MSNBC's OOPS: President Obama is from Africa



President Obama is hosting African leaders for a summit on the continent's issues the continent's leaders, an event made all the more notable because the president himself is from Africa, according to MSNBC
correspondent Chris Jansing.

Appearing on The Reid Report Tuesday, Jansing said the trip would factor into Obama's legacy because of "the fact that he's from Kenya, and the fact that when he was elected there were expectations on the African continent that he would do great things for them."

To be fair, Jansing corrected her flub a little later, saying she meant Obama's father is from Kenya.
