FOX NEWS ANCHOR Heather Childers wants to know whether her Twitter followers believe US President Barack Obama threatened to kill Chelsea Clinton in order to cover up his illegitimate birth certificate…

Childers, who co-hosts Fox & Friends First and America’s News Headquarters, tweeted this afternoon: “Thoughts? Did Obama Campaign Threaten Chelsea Clinton’s Life 2 Keep Parents Silent?” The tweet links to a post from the fringe right-wing conspiracy blog Godfather Politics.

The post claims that Obama’s 2008 campaign threatened people to keep the candidate’s birth records a secret, and suggests that Obama associates were involved in the murder of Arkansas Democratic Party chair Bill Gwatney, and told President Bill Clinton “that his daughter Chelsea would be next if he opened his mouth.”

“From that point on, the Clinton’s [sic] remained silent about Obama’s birth certificate or lack thereof,” the post said.

The tweet sparked quite a bit of internet outrage toward Childers, but the Fox anchor kept her cool, encouraging fellowers to “participate” in the debate but refrain from namecalling. ”Conversation is good,” she tweeted several times.
