‘Jeopardy!’ fans react to clues about Jan. 6 Committee members Liz Cheney and Bennie Thompson

A couple of innocuous clues on Jeopardy! left some viewers wondering if the show was getting political. Under the category “The Representative From…,” the first two clues pertained to members of the January 6 Committee.

The first clue under the category was, “Wyoming: This woman starting in 2017, taking the seat her dad had won nearly 40 years before.”

Contestant Yungsheng Wang correctly answered, “Who is Liz Cheney?”

The very next clue was, “Mississippi: Bennie Thompson who chairs the select committee investigating the events of this date in 2021.”

This time contestant Alicia O’Hare correctly responded,” What is January 6th?”

The two clues definitely didn't go unnoticed on Twitter.
