226. I think it's more like "poor, uninformed person"
"Ignorant poor man" carries the meaning that Obama has neither knowledge nor money.

"Poor, uninformed person" conveys the meaning of "pobre" as poor in the sense of "pitiful"

And after having spent much time myself with Venezuelans from the barrio, I learned that they often used "ignorante" in the sense of "uninformed". They had choicer words for "ignorant", but their favorite expression seemed to be "No sabes nada, cojeburra"
