After the drama of the recent US Elections, I thought we’d have a theme of US Presidents for this issue.  Some were real life presidents, some fictional. 

  1. Q.  Ronald Reagan was an actor before moving into politics.  In which 1951 film did he “co-star” with a chimpanzee?
  2. Q. Which President pardoned Richard Nixon?
  3. Q. Bill Pullman played President Thomas J. Whitmore in which 1996 film blockbuster?
  4. Q. Which president was nicknamed “Ike”?
  5. Q. Who played the president in the film Air Force One?
  6. Q. Four US presidents have won the Nobel Peace Prize but which was the only one to have won after he left office?
  7. Q. Which president did Robin Williams play in Night at the Museum?
  8. Q. “Assassins” is a musical about the people who have attempted (successfully or otherwise) to assassinate the US President, from Abraham Lincoln to Gerald Ford.  Who wrote this musical?
  9. Q. “Hanging chads” was a term few people had heard of until it was at the core of a disputed UK Presidential election.  Who won the election, whom did he defeat and which state was the centre of the controversy?
  10. Q. Who was president when the US war in Vietnam ended?
  11. Q. ……and finally, we have to have a Trump question.  According to the Washington Post (Fake News!) how many “false or misleading statements” did Donald Trump make in the 4 years of his presidency?  Award yourself a point if you are within 5000 of the number!
