If I was a legal citizen,and studied for this, I would have done better. Every naturalized citizen of America should have to study and take these type tests.

Didn’t do too well, but I don’t think this stuff was taught in my history classes. Loved the ringer about Warren.

All of these questions were about presidents except one. Who gives a rodent’s derriere if Elizabeth Warren has a drop of Native American blood?
She should zip it.

Yes, my blonde nephew, who is very conservative, has the same percentage of African blood that Elizabeth Warren claims to have of whichever tribe she is claiming – Cherokee, is it? Shouldn’t the Democrats be fawning all over my nephew and praising him for the diversity he brings to the world?

Worst I’ve ever done on one of these. Missed 5! Wish there was a little more detail like WHY was Tyler called “His Accidency”? But THX, these things are fun.

I agree, we could learn more if there was a little explanation of the answers.

7 out of 14! Probably half of those were lucky guesses. Good thing I’m not a legal immigrant!

12/14. Just watched a documentary on the Adams family so knew that JQ served 16 years in the House Of Representatives AFTER his presidency.

I always liked the Adams Family. They were kooky and spooky.

There is a way to settle the debate. DNA will tell. If you’re a “flat earther”, you get a pass for not trusting science.

I couldn’t find that JQ Adams ever was Speaker…he served in Congress from 1830 until 1848 after he was US President…but did not see anything about him being Speaker…

After he was President? 10 out of 14.

He wasn’t. He was in the House from 1830 until his death in 1848, but he was not Speaker.

I would have loved an explanation/illumination of the answers so we could actually *learn* something from them. (Example: going through the Presidents in my mind, I could only think of three former Senators — WHO were the other 13?)

I can think of four : Obama, LBJ,Nixon, Kennedy; don’t know the others either!

This made me curious enough to actually do a bit of research. Fortunately I found a chart in Wikipedia! Here are the 16 former senators who later became presidents: James Monroe, Andrew Jackson, John Quincy Adams, Martin Van Buren, William Henry Harrison, John Tyler, James Buchanan, Franklin Pierce, Andrew Johnson, Benjamin Harrison, Warren Harding, Harry Truman, Lyndon B. Johnson, Richard Nixon, John F. Kennedy, Barack Obama. I listed them in the order in which they were originally elected to the Senate.
