Libertarian presidential nominee Gary Johnson asked a television interviewer today, “What is Aleppo?” betraying a lack of interest or even superficial knowledge of the civil war in Syria that’s been raging for more than five years.
The question came during an interview on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe.” Panelist Mike Barnicle asked the two-time libertarian nominee and former governor of New Mexico, “What would you do if you were elected, about Aleppo?”
At first, Barnicle thought Johnson was joking — replying with “you’re kidding” — when Johnson didn’t recognize the city.
Johnson admits to being a user of marijuana. Apparently it has made him utterly senseless. And embarrassing to anyone who thought of voting for him.
