said that the moment, gay rights is not at the forefront for the country.

'The fact of the matter is Kenya and the U.S. share so many values: common love for democracy, entrepreneurship, value for families - these are some things that we share,' Kenyatta said. 'But there are some things that we must admit we don't share. Our culture, our societies don't accept.'

He added: 'This is why I repeatedly say for Kenyans today (gay rights) is generally a non-issue. We want to focus on other areas.'

Kenyatta's comments sparked a small amount of applause from the crowd, who were apparently silent during Obama's remarks about gay rights.

The comments made by Obama - who says he is 'unequivocal' on the issue of gay rights - exposed the divide on gay rights between Western states and religiously conservative Africa, where many states ban gay relations. Gay sex is a crime in Kenya, punishable by up to 14 years in prison.

The president, who embraced gay marriage in 2012 during his re-election campaign, hailed last month's U.S. Supreme Court decision to allow same-sex marriage in the United States. He says he has been consistent in pressing the controversial issue when he meets with African leaders. 

Charming Kenya: With fond reflections on his family's ties to Kenya and even a 'birther' joke, Obama charmed the African nation's leaders on Saturday. Later in the night, the president couldn't resist making a joke about his birthplace - which critics have long questioned

President Obama has 99 problems and now Jay-Z is one of them.

During his well received annual White House Correspondents’ Dinner on Saturday, the President makes fun of Jay-Z and Beyonce’s controversial trip to communist Caribbean island.

President Obama also made a grand entrance to DJ Khaled’s smash hit single “All I Do Is Win.”

“How do you like my new entrance music?” Obama jokingly asked. “Rush Limbaugh warned you about this. Second term, baby. We’re changing things around a little bit.”

“Actually, my advisors were a little worried about the new Rap entrance music. The are a little more traditional,” he added.

If you look closely at the BC you can tell it was contrived as there are numbers and letters in the background of it proving it was copied and or photo shopped to appear real. Furthermore, how in the fck does Obama chastise the leader of another country about gay rights when he's doing nothing about Black rights/killings by police in the USA? The Kenyan President should have told Obama to worry about Black lives/murders by police in the USA rather then trying to chastise him about gays in Kenya per his white masters agenda

He goes to a African country that will not except the abomination and plead for their right. What happened to all of the black men and women being murdered by police. Some of us are sooooooo slow. Wait until half of u find out you've been tricked again

Obama comparing Kenya's discrimination of gays to treating people differently due to race is ridiculous. People in general get treated differently every single day what the hell does being gay have to do with anything why would they put them on a higher pedastol  than anyone who isn't living their lifestyle. He mixing lies with truth so he can sway that country to accept this filth as a normal way of life but if they are smart they will stick to their guns, cause at this point in time God is at his tipping point.

I already showed in a seminar that this "Birth Certificate" is a FAKE...!

Since when has Obama Become the OFFICIAL MASCOT of the world for Gay Rights???? This guy needs to keep out of other nations who stand by their values. Yes we do need to pray for him…  but we must also stand up for what is moral… However, with that said, we must Love everyone. Just because we may not agree, promote and fight for gay rights it doesn't mean that we should hate anyone… Love is the most powerful way to transform people with the love of God!!!  

Comment by Rayvon on July 26, 2015 at 6:46pm
Stop promoting this homosexual madness! Focus more on world starvation or or something. True you are a half black president but you play by the same rules. Your no different then your fellow masons who destroyed this country so technically f*** you.

IMO, President Barack Obama is not only a class act he's an intelligent, handsome and very sexy President.  I love my President the First Lady Michelle and their beautiful girls....May God forever shower this awesome family with many Blessings.

My favorite US president... Barack Obama!!!  The man knows how to beat the haters to the punch; roast yourself!!! lol...  I wonder how much of his own stuff he writes.  Regardless, his delivery is what makes it hilarious.
