Washington DC, April 29 (THAINDIAN NEWS) Even with the release of President Barack Obama’s birth certificate, California ‘birther’ attorney Orly Taitz is not convinced. She welcomed the release of the document but questioned the timing.

Taitz say the birth certificate proves that Obama is not ‘qualified’ by law to be the President of the United States. She stated that Obama by his parents’ lineage holds allegiance to Kenya, Great Britain and Indonesia. President Obama’s father is a Kenyan and Obama spent part of his childhood in Indonesia.

President Obama was forced to release his birth certificate this week after months of pressure to do so from the so-called “birthers.” The birth certificate showed that Obama was born at the Kapiolani Maternity & Gynecological Hospital in Honolulu, Hawaii. His mother and father were 18 and 25 years respectively when Obama was born on the 4th of August, 1961.

Billionaire Donald Trump became the most vocal of the birthers challenging the President on numerous occasions to show his birth certificate to prove his eligibility as President of the United States.

Skeptically, Taitz said that, “It’s a better document that we had before, but there are still some questions. It’s a little bit strange”.
