Donald J. Trump has proved himself so incredibly ignorant about history, geography, civics and almost everything else that some have speculated he wouldn’t even be able to pass the test that prospective American citizens have to pass.

What do you think? Some of the real questions (and his very possible answers) are below:

Regardless of anything I say and do, anyone I insult, how many lies I tell, and no matter how I make you feel completely embarrassed to be an American, you promise to worship me like I was Vladimir Putin. Do I pass?
