Obama’s Nat’l Security Advisor So Incompetent She is Fooled By Internet Hoax About Africa

Barack Obama’s incompetent top expert on Africa is so ill-informed about the continent that she was fooled by a fake Internet hoax about the death of a famous Nigerian writer.

Obama’s National Security Advisor, Susan Rice, was for years the State Department’s top expert on Africa. But she has proven herself so uninformed about the very place she is supposed to be an expert on that she made herself look stupid on Twitter this week.

Obama’s National Security Advisor, Susan Rice, fell for a social media hoax on Monday, posting that a famous Nigerian writer had died that day. But in fact, the author died two years ago.

On Monday morning, Rice tweeted her condolences to the Nigerian people for the death of Chinua Achebe, who authored the famed Nigerian classics “Things Fall Apart” and “Arrow of God.”

“A giant of African lit., he brought the Continent–and Nigeria, in particular–2 the world. His works left lasting impression on me & my gen.,” Rice tweeted.

Obama’s security adviser then added, “Despite the promise of the future, today is a somber day in Nigeria, as Chinua Achebe was laid to rest in his native village.”

The only problem is that Achebe died back in 2013.

Complete incompetence.
