Watch as Americans Admit to Having NO IDEA Who Washington, D.C. is Named After!

Written by Onan Coca


Comedian, media analyst, and author Mark Dice is at it again exposing the completely inadequate foundation of knowledge that most Americans have. In his latest “man on the street” video, Dice asks innocent (or is it ignorant?) passersby if they could tell him who our nations capital, the city of Washington, D.C., is named for. Quick spoiler alert… this does not end well for America.

What historical figure is the city of Washington D.C. named after? That SHOULD be common sense, right? Well, not anymore. Media analyst Mark Dice asks random beachgoers in San Diego who our nation’s Capital is named after and you’ll see their answers are sad and shocking. Many Americans are getting dumber by the day. You better wake up before it’s too late.

Here are a few of their answers…

Erm, OK, umm, see why you gotta ask me something like that, can I Google it?”

“You have to tell us,” before admitting, “I have no idea.”

“I don’t really care.”

“I don’t know, I just woke up.” 

“Our nation’s capital is Washington D.C. and I don’t know who it’s named after.”

“Some president, I don’t know, is it you?”
