Obama Pushes Ben Rhodes as African Writer

Finally. Affirmative action for white lefties.

Barack Obama updated his reading list for his majesty’s upcoming visit to Africa. “Over the years since, I’ve often drawn inspiration from Africa’s extraordinary literary tradition,” he wrote.

“As I prepare for this trip, I wanted to share a list of books that I’d recommend for summer reading, including some from a number of Africa’s best writers and thinkers – each of whom illuminate our world in powerful and unique ways.”

The list of African  writers concludes with a very pale Obama whisperer.

“The World As It Is by Ben Rhodes – It’s true, Ben does not have African blood running through his veins. But few others so closely see the world through my eyes like he can. Ben’s one of the few who’ve been with me since that first presidential campaign. His memoir is one of the smartest reflections I’ve seen as to how we approached foreign policy, and one of the most compelling stories I’ve seen about what it’s actually like to serve the American people for eight years in the White House.”

Ben doesn’t? But what about Lucy?

It is nice of Barry to take a break from pushing African writers to include his widely overlooked and very well connected evil apprentice. Unless Ben, in his role as the “Obama whisperer” wrote it himself.
