Oops! MSNBC reporter has Obama birther moment that won’t sit well with the boss

An unintended segue by a MSNBC host Joy Reid gave its unsophisticated White House reporter a golden opportunity to jump straight into the mud.

On Tuesday’s “Reid Report,” the host introduced her news segment on President Barack Obama’s African Summit by saying, “The White House is clearly, I would assume, hoping this will be a part of the president’s legacy, given his background.”

Reporter Chris Jansing didn’t miss a beat by replying, “Yeah, 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. This is a concerted effort by this administration to get American companies to invest.”

A smug Joy Reid never rectified the slip-up and it took quite a few long minutes before Jansing was able to emerge from the weeds and correct herself, saying, “Yeah, and, and just obviously to clarify, I misspoke at the top – before. It is obviously the president’s father who is from Kenya.”

Jansing also failed to inform viewers that the true motive behind this conference with 45 different African nations was that the United States is lagging light years behind China in establishing business relationships with them, and decades behind the Europeans.

Rather than explain that investments are made with individual governments, ministries and corporations, Jansing repeated herself and said “…there has been a great expectation that great things could happen with this president and the African continent.”

But six years into Obama’s tenure, nothing great or even close to great has emerged from his policies in Africa, or his foreign policies anywhere else for that matter.
