A video has been posted online in which Michelle Obama, at a 2007 fundraiser, describes her husband as “Kenyan.”
The statement from the now-first lady adds weight to another video revealed earlier in which she describe Kenya as Barack Obama’s “home country.”
“Is Michelle Obama a Birther?” wrote a commentator at American Thinker. “The question has to be asked, now that a second YouTube video has surfaced in which Michelle Obama refers to her husband as a Kenyan.”
Michelle Obama was boasting about crowds wanting to see her husband that couldn’t fit in the venue and were lined up outside.
At about two minutes into the video, she says, “What it reminded me of was our trip to Africa, two years ago, and the level of excitement that we felt in that country – the hope that people saw just in the sheer presence of somebody like Barack Obama – a Kenyan, a black man, a man of great statesmanship who they believe could change the fate of the world.”
The video apparently was from a Tampa, Fla., fundraiser in December 2007.
