Employers asking who won 2020 election, to weed out crazies...

Just read something along those lines on social media, and have to ask.

If I get that question, should I go with "Stacey Abrams" or "humanity"?
They both seem accurate.

1. Hmmmm, how about, "is political acumen part of the job requirement?"

2. I think of it more as the kind of question they ask you in the emergency room .. .

"Who is President of the United States?", when they're checking for disorientation or shock.

11. When my wife was coming out of anaesthesia

back in October, they started asking a series of questions to judge how she was doing. When the nurse asked who the president was, the love of my life mumbled "Orange Mussolini." The nurse looked puzzled, asked the question again, got the same response. Nurse looked at me quizzically. "She means Trump. She doesn't like to say the name." The nurse laughed and said "I don't either!"

4. It's close to one of the question on the dementia-screening test, interestingly enough

5. True. But my cynical, suspicious little mind would wonder if they were on the loonie side,

and wanted people who live in the alternate universe.

3. Joe Biden.

The truthful answer.

My question then would be what answer are you looking for? If they donít answer right I would immediately tell them I am not interested and end the interview.

7. Thank God my employer never asked this question about the 2016 election.

I would have truthfully answered "Vladimir Putin", and gotten fired.

8. Joe Biden won the election

To say otherwise disrespects him.

In my humble opinion of course

12. I agree!

I hadn't thought of it that way, but now that you mention it, definitely yes!
