A Jeopardy contestant got quite the reaction after revealing her answer to a question on the game show that poked fun at liberals.
“THE FLOWER PICTURED HERE IS CALLED THIS, ALSO A DISPARAGING TERM FOR PEOPLE ON THE POLITICAL LEFT,” the screen read.
“I have a feeling that you may have found a way to insult liberals in this country,” host Alex Trebek predicted before showing Becky Sullivan’s answer.
“What is a pansy,” she revealed, prompting laughter from the crowd.
“Yep, you found a way to insult liberals in this country and you are incorrect,” Trebek continued.
The correct response was a “bleeding heart”, which was answered by the other contestant Sean Anderson.
“Although I do like pansy,” Trebek admitted.
Sullivan is a producer for NPR and is based in Washington D.C.
