I must confess I haven’t watched “Jeopardy” in decades, but from what I remember, the contestants generally ranged from pretty clever to genius.

As a dedicated news junkie, I automatically assumed that most Americans would recognize Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA), the man who presided over the Democrats’ impeachment inquiry for three months last fall.

On the Wednesday edition of “Jeopardy,” the category was U.S. Representatives. A photo of Adam Schiff was shown and the clue was “1/53rd of California’s House delegation is this Intelligence Committee chairman.” Schiff would be stunned to learn that no one knew the answer.

The Daily Caller’s David Hookstead tweeted a clip from the show below with the caption “Adam Schiff was an answer on Jeopardy today. Not a single person knew who he was.”

Could it be that most Americans have tuned out the Democrats’ latest gambit to remove President Trump from office and just might be a little smarter than they think?

It sure looks that way.
