President Obama is facing the lowest approval numbers of his presidency — 41 percent in the most recent WSJ/NBC News poll — leaving his media supporters scrambling to shore up support for the White House.

But new MSNBC host Ronan Farrow definitely scrambled the furthest, traveling all the way to Kenya to ask people what they felt about America’s 44th president. “In America, Barack Obama’s popularity has sunk to some of its lowest levels since he took office,” Farrow began. “But what do people think of him here in Kenya?”

The 26-year-old wunderkind (did you know he was a Rhodes Scholar?) canvassed slums and shopping malls in the East African nation, asking Kenyans what they thought of Barack Obama. And if he got any negative responses, he sure didn’t air them.

“Obama is our son from Kenya,” one man said matter-of-factly. “We love him.” A young woman called Obama “a good person. He helps the needy people.” A bearded man told Farrow he’s “blessing him for God’s loves him, because the talented he is given — eh, that vision of leadership.”

Speaking through a translator, a young man claimed that “Kenyans still love Barack Obama and [I] hope that everyone in Kenya emulates him, because he is an exemplary leader.”

Viewers were even treated to a patois-heavy song lauding President Obama for — well, something. The singer definitely mentioned his name a couple of times, anyway.

“And just think,” Farrow cracked at the segment’s conclusion, “they don’t even have Obamacare yet!”
