Red Alert Politics reported:

Things got pretty awkward for news website, Yahoo! News, after an article published by a White House reporter Friday called Kenya President Obama’s ‘country of birth.’

The article, written by Rachel Rose Hartman, spoke of the Obama family’s upcoming visit to Africa, which is expected to take place on June 26th to July 3rd. Hartman mentioned that the President will not be stopping in his country of birth which — apparently to the writer — is Kenya.

Whether it was a freudian slip or a careless mistake on behalf of Hartman, the blunder caused quite a stir, and many took to Twitter to voice their disdain.
