Tipping Point contestant makes major Abraham Lincoln blunder in viral clip

An ITV quiz show contestant is going viral online after making a major blunder about when Abraham Lincoln was alive.

Primary school teacher, Hanifa, appeared on Tipping Point, when she was asked by host, Ben Shepherd: “At the Malta Summit in 1989, which US president declared the end of the Cold War?”

Hanifa responded: “I should know this as I did A Level history…I’m debating between two. J.F Kennedy and Abraham Lincoln.”

Abraham Lincoln was assassinated in 1865 after leading the United States through the American Civil War.
