(MEDIAITE) — President Obama spent years dealing with “Birthers” like Donald Trump, and now, it seems, he has a new set of conspiracists to deal with: “Skeeters” who are convinced that the President was lying when he told The New Republic editors Chris Hughes and Franklin Foer, when asked, if he had ever shot a gun, “Yes, in fact, up at Camp David, we do skeet shooting all the time.”

Foer followed up by asking, “The whole family?”

The President replied, “Not the girls, but oftentimes guests of mine go up there. And I have a profound respect for the traditions of hunting that trace back in this country for generations. And I think those who dismiss that out of hand make a big mistake.”
