Keke Palmer not knowing who Dick Cheney is has inspired some hilarious memes
16 September 2019, 12:59
Keke Palmer memes are everywhere after the actress admitted she did not know who Dick Cheney was. "I hate to say it, I hope I don't sound ridiculous, I don't know who this man is," she said of Cheney in the now-viral Keke Palmer Vanity Fair lie detector interview clip.
Keke Palmer stars in the instant classic Hustlers, which was released on 13 September. The actress, singer, and dancer is known for her sense of humour and her candid way of speaking. In a recent promotional interview with Vanity Fair, Keke answered a bunch of questions while strapped to a lie detector. One soundbite from the interview that has the internet in stitches is the moment where Keke admits she doesn't know who Dick Cheney is.

The memes about Keke Palmer not knowing Dick Cheney started after she was asked who made a better Vice President, her old Nickelodeon character True Jackson, or former VP Dick Cheney.
Keke answered truthfully, admitting that she "wouldn't know a thing" about Dick Cheney.
"I hate to say it, I hope I don't sound ridiculous, I don't know who this man is," she said. "I mean, he could be walking down the street I wouldn't...I wouldn't know a thing. Sorry to this man."

Dick Cheney was Vice President in the George W. Bush administration from 2001-2009. To be quite honest with you, I envy Keke for not knowing this man.
The clip of Keke Palmer not recognising Dick Cheney soon inspired tons of memes about moments in history people would like to forget.

If Keke doesn't know Dick Cheney, then I DEFINITELY reserve the right not to know any of my ill-conceived crushes from ages 11 to 21.
Meanwhile, the Hustlers star commented on the meme and she's having as much fun with it as we are.
