Joe Biden Might Need an Atlas—Calls African Continent One Nation in Speech

Speaking today at the U.S.-Africa Leaders Summit, Vice President Joe Biden committed a minor gaffe when he spoke about the "nation of Africa" and its economic potential.

Africa, of course, is a continent consisting of 55 states, not a singular entity.

Twitter was amused:

It is unknown if Biden gets geography lessons from actress Molly Ringwald.
