For the second time in as many days, a prominent Democratic figure referred to the continent of Africa as a single country.
After Vice President Joe Biden encouraged “the nation of Africa” to “join the ranks of the world’s most prosperous nations” during his remarks at the United States-Africa Leaders Summit on Tuesday, Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi tweeted out her excitement to be part of the festivities.
Many on Twitter were quick to inform the minority leader that Africa is not a country, but a continent. She tweeted out another message, referencing a totally different subject, while still keeping up the erroneous message. She later deleted the original tweet.
