Long-running game show Jeopardy! alluded to President Barack Obama’s liberalism by featuring a “Farther left than Barack Obama” category during the Double Jeopardy round of Wednesday night’s show.
The premise was simple enough: When a contestant chose an answer in the category, Alex Trebek showed them a photo of Obama with a national or international political leader standing stage left to them, and the contestant had to name the politician (in question form, of course).
That’s about where anything related to Obama’s liberal nature ended. Nearly all of the politicians featured were Republican or conservative-leaning, including Texas Gov. Rick Perry, British Prime Minister David Cameron, and House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-Va.).
