NBC's Jansing on Obama at Africa Summit: Helps that 'He's from Kenya'

On Tuesday, NBC News’ Chris Jansing made an appearance from the White House on MSNBC’s “The Reid Report.” During that appearance, she evaluated President Barack Obama as this week’s U.S.-Africa Leaders summit was underway in Washington, D.C.

However, Jansing made one small error in her analysis by misidentifying Obama’s orgins.

“Yeah, the fact that he’s from Kenya and the fact that when he was elected there were expectations from the African continent that he would do great things for them,” Jansing said.

Jansing 10 minutes later reappeared in on that broadcast to correct herself and say Obama’s father was from Kenya.
