How I Faked Obama's Kenyan Birth
Oct 31 2012
I am Nimrod Kamer, aka Peter Rehnquist, the creator of the "real" Obama Kenya Birth 2012 film. I just wanted to state, for the record, that I intentionally inserted very obvious clues into the video to ensure that it could easily be proven fraudulent: the incorrect Kenyan flag, claiming the film was shot on 8mm film when I really used a cheap iPad filter app, and casting a baby who was obviously too big (to fail) and had a few teeth. So now I am happy to present to you the behind-the-scenes making-of footage of the birthing-video hoax.
In part 2, set to air tomorrow, we interview a 2012 presidential nominee who believed the footage to be authentic and we have a close encounter with Donald Trump's trusted advisor Michael Cohen.
