Yahoo News Calls Kenya "Country of Obama's Birth"

by at . Comments

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.
