HOPING to further quash conspiracy theories, US President Barack Obama announced at the weekend that he would show his official birth video, in front of an audience of 2500 journalists, celebrities and hangers-on at the Washington Hilton.

Then a clip of The Lion King played on giant screens, showing the young cub Simba being anointed. The crowd roared. The squirmy issues of American society are always played for laughs at the White House Correspondents’ Association dinner.

”I want to make this clear to the Fox News table: That was a joke,” said the tuxedo-clad Mr Obama at the head table. ”That was not my real birth video. That was a children’s cartoon. Call Disney if you don’t believe me. They have the original long-form version.”

He said Donald Trump could now focus on the serious issues, from whether the moon landing actually happened to ”where are Biggie and Tupac?”.

On Mr Trump’s decision to fire actor Gary Busey instead of rock singer Meat Loaf from his TV show earlier this month, Mr Obama quipped: ”These are the types of decisions that would keep me up at night. Well handled, sir.”
