On Wednesday, high schoolers across the United States took the AP English exam, a standardized test made of multiple choice and essay questions. One essay question presented a golden opportunity that, judging by Twitter, many students were loathe to pass up.
The question was inspired by the column "America the Illiterate," written in 2016 by journalist and progressive writer Chris Hedges. According to Buzzfeed, the question asked how much of a role "artifice," which is cunning or deceit, played in politics.
In this day and age, how could President Donald Trump not come to mind?
He certainly came to a lot of high schooler's minds, and the resulting social media solidarity is as amusing as it is affirming.
It's good to know the next generation can find the humor in a bad situation. Congratulations to all those who finished their AP exams.
