Who is the US’s Father?

Dr. Phil needn’t get involved – there’s no paternity test or DNA swabs required for this one in the immigration test. The father of our country, the daddy of the United States of America is George Washington. It may be something to do with his part in the founding fathers – whose plural signifier makes me think that there was more than one baby daddy – or the fact that he was the first president. Which puts old George Washington as the correct answer for two potential questions on the exam.
