Mike Huckabee Falsely Asserts President Obama Grew Up In Kenya
On Steve Malzberg’s radio show on WOR, presidential hopeful, former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee made the claim that President Obama grew up in Kenya.
“one thing that I do know is his having grown up in Kenya, his view of the Brits, for example, very different than the average American … his perspective as growing up in Kenya with a Kenyan father and grandfather, their view of the Mau Mau Revolution in Kenya is very different than ours because he probably grew up hearing that the British are a bunch of imperialists who persecuted his grandfather.”
Huckabee does believe the president was born in the United States, if only because the Clintons would have already used it against him if he were born in Kenya.
“The only reason I’m not as confident that there’s something about the birth certificate, Steve, is because I know the Clintons [inaudible] and believe me, they have lots of investigators out on him, and I’m convinced if there was anything that they could have found on that, they would have found it, and I promise they would have used it.”
Obama didn’t visit Kenya until he was in his 20’s, in the late 1980’s.Click here for reuse options!
