Obama: ‘I’m the first Kenyan-American to be president of the United States’

President Obama might be visiting Kenya, but his mind is stuck on baiting critics back home.

A crack Sunday in Nairobi is a case in point: It seemed aimed more at the so-called birthers — Americans who claim he was born in Kenya rather than Hawaii — than at his Kenyan audience.

“I am proud to be the first American president to come to Kenya,” Obama told a crowd Sunday. “And of course I’m the first Kenyan-American to be president of the United States.”

He made a similar reference Saturday evening, when he cracked a joke at a state dinner that he didn’t go to Kenya to search for his birth certificate.
