Dan Joseph, a reporter for the conservative Media Research Center, recently asked college students at George Mason University in Fairfax, Va. to identify Russian President Vladimir Putin and U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry, but many were stumped.
However, the students were able to explain "twerking" in detail (video below).
“Do you know who Vladimir Putin is?" Joseph asked students.
One girl simply replied, "No," but added, "sounds familiar."
Another female student answered, "No idea."
"Sounds familiar, sounds like someone I should know who I read about in a history book, so I feel like an idiot right now," added another young lady.
“Isn’t he from Russia?” asked one student.
Joseph then asked the students if they knew who the U.S. Secretary of State was, but got similar responses.
“Oh no, don’t do this to me. Don’t make me look like an idiot,” said a female student.
