  1. I get this is from clip of stupid people. But seriously the US thinks they are the best nation and superior.

  2. Ralph Norman because he is in the H of R for my district in my state:) or Tim Scott or Lindsay Graham cause they鈥檙e also for my state:)

  3. The interviewer is so creepy. Touching all these cookies with his bare hands, then asking to see someone's boob. Not cool.

  4. People in the comments saying that Americans are idiots for not knowing a member of congress are idiots themselves

  5. Sorry but the fact that jimmy said stay in school. No class teaches the actual names of congressional members. Its all up to the individual to know things like this and it comes down to if they are politically active or care about politics.

  6. Cory booker, Elizabeth warren, Mitch Mconnell, Bob Casey, pat toomey, Mark Warner, John tester, Kamala harris, Adam schiff, devin nunes, Lloyd snicker, Bernie Sanders, Paul Ryan, chuck schumer, nancy pelosi, Jeff flake, that鈥檚 all I can think of and I鈥檓 sure I spelled Mitch鈥檚 last name wrong too

  7. I'm not an American but I can name around two dozen members of the U.S. Congress… How counter-intuitive!

  8. I could name at least a dozen members of Congress, and I'm not even American… but I suppose if I was American, I might also be incapable of thinking or knowing anything… Hm….

  9. Not knowing a member of Congress is one thing but… How can that lady not know a branch of government?

  10. Every person doesn't have to know/follow politics – it's a big world find something that interest you….. what would they benefit knowing speaker of the house?

  11.

  12. I wouldn't want a cookie who someone else touched. Many people don't wash their hands & half of phones & hands have traces of ecoli/feces on them gross. If you handle food you should be wearing gloves.

  13. oof i would鈥檝e gotten this only bc i just took my constituion test for 7th grade lol but if it was a year later i would be like uhhhhhhhh

  14. OMG!!! They couldn't even name the U.S. Representative from their own congressional district?! I know at least 10 congressmen and I'm only a teenager. Paul Ryan, Nancy Pelosi, Chuck Schumer, Marco Rubio, Bill Nelson, Ted Yoho, Al Lawson, John McCain, Bernie Sanders. There's so much more!!!

  15. Failure of the US society and education system to not only teach critical thinking skills but to show how important self learning and knowledge actually is. It鈥檚 so hilarious when Americans say oh this is just people picked, we鈥檙e not all like this, etc. No. It鈥檚 quite clear the US is WAY behind in this area and that there is a systemic problem.

  16. According to this comment section, you are a failure at life if you don't memorize the entire list of congressmen.

  17. I know the name of the vice president – but it wouldn't be worth saying it for a cookie. The dignity of the office is worth more than that.

  18. This is what should have happened:
    Name a member of congress and I'll give you a cookie
    How about I name someone who's not as well known and if you can confirm it or deny it without looking it up, YOU can have the cookie
    (walks away to ask someone else on the street)
    I bet you when the guy said John Gilbert they had to stop to look it up to see if he was, and that's what was going on between the edits. Let's be honest, no one knows their representive unless their into politics. I'm from the bay area and if I went around asking who nancy Pelosi is, probably 25% would know, if that

  19. that last clown should be expelled. that 2 year old kid from Honduras you're afraid of probably knows more than that person.

  20. I can't believe how stupid some people are… This is ignorance plain and simple. A failure on our Education system. This is so sad.

  21. Mitch McConnell, Barbara Lee, Bernie Sanders, Rashid Tlaib, Ilhan Omar, Alexandria Ocoso Cotez, Nancy Pelosi, Adam Shiff, Mark Pokan, Roe Khanna, Rand Paul…I think I'm tired of this game . VP is Mike Pence, branch of government; Executive branch, Senate, House of Representatives. I even know where North Korea is. Someone stole it and stuck it on my world map. Kim Jung Un would probably like to have it back. Tell him it's going to cost him.

  22. Yo que no hablo bien ingles se mas que esos que entrevistaron. Con razon trump dice que las turbinas eolicas causan cancer.

  23. I'm disappointed in myself because I only know a few, guess I should feel good considering this video 馃槀

  24. I don't know but it doesn't even matter because I'm not going to eat that cookie out of your nasty hand

  25. "People don't want to be informed, they just want to feel informed."

    Thanks Roger Aisle, your prediction came true spectacularly

  26. Everyone should almost certainly know 3: the two senators and congress person that represents them
