Time reported that the state would like to kiss up to Obama even more by erecting a statue of him there. The Senate Judiciary Committee voted unanimously in favor of the resolution, which asks the Hawaii State Foundation on Culture and the Arts to commission the statue.
Obama was reportedly born in Honolulu in 1961 and he attended the Punahou School on the island. He vacationed in the state with his family frequently during his presidency.
The resolution also calls for the formation of an art advisory committee that would select a location for the statue, review design proposals and select an artist.
Despite the fact that many feel that Obama was one of the worst presidents our country had ever seen, the resolution was annoyingly complimentary to him, claiming that the U.S. thrived during his time in office.
This comes after former Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio just reemerged to say that while he’s putting his Obama birther claims on the back burner, he will bring them up more if he gets elected to Senate because “100 percent we proved” that the former president’s birth certificate is “a fake document.”
While speaking at the Western Conservative Conference in Phoenix, Arpaio discussed his and Trump’s shared interest in cracking down on immigration and in investigating Obama’s birth certificate.
“I talked about another thing that made a little news,” Arpaio said. “I don’t talk about it anymore—until I become the U.S. senator…but that’s something to do with a document. If I ask you guys—I’m a nothing now, but if I was still the sheriff I could ask for your birth certificate.”
“So I’m kind of dropping that right now,” he said, “but I’m going to tell you something: 100 percent we proved that’s a fake document. One hundred.”
