In an article about President Barack Obama's upcoming trip to Africa, a Yahoo News reporter somehow referred to Kenya as "the country of his birth."

Apparently Donald Trump is interning at Yahoo News now? Who knew.

The article was quickly revised to refer to Kenya as the president's "ancestral homeland," with a correction at the top and an acknowledgement of the error.

Still ... we're sort of glad we're not Rachel Rose Hartman right now.

Obama was born in Hawaii, a fact that state officials have repeatedly confirmed, though rumors that he was secretly born in Kenya dogged him for years.

The release of Obama's birth certificate in 2011 quieted critics (mostly), and his 2012 reelection would imply that the birther conspiracies have largely been put to rest.

Or just replaced by the far worse AP, IRS, Benghazi and NSA scandals.

Police in Georgia are investigating the toppling of a monument dedicated to one of Michelle Obama's relatives, which was knocked over outside Atlanta.

Monument to Relative

A stone monument to Michelle Obama's great-great-great-grandmother, Melvinia Shields, was pushed over and will need to be inspected for cracks.

Officials say that Shields was born into slavery in the mid-1800s and later settled in Rex, Ga., about 15 miles southeast of downtown Atlanta.

The monument was installed a year ago as a celebration and recognition of Shields' connection to the First Lady and the White House.

It wasn't immediately clear when the monument was toppled, or who did it, or why they did it... but you can draw your own conclusions in that regard.

Actress Shannon Richardson was arrested today in connection to the ricin that was mailed to President Obama today in Texas.

Richardson initially alerted the FBI that she thought her husband of two years may have been responsible for the ricin-laced letter.

But when the FBI went to investigate, they concluded that it may in fact be Shannon who is responsible, and that she simply tried to have her husband take the fall.

Andrea Tantaros is fed up with the Barack Obama administration and anyone that allowed it to rise to power.

On her Fox News radio show Thursday, the host went off on the Justice Department for tapping the phones and hacked the emails of reporter James Rosen.

This confirmation comes amidst an ongoing scandal in which the same department also obtained the phone records of several Associated Press members.

"This is what's happening to our press," Tantaros said on air. "This is Obama's America. It's like the Soviet Union. He said he would change the country. He said it ... and a lot of people voted for him. And if you see any of those people today, do me a favor and punch them in the face."

Listen to Tantaros' diatribe below:

After a speech that saw a surprised President Obama heckled by an anti-war, anti-drone, and anti-Gitmo activist, the Internet was the big winner.

As Code Pink co-founder Medea Benjamin interrupted and harassed the POTUS during his speech on Thursday, Obama repeatedly told her:

"Let me address it!"

She was eventually removed from the room, and Obama went off-script to acknowledge her concerns and even urged people to "cut her some slack."

And that was about it, which means we can move on and laugh at the obligatory auto-tuned musical version of events that someone made online. Enjoy!

President Barack Obama was heckled during a speech at the National Defense University in Washington by Medea Benjamin, an anti-war activist.

The two videos below show the news feed of Obama being heckled repeatedly, and the perspective of the heckler being restrained by security:

Obama was defending the use of drones ("These strikes have saved lives") and again discussing his desire to shut down Cuba's Guantanamo Bay.

"Can you tell the Muslim people their lives are as precious as our lives?" Medea, co-founder of the group Code Pink, can be heard yelling.

Obama seemed agitated, and repeatedly asked her to allow him to finish his sentence and address her concerns, but did allow Benjamin to speak:

President Barack Obama's historic embrace of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) rights has been widely praised ... and widely criticized.

It didn't hurt him with the public enough to sway the 2012 election results, but his support for gay causes lit a fire under many vocal opponents.

Which brings us to conservative pundit "Coach" Dave Daubenmire ... who is calling on Obama to come out of the closet and admit he's gay already.

In a bizarre online rant, Dave emphasizes, "How about he come out and admit he's the first openly gay president or, better yet, openly bisexual president?"

He cites Obama's praise for Jason Collins and notes that the President's "face seems to really light up when he begins to talk about the gay agenda."
