Oops… Indian Businessman Introduces Obama as "A Fellow Kenyan"

An Indian official introduced President Obama today as “a fellow Kenyan” today in Mumbai.
Jake Tapper reported:

There was an odd little moment with Spice Jet founder Bhupendra Kansagra when President Obama spoke to CEOs Saturday in Mumbai.

MR. KANSAGRA: Thank you. Welcome, Mr. President, to India. As a fellow Kenyan, I’m very proud to see that you have made —

THE PRESIDENT: Made something of myself. (Laughter.)

MR. KANSAGRA: — India as the focus of your drive for exports out of the U.S.

Obviously the president is not a Kenyan. One supposes Mr. Kansagra meant “of Kenyan ancestry” or something.

For those informed progressives out there, that’s Kenyan not Keynesian.
