President Obama’s mother’s name was Stanley?

blog by S.J. Velasquez  • 

After much pressure and brewing conspiracy theories over President Barack Obama’s birthplace, the White House released a long-form birth certificate that confirms the president was born in Hawaii.

Also, his mother’s name was Stanley.

I KNOW—HOW DID WE MISS THAT?

Stanley Ann Dunham, just 18 years old, gave birth to Barack Hussein Obama on Aug. 4, 1961. According to Time, she was named Stanley because her father always wanted a boy, but she began using Ann—her middle name—in high school.
