PragerU uploaded a video on the Internet this week featuring a “man on the street” type segment that will literally make you weep like a kid whose dog just got smashed to bits by a semi truck, as you realize that many of the people in this will one day be running important parts of our society.
What was the question that was asked? Who our vice president is. The kind of answers that were given?
Stupid ones. Very, very stupid ones.
See for yourself.
Answers ranged from, “Uh, Obama?” to “Aw crap, I should know this.”Trending:
Witt surveyed a number of people, and yet only a single individual was able to answer his question correctly.
“Uh…this is so embarrassing.”Advertisement - story continues below
“Not even sure.”
One person even suggested that the vice president was Donald Trump.
When a woman answered correctly, Witt stated: “You’re like the first person to get that today!”
Here is the full video. Prepare yourself for maximum cringe.
How is it possible, in the information age where everyone has access to news and media as soon as it’s produced, for anyone in this country to not know who their own vice president is? Please explain this madness.
Politics have saturated every aspect of mainstream American culture, literally nothing these days goes without the pervasive touch of the political, and yet, somehow, there are still dopey folks out there who manage to have their heads buried so deeply in the sand they have no clue what’s actually going on.
What’s even more terrifying is that these people still vote. They simply walk into the polling station and just vote for the party they or their family has always been loyal to, and then go about their day not giving any of these things a second thought.
