Why isn't Washington DC in Washinton State?!?


Recommended Posts

Let's do the Math. Washington D.C. was founded on July 16, 1790.

Washington the state became a state in 1889.

Now why the **** would DC be in the state of Washington?

EDIT: OK you're European. You get a pass but you should still do a little research before asking a question like this and making yourself look stupid.

Dude, WASHINGTON DC (District of Columbia between Maryland and Virginia, East Coast) and WASHINGTON STATE (Pacific Coast on the WEST) are both named after President George Washington. Thats why they both bare the name. Because the first president was a freaking beast. Thats it for why they have the same names, not for any other affiliation.
