Are You Smarter Than A President?

Posted by Rob Mania on


Recently, Trump has challenged his own secretary of state, Rex Tillerson, to an IQ test. It isn’t the first time he’s tried to turn his presidency into a game show, and it won’t be the last. Now, IQ tests are, to my knowledge, an outdated way of measuring intelligence. So, here are some questions that I think the president of the United States should be able to answer. They aren’t all that complicated, which is the point. The answers are listed below, so you can play along.

  1. Who is the president of General Motors?
  2. What is the federal minimum wage?
  3. Can a person born in a military base that is not part of the contiguous US or AK/HI run for president?
  4. Are Native Americans allowed to vote?
  5. Is Guam a territory, a colony, a commonwealth, or a state, and find it on a map.
  6. Who wrote the melody of the Star Spangled Banner?
  7. Who wrote the lyrics to the Star Spangled Banner?
  8. “My Country ’Tis of Thee” has the same melody as what English song?
  9. What president put the words “under god” in the pledge of allegiance?
  10. Name two actresses who have portrayed Wonder Woman
  11. How many colors are there on a Rubik’s Cube?
  12. Spell “Rubik’s Cube.”
  13. Which came first, Rocky or Rambo?
  14. What came first, the Iron Age or the Bronze Age?
  15. Antidisestablishmentarianism is being against what being no longer established?
  16. What is Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson’s real name?
  17. Is singer Ryan Adams the son of singer Bryan Adams?
  18. Name every member of Crosby, Stills, Nash, & Young
  19. If you go to a restaurant and spend $200, what should you tip?
  20. How many more people voted for Hillary Clinton than Donald Trump in 2016?
